Madison Avenue, NYC

NY Times Photographer/Legend Bill Cunningham 

AN invite to a book signing with the gracious Pamela Fiori...former editor of Town & Country-now author of a glamorous coffee table tome, In The Spirit of Palm Beach-opened our eyes to a chicly refined jewelry boutique ...TAMSEN Z.

We may not wear much jewelry but we recognize quality---as in hard to source, unique precious gemstones-crafted into very hard to make-intricate, detailed hand-wrought designs, highly detailed- that harks back to old-world traditions.

Elegant ---one of a kind, modern pieces...that command attention...and are true luxury pieces...not mass market 'luxury' items. In that, it reminds us of what true old-world glamour really stood for-much like Palm Beach itself-in a way.

Tamsen A. Ziff-

Designed by Tamsen Ann Ziff   -who we learned, in her 'spare' time, chairs the Metropolitan Opera and is Vice Chairman on the Board of Directors for Lincoln Center---as well as a board member of other distinguished charities!

Another old-world luxury item-seriously #-ply cashmere- is knit for the 21st century and fashioned into contemporary classics by Christopher Fischer. With boutiques on Madison Avenue, SOHO... East Hampton and Southampton...the designer (of Scottish heritage...) offers on trend men's, women's and children's apparel and exquisite accessories- all finely made into a wide range of items-from  sporty, easy to wear "casual' separates-to plush luxury items.
