ESTATE JEWELS by George & Raf

My friend Allyson has the best taste in costume jewelry, with a motto, "the bolder the better", a girl after my own heart. When I asked her where and whom was the source of such treasures, she told me about Estate Jewel by George & Raf in Fort Green Brooklyn.

I had to go see for myself.
Enter through a garden (work still in progress), peek through the window and enter a world of wonder. More then a store it’s a salon and here are your hosts George and Raf. Sip a glass of wine and start selecting from a collection of costume jewelry that span nearly 150 years of American and European design.

With name like YSL, Napier, Trifari, KJL, Dior, Pierre Cardin you have a lot to choose from and at every price points.

Check yourself in one of the four mirrors equipped with different lighting, be it an intimate candle diner, a red carpet event or a brightly lit party, your host will be here to help and style you.

Vitrines full of treasures

And when you think you have found the perfect piece, out of the corner of your eyes you will see an other one you can’t live without, and before you know it you will have had the most wonderful time.

Rhinestones galore...

Snake jewelry are always in fashion.

And what should you be on the lookout for next ? George predicts tassels on earrings and long 20’s necklaces, 50’s plastic jewelries for the summer, collars necklaces and the comeback of cameos.

This earrings will be perfect with a printed summer dress...

And if you can’t come to the salon let the salon come to you as you can shop on line.
