A resilient, charitable small business that has survived a trial by fire, Bangles, Bags, & Bling stocks its 2,000-square-foot showroom with an eclectic inventory of fashionable frills. Shoppers can organize keys, wallets, and the library cards of alter egos in a black and white damask handbag ($17.99). Light beams glint off the crystal accents that dot a pair of antique gold-teardrop earrings ($10.99), illuminating lobes and the steady ticking hands of a silver-tone watch ($9.99). A polka-dotted fashion scarf ($6.99) exudes an air of couture when worn around necks on chilly days or as blindfolds during championship piñata tournaments.
Owned by David Mann Cyrkin—a ninth-generation IJO jeweler—and his wife Denise, David Mann Jewelers has been selling high-quality, custom-designed jewelry to the Genesee Valley community for 57 years. Along with adorning gemstones and helping clients design the one engagement ring to rule them all, David Mann carries collections from designers such as Elle and Parle. Trick out dull limbs with a Chamilia charm ($27+), a trinket from Beads by Betsy ($50+), or a silver bracelet ($15+), or keep ears anchored firmly in place with earrings ($20+). A hand-blown glass holder for rings ($25) gives the glitzy a stylish way to store all their precious bands and cereal-box decoders. David Mann will also happily appraise ($50+) your ornaments, determining if your Green Lantern power ring is authentic by testing its ability to affect yellow objects. In addition to designing and selling beautiful baubles, David Mann also performs expert ring sizing, jewelry repair, and cleaning.
