The world is full of kickass earrings just waiting to be discovered. And New York is just one great place to seek and explore. The people watching is captivating. The architecture is epic. Imposing, bold and intense. Just like a good earring.
When you’re in town, there are some top places it’s worth making time for.
First up and keeping it central, there are loads of crazy jewellery shops around Nomad on Broadway. They are cheap and outrageous. It literally feels like being in a bizarre sweet shop. The vintage stores around Lower East side are also really fun places to seek out more stylish gems. Start at David Owens Vintage Clothing at 161 Rivington and then explore the neighbourhood. Last month we found some great metal earrings shaped like fried eyes in Manhattan's Chelsea Flea Market. They are properly kitsch with plenty of personality.
Forget the subway and walk over the imposing Brooklyn Bridge (well worth the effort) to explore sprawling Flea markets. If you happen to be lucky enough to be there when A Current Affair (a pop-up vintage marketplace that also visits LA) is open, make sure you cement it in your diary. That's where you'll find the premo stuff. And even if you're not game for a splurge, it's fascinating to wander around. Check out some great lots originally sourced from Brooklyn hotspots in The Throwback Set.
There's nothing better than that rush of adrenaline when you spot a good layout of treasure. It's the anticipation of finding something in the mix that you know you just can't leave without. Check out our range of fashion forward earrings inspired by New York icons in The Power Lineup.
