Verameat in Williamsburg is one of those cool (and totally affordable) jewelery stores that you always dream about stumbling upon. The store is filled with ironic and clever designs the likes of which you’ve not seen before. Dog rings and unicorn necklaces sit beside heavy gold “kitty bangles” and delicate minimalist love heart rings. With prices ranging from $50-$300, if you fall in love with something, like the cute kissing seahorses ring (one of their best sellers) you won’t have to break the bank to buy it.
Owned by former model Vera Balyura, the store is a favorite of many a New York hipster and celebrity including Tilda Swinton, Amy Sedaris and those cute fanning sisters, Dakota and Elle. Everything is handcrafted in New York from materials like recycled silver and 14K gold. The biggest problem with this store is making a decision over to what to buy, as there’s so many great choices.Verameat. 315 East 9th Street. East Village, New York 132 N 5th Street, Williamsburg.
