Diamonds may well be a girl’s best friend but they usually come with a heart-wrenching price-tag. At Pippin Vintage Jewelry in the affluent Chelsea District, it’s possible to lay your hands on precious gems for a fraction of the prices charged by the high-end stores. Laid out with mahogany antique cases and blue velvet displays, Pippin feels like a traditional jewelry store without the pretentiousness. Jewelry ranges from highly affordable costume pieces like cameo brooches and chunky acrylic necklaces, to more refined luxury pieces in 18ct gold. You’ll find a quirky array of other accessories too, from feather-topped hats, to boas, scarves and clothing from bygone eras.
