When deciding what to sell at Aenigma Jewelry & Accessories, Lynda Kane doesn't order from the usual catalogs or wish-granting jewelry genies. Instead, she travels
to Colombia, Thailand, Turkey, and other far-flung destinations in search of original finds. Once there, she collaborates with local artisans on the unique pieces, transporting them back to her Collingswood shop and onto the earlobes and wrists of her patrons. It's the next step in a family tradition?her parents would travel the globe, then return with one-of-a-kind pieces for Kane and her sister.
It's a formula that works. Her patrons laud Kane and the knowledgeable staff for their "magnificent pieces" and "great taste," which are evident when pouring through a collection that includes floral statement necklaces, jewel-ensconced pendants, and handmade, unique jewelry.
