Another Reason we love our Neighborhood!
Zoubir and I couldn’t miss the chance to to try the area’s best chefs right across the street from our store at the Taste of the Upper West Side on Saturday. Live music, flowing wines, dishes from all of the best restaurants, and even an acrobat serving champagne upside down. Oh and did we mention desserts galore? Besides meeting chefs from so many great restaurants, we even ran into a few of our favorite customers and spotted quite a bit of KTcollection jewelry in the crowd. I couldn’t resist asking Gabrielle permission to snap a photo of her decked in multiple necklaces and KTcollection earrings. Our favorite tasting dish? The ceviche from Tangled Vine. I will definitely be spending an evening there very soon. So many other restaurants to visit too. All part of the job of settling into our new neighborhood.
Don’t miss this event in 2014. And thank you to the Columbus Avenue BID for helping small businesses such as ourselves and organizing this evening.
Our plans for Memorial Day Weekend? See “The Great Gatsby!” We were inspired to pinpoint pieces in our collection that look like relics from the roaring 20′s. With the rainy forecast in New York, we may even have time to curl up and reread The Great Gatsby.
Enjoy your Memorial Day weekend!
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!

Here is the perfect jewelry to go with this Spring’s hottest trends. Sexy cutouts, contrasting black and white clothes, glamorous embellishments, nautical stripes and colorful floral prints are in this year. Here is how to accessorize these stylish looks.
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.”
