Cartier

Any luxury jewelry lover knows that receiving Cartier's little red box triggers child-like excitement, every time. Could it be the Love Bracelet? Or how about the Juste un Clou? Regardless, getting something from this iconic institution is a very, very wonderful thing. [Photo]
Founded by former Persimmon shopkeep Julie Schroeder, the 800-square-foot boutique stocks a mix of vintage gems and one-of-a-kind jewelry crafted by independent designers, both local and global. Just a few stunners in stock include a 14k gold ring decked out with tourmaline for $5,800 and dainty fan palm earrings for $110.
