Much like a fine painting, fine jewelry pleases the eye, acquires greater value with age, and looks best when mounted from human necks and earlobes. Invest in comfortably wearable art today's Groupon: for $125, you get $250 worth of fine jewelry at Ancona Jewelers in Addison.
In Ancona's sleek, glittering showroom, knowledgeable staffers guide customers through an awe-inspiring collection of skillfully set diamonds, delicately strung pearls, and timeless Swiss timepieces. Like stepping into a museum unblindfolded, visitors can run their peepers over impressive pieces from Tacori, Diana Classic, ArtCarved, Damiani, Chimento, and more in an attempt to find the perfect match for their unadorned meatsuit. The ladies' jewelry selection includes a sterling-silver 12-strand bar chain ($168), with a timeless elegance fit for any occasion, and Akoya cultured 6mm pearl earrings ($164.38), which make a stunning statement piece for a ladylove or over-pampered Irish setter. Men attending a formal affair or romantic court date will make an attractive entrance in fleur-de-lis cufflinks ($157.18) kissed with accents of 14-karat gold, and a sterling-silver money clip ($88.54) will keep even the most feral of paper benjamins from flying South in the winter.
Watches from Montblanc, Gucci, N.O.A., and more ensure that every minute is spent encrusted in precious metals, and wedding-collection pieces prove that couples who share a love of bling together stay together. Whether buying as a surprise gift, for yourself, or a surprise gift to yourself, Ancona provides fine-faceted fancery fit for any occasion.
