When it's holiday gift-giving-and-getting time in New York, it's not whether you've been naughty or nice that counts, it's all about the who's who of what elves you know. And I, being an uptown elf, like giving all that glitters and lovely objects that make friends' homes into home sweet home.
Round Green Onyx Ring by Monica Vinader ($230): Love the classic shape and sassy green color for some pop…. Brightens up any outfit.
John Derian Découpage Peony Tray ($110) This tray is a great bestie / hostess gift. Perfect for the bedside table to drop your baubles in before bed. There are tons of flowers to choose from, too (but the peonies are especially chic, I think).
Italian Gold and Python Cuff from the 70s ($225):My favorite combination, navy and gold, and the price for this piece is terrific, considering age, condition and materias.
Sixties Cream Enamel Shimmy Shimmy Necklace ($105) Great statement necklace, for a great price.
Vintage Oyster Gold Rolex ($7,075) Gold Rolex men’s watch for him or her. I love it!! This is the one I will be wishing for under the tree this year…and next year and then the next one after that!
Adrienne Laudau Faux Fur Vest ($225): The Bergdorf Goodman box alone makes me giddy to see under a tree! And this piece from master furrier Adrienne Landau makes it even better because it’s faux!
