New York jewelry attractions

I am a studio jeweller in the UK and I am lucky enough to be coming
to New York for a month in the Fall. Could any of you jewellers out
there point mein the direction of good galleries to check out and
tool shops in the area.

Thanks very much

Though I’ve never been to their shop I enjoy ordering from
Metalliferous. The store is at 34 West 46th street on the second
floor I think.

They’re a tools/findings/silver shop.


Best Jewelry Stores: Fragments in SoHo, Bergdorf Goodmans high design
jewelry department on 5th Ave and 59th St, MoMA Design Store on 53rd
St btwn 5th and 6th Ave Stores with supplies: Metalliferous on 38th
and 6th Ave, for fashion beads(high end), go to Elvee Rosenburg on
38th, and all of the bead stores between 36-39th st and 6th ave

Tools and Supplies:

The Diamond District: 47th st. between 5th and 6th ave. Check out
Ross Metals and Myron Toback for findings and supplies if you don’t
get too blinded by all the shiny things in the windows.

Metalliferous: 46th st between 5th and 6th ave. Tools, raw
materials, findings of all kinds in sterling and base metals, chain,
etc, etc.

All Craft : 29th St between 7th and 8th ave. You can’t really browse
around but if you’re looking for a specific tool or raw materials,
they probably have it!

Dikra Gem: 56 W 45th st (between 5th and 6th aves)

Jewelry Gallery:

Aaron Faber:
666 5th Ave at 53rd St.
Amazing collection of studio jewelry.

Takishimaya : Japanese department store that has a lovely, unique
jewelry department and a really great atmosphere. 5th ave between
54th and 55th st.

They also have great ancient jewelry collections at the Metropolitan
Museumof Art.

Enjoy your trip!


After reading all the tips regarding Washington, I wonder if this
community has some tips for my visit to New York January 18 to 27.

Museum of art and design to see the work of Daniel Brush, is on the
list anyother suggestions?

If you are a jewelry maker (and have a wholesale license) - I would
check out CJS (cjssales. com). They sell all sorts of jewelry
findings, beads, vintage, close-out stuff. It’s a large warehouse
with over 2,000 square feet of boxes to sift through. ONLY worth
going if you’ve got time, patience and a good imagination and need a
workout. Last time I was in NYC, I went there two days in a row for
a few hours on each day. I left NYC with an additional 13lbs of
vintage beads, metal components and findings and I’m still "playing"
with the finds. It was a lot of fun!
