Family owned, James & Williams Jewelers has been ornamenting fingers, wrists, lobes, and necks with designer and handmade jewelry since 1962. Charles Krypell's round-weave sterling-silver pendant hangs simply from a piece of black cord ($300), and the Honora diamond-and-pearl drop earrings dangle like ripe, freshwater oyster-formed berries upon a stem of 14K white gold ($275). Engagement ringsmiths include Simon G., Peter Storm, and Bez Ambar, with Scott Kay also lending his metal mettle to the men's cobalt wedding band ($290) and other masculine finger belts.
Division Street Watch Company keeps a close eye on timewear by providing specialized services in buying and selling vintage timepieces, battery replacement, and resizing wrists for handsome-watch wearing. Avoid the implied insult of not giving someone the time of day by springing for the full-service watch-battery replacement, which includes a brand-new battery, seal lubrication or replacement, re-sealing, and a one-year warranty. Be sure to write Division Street Watch Co.'s hours of operation somewhere on exposed wrists, as it is open Tuesday, Wednesday, and Friday 11 a.m. to 7 p.m.; Saturday and Sunday 12 p.m. to 5 p.m.; and Thursday by appointment only.
