Jewelry shopping is a materialist’s minefield if ever there was one. Between the vultures ready to pick you apart for every stone and precious metal to “celebrity” designers hocking cheap costume jewelry, the whole business makes boxing look legit. And that’s to say nothing of the tacky, outdated designs, most of which would make Aunt Rita from Boca blush.
If you’re shopping for someone south of 100, however — and someone who appreciates a singular artistic vision and untraditional beauty — then, Thursday & Friday, 12/2-12/3, don’t miss Giles & Brother‘s semiannual sample sale featuring up to 75% off jewelry for men and women, including bracelets, necklaces, bangles, rings, … We’re talkin’ Rhinestone bangles for $40; Enamel Snake sracelets for $75; … Cash Only.
