Sometimes there is nothing better to get you in the mood for the holidays and freed from the grouchy, pushy, angry shoppers out in the real world, then by stepping into a wonderland, if you will, filled with sparkles,Â gems, stones, jewels, diamonds, rocks, and baubles which glow and entrance you the second you walk in.Â Tiny Jewel Box is one of those special places and last week, they hosted a private holiday party where their selected guests were able to meet legendary designers (Alex Sepkus, Marco Bicego, Penny Preville, Rodney Rayner, MCL, John Hardy, Jaeger-LeCoultre)Â who flew in from all parts north, south, east and west for this lovely night.
We learned of stones which were being cut and placed into unique settings (making them more affordable), of vintage collections, of special designs that were clearly one of a kind, of award winning pieces that for a mere tens of thousands of dollars, could be worn on your very own fingers.Â I fell in love with more than one glass case and then we ventured up in the elevator to the second story playground.Â Here the Tiny Jewel Box offers David Yurman, scarfs, handbags, furs, jewelry boxes, pillows and other delicious design gems.
While that evening I didn’t take off with anything other than a few bags of candy from the Candy Bar, the diamond and emerald sugarplums certainly continue to dance in my head.
Tiny Jewel Box is located at 1147 Connecticut Ave, NW.
