Camille Hempel


Jewelry designer Camille Hempel's eponymous bauble boutique caters to both ladies and gents—and not just dudes in search of something for their lady friends. Behind girly Pepto-pink barn doors studded wtih masculine vintage-automobile tailights lie cases of the Williamsburg shop's chunky, mostly androgynous hammered-metal baubles. The unisex Big Engine rings resemble tiny fan belts, struts and V8 motors ($120-$220); and the Gogo line has a silhouette of a busty, high-heeled naked woman stamped into silver pendants ($65).
