- Wedding: November 2011
I was so happy to find this store that I just HAVE to share it with you all. If you are looking for antique/vintage jewelery in NYC, look no further than Erie Basin in Red Hook: http://eriebasin.com
It’s definitely off the beaten path but SO worth the trip. They have gorgeous engagement rings AND wedding bands. And very reasonable.
I received my beautiful engagement ring that my fiance purchased at Doyle & Doyle, which is also a lovely store. However, when I went back there to try and find a wedding band, they didn’t really have a big selection. So I trekked to Erie Basin and they had tons of choices, for both women and men. My future hubby and I both got rings – mine from the 20s, his from the 50s. They are both engraved with the original owner’s date/initials which I think is pretty cool too. My ring cost around $250 and his was just under $400. Similar stuff at Doyle & Doyle was over $800. (simple antique band with no stones)
Not to knock Doyle & Doyle, because their jewelery is also incredible. I recommend both places.
