We had another wonderful monthly wine and jewelry night yesterday! Thanks for joining us. Mark your calendars for the next one on Wednesday, June 12th. Congratulations to Nellie, Gedeon, and Lei who won the jewelry raffle.
For our first Mother’s Day in the store, we decided to make it a family affair. We served coffee, mimosas, cupcakes, and cookies and encouraged the dads to help their kids make jewelry for moms at a craft table outside. Meanwhile, moms and ladies had a moment to browse and come inside for a treat. (Yes we delivered refreshments to the dads outside too….) Katie’s children, Sophie and Liam, helped decorate the store, serve the customers, and Sophie and Lola (daughter of KTcollection’s Ann Marie) helped manage the craft table and gave out lollipops. We loved meeting so many wonderful families and the impromptu gathering that spilled into the sidewalk. Thank you to all who made KTcollection part of such a special day.
And a special congratulations to Eliza who won our jewelry raffle!

Spring 2013 Trend: Sexy Cutouts
Peekaboo! It may be a passing fad, but we’ll embrace it this season. Go bold with eye-catching colorful pieces or keep it soft and feminine with a subtle surprise. This craze may not last so choose jewelry that will!
Spring 2013 Trend: Black and White
You can skip pastels this spring and combine your basics to be au moment on this trend. Gold and silver look great on black and white, but black statement pieces take these classic tops to trendy!
Spring 2013 Trend: Embellishment
We fall in love with India every spring and summer, but this season embroidery has an updated sophistication. Bold accessories complement embellished pieces–but be careful to choose jewelry that doesn’t compete.
Spring 2013 Trend: Nautical Stripes
Breeze into summer with this casual trend. A delicate and layered look can be good if the stripes are worn on the bottom. A striped tee can be accessorized with just about anything. Pearls always work. We also like big pieces and pops of contrasting color to dress it up.
Spring 2013 Trend: Floral Prints and Bright Colors…
Blooms are always celebrated in spring, but we dare you to balance this cute and feminine look with some edgy jewelry for a hint of a rock-n-roll look.
We are officially entering wedding season! What a great way to start this busy time of year with a feature in Merci New York. Photographer and art director Jessica Schmitt had a modern vision for her brides, and she found us while seeking out contemporary jewelry.
We helped her choose pieces that are a bit more interesting than your standard strand of pearls.
Our Gold Drop Earrings are simple and elegant. They can be worn for any occasion and in this case they are beautiful on this bride. Schmitt envisioned them as part of a larger theme, which makes them even more special.
“The paint brush stroke design was incorporated through the custom made table runner and all paper products…Even the brides earrings look like a drop of paint.”

As usual, it was a lot of fun! Mark your calendars….our next Wine and Jewelry event will be on Wednesday, April 17th.
Congrats to Stephanie who won the raffle for a $75 gift certificate to KTcollection at our March 6th Wine and Jewelry event! Our second place winner was Jennifer who won a $25 gift certificate. We had a really fun group attend and we commend them for not letting the storm warning keep them at home and coming from as far as Hoboken and Brooklyn.
We also introduced our Pre-Spring Sale. Save 25% on our soft and warm cashmere scarves and fingerless gloves in the shop and online through March 20th, the first day of Spring.
We celebrate the holidays at KTcollection in February! The team is so busy in November and December that we don’t have the time to get together for a little fun. This year, we decided to celebrate in our new store. It proved to be the perfect venue for a feast and wine-tasting. Zoubir was thrilled to be able to share Languedoc Roussilln wines from his new company 3Comperes. Vietnamese food was from UWS best-kept secret Saiguette and cupcakes from Tonnie’s Minis. What a great night!
For those who don’t work for KTcollection, the party is this Wednesday, March 6th. We look forward to hosting all of you at our next monthly Wine and Jewelry Wednesday. See you there! 5:30-7:30 pm.
