Previously available only in high-end retailers such as Saks Fifth Avenue and Bergdorf Goodman, this jewelry line now has a storefront to call its own. Launched in 1999, the collection of luxe accessories has long been a red-carpet go-to for celebrities including Uma Thurman, Sofia Vergara and Mila Kunis. The cozy 500-square-foot space features dangling crystal lighting, illuminated glass display cases and the brand’s logo hand-carved in bronze on the back wall. The simple layout spotlights the decadent jewelry, including gold-and-gemstone rings lined with diamonds ($2,195) and stackable gold bangles ($1,295). Ippolita’s pieces put a creative spin on formal jewelry, borrowing from modern art and sculpture to create gems such as teardrop onyx, mother of pearl and malachite mosaic earrings ($1,695) and gold-and-malachite bangles ($4,995).
