Walking into the Geneva Watch Group's showroom in Midtown, can be overwhelming. SO many watches...so little time.


















Makers of quality fashion timepieces for a host of designer names, we previewed a number of label imprints...including Kenneth Cole, BCBG MAX AZRIA, D&G, and FREESTYLE.

D&G Watches


Dive/ surfer / skateboard inspired multi-functional athletic timepieces-some with a hint of that 80's Casio influence---include digital touch screens---our fav from Freestyle, pictured below.

ALSO SEEN:

Breil Milano collection of modern designed jewelry for women...and men.


























Classics---out of stainless steel, we love how versatile these pieces are---one can shorten/lengthen necklaces, transform bracelets into necklaces, or switch up earrings from glam danglers into dainty pieces
Bloom Earrings




















Duplicity Necklace with pave Swarovski crystals. Three looks-as a full pendant with two concentric hoops and a satin finish steel ball, as one "circle of life," -or as a pearl necklace.


...and affordable...ranging in price from $90-$155.
