Last month, jewelry and accessory designer Freida Rothman brought some sparkle to Nolita NYC with the opening of her brand’s first ever flagship store. Located on 248 Mott Street between Prince and Houston, the gorgeous boutique drew inspiration from her signature look: uptown sophistication meets downtown modern-edge. White walls with black, gold, and marble accents shelved a glittering array of necklaces, rings, bracelets and earrings.
If you’ve ever shopped at Saks 5th Avenue, Bloomingdales, Nordstrom, or any one of 400 luxury retailers across the world that carry her designs, you’re probably familiar with her stunning finishes (14k gold, platinum, or black rhodium) and beautiful sterling-silver craftwork. For Lower Manhattan residents who are fans of timeless hand/neck/arm candy, #FreidaInNolita is a literal local treasure trove!
As inspiration for her Fall 2014 collection, Freida embraced the rich texture of medieval designs and infused it with her born-and-bred New York City edge. Below are 4 of my favorite pieces to dress up an every-day look.
- METROPOLITAN Harlequin Set of 5 Rings: Choosing just one stack is impossible when you have so many incredible designs! But what I love about this especially is that the three different rings you get in this set are unique, yet versatile—easy to pair with rings I already have in my jewelry box!
- METROPOLITAN Round Shield Links Necklace: Designed with a little help from her son, this rose gold and sterling silver mix-metal necklace is a beautiful piece to dress up a white tee or knit sweater.
- THE STANDARDS Nautical Station Bracelet: A stunning piece that will seamlessly dress up your everyday arm-candy. I especially love that it’s a clasp bangle, so it won’t go sliding up and down your arm so easily.
- METROPOLITAN Slice Pave Earrings: I love the literal edge these earrings have and I can so easily see anyone wearing these with their freakum’ dress on, or a cute pair of skinny jeans.
Come out on Sunday, October 26 for 25% off the boutique and champagne while you shop! But if you can’t make that, it’ll be events galore at the flagship store from now until mid-November (including a Holiday Blogger Brunch!). Visit freidarothman.com for more information.
