Unlike giving the gift of macaroni salad, giving the gift of jewelry promises a long-lasting testament of affection that won’t leak mayonnaise when stashed under a hat. Find a token of love you can’t digest with today’s Groupon: for $29, you get $70 worth of jewelry at Codi the Boutique, with locations in Ladue and Chesterfield.
At Codi the Boutique, head jewelry designer and boutique owner Courtney Hopson supplies funky accessories and trendy gifts to fashionistas of all ages amid posh confines. Necklaces feature fetching designs such as a glimmering fleur-de-lis ($85) and garnish each décolletage with charms of gold, silver, and crystal. Instead of sporting garish, neck-tied license plates, jewelry sets pair flirty daisy drop lobe studs and other designs with matching Swarovski crystal necklaces, while separates allow sparkle seekers to mix and match their fetching finery. Anchor ears with a pair of golden leaf earrings ($45), or slither wrists into a pearly bracelet ($125). Plush armchairs provide onlookers a seated vantage point from which to admire the elaborate décor and eye a shimmering necklace fit to floss Zeus’s teeth.
