In the middle of a block lined with bagel shops and delis, the year-old second location (the first is in Chelsea) of this French-themed boutique stands out as a gem, offering costume jewelry that looks way more expensive than it actually is. The Parisian expat owners buy mostly from small-scale, local designers who create unique and budget-friendly baubles that are brightly displayed on clean white shelves. Unlike the West Side locale, this boutique is accessories-only, but it’s chock-full of everything from dainty initial necklaces ($26) to nature-inspired leaf earrings ($38) and brightly colored beaded bangles ($26). It also carries high-fashion coffee-table books, including three-book sets detailing the history of Chanel ($75) and Conde Nast Traveler’s Room with a View ($65), based on the travel magazine’s namesake column about jaw-dropping hotel vistas.
