Three jewelers who cater to an East End crowd share their latest updates.
Since opening in Southampton in 2008, designer Tamara Comolli has enjoyed a great amount of success, especially with her instantly recognizable acorn-shaped Mikado pendants and Bouton stackable rings. This year, she debuts her Fairy collection, a nature-inspired collection in white, yellow, and pink golds. Clients should also seek out her other new collections such as Khaki Meets Africa—a line made with agarwood, jasper, and more—and her Champagne collection, where neutral gemstones like moonstone and quartz are accented by champagne diamonds. 27 Main St., Southampton, 283-7600
For a seller of jewelry with an incredibly esteemed heritage, Jay Waldmann of Waldmann Estate Jewelry has a very casual approach to his boutique. Clients are left unbothered to peruse over 10,000 items of rare collectibles and estate jewelry from the 16th century onwards at their leisure, including pieces from Cartier, Van Cleef & Arpels, David Webb, and Bulgari, whose signature serpentine motif is opulent and distinctive on a watch from the 1960s. 25 Main St., Southampton, 287-0904
Jeweler Elissa Schneider of Lissa Fine Jewelry wants her customers to first and foremost be wearing the right jewelry for their personality. “I guide people to what they should be wearing, not what’s trendy or what’s most expensive. I don’t sell just to sell,” she says. Featured in the salon are Schneider’s own Italian-made designs; she also has select brands displayed throughout the cases that really speak to her cutting-edge viewpoint, such as designers Lynn Ban, Colette, and Parisian designer Dinh Van.
