With lights so bright they can probably be seen from outer space, this LES beacon features handcrafted jewelry from husband-and-wife design duo Reiner Mengesdorf and Cristina Taranu. Treasure seekers will find an array of simple but extraordinary pieces, including sterling silver rings with smoky quartz stones and matching necklaces ($145 each), stackable bands with semiprecious gems (from $65) and a sterling silver sea-horse pendant gripping a sapphire stone in its mouth ($165). Big spenders can get their paws on stunning coral-shaped rose gold rings with tsavorite garnets ($3,400); little spenders should check out Charm NYC’s stylin’ head gear, which includes reversible newsboy caps ($68).
