Lots of listings in Orchid archives, Lillian. If you haven’t tried
navigating that way, you’re in for a treat!

Hi Lillian,

I actually don’t know too much about galleries in New York but try
upper Madison Avenue and also visit the Village.

I suggest that you see the New York City Christmas Craft shows;
there is one in Bryant Park behind the library at 6th Avenue and 42nd
Street, One in Grand Central Station, 42nd Street and Lexington
Avenue, and One in Union Square at 14th Street.

Also in the borough of Queens, on Austin Street in Forest Hills
there is a small shop with a wide variety of handcrafted jewelry. The
women who run the shop are also jewelers. Take the F or E train to
Continental Avenue and 71st Street.

Enjoy your visit to our big apple!

Big question!

Start at 47 street and 6th avenue. Between 6th and 5th avenues there
are more jewellery than one can imagine. Remember that every window
leads into exchange where several hundred jewelers are. One must walk
exchanges to appreciate it, but experience is not always pleasant.
One must say that hygiene habits of some goldsmith need an
improvement. Nose plugs can be useful.

On 5th avenue turn left and walk to 57 street. You would pass by
Cartier, Harry Winston, Tiffany and others. On corner of 57 and Fifth
few routes are possible. Couple of blocks up is antique store ( do
not remember name) where some Faberge originals can be seen. A lot of
interesting stores on Madison, in the same street range.

This does not even cover 10%. New York is filled with great
jewellery stores.

Try Jill Platner on Crosby Strreet in Soho. Also check out Reinstein
Ross and Fragments. That area is chock full of small shops and
galleries with beautiful jewelry. Have fun!
