Via Fred Leighton's PR team, we get a bit more info on the recently-opened diamond-filled jewelry boutique. First off, the rendering, which makes the shop's double-height ceilings ever apparent. Next, the jewels, which include pieces from the 19th Century, Art Nouveau period, Art Deco, and more from the 20th Century. Specifically pictured here is the 1930's aquamarine and ruby belt necklace by Paul Flato (this is the one that was Mrs. Cole Porter's, who then gave it to Fred Astaire's daughter, Adele) and the 1920's Art Deco rose-patterned diamond and precious gemstone bracelet by Rubel Freres. No price tags included, but we're guessing at least in the six digit range?
