I’ve lived in Fairfield, New Jersey just about all my life. I grew up here and now I’m raising my children here. With that said Fairfield was never really known for its retail locations. We don’t have a “center of town” so brick and mortars don’t always have it so easy in town. Whenever I’m looking for a cute unique gift for my friends or family I usually head down to Bloomfield Ave to one of the boutiques. I can’t believe I’ve been passing Fairfield’s hidden gem all this time (no pun intended)…
Jules Fine Jewelry, located at 435 Hollywood Avenue, Suite 13 ( same complex as Century 21 and Manhattan Bagel) I’ve passed it many times but never thought of stopping in for gifts, I assumed it was only fine jewelry. I was mistaken and I’ve been missing out. The store is adorable inside from adorable little teacher gifts, to the cute bracelets you can buy for your best friends birthday or buckle right down to a custom made engagement ring.
I had the wonderful opportunity to meet with the lovely owner and talented jewelry designer Michelle Gabriel. Michelle began working in the industry in 1993 and opened her first jewelry store in 1999 with a primary focus on custom designs and bridal jewelry. Now you can find Michelle at her New York Diamond district showroom located at 580 5th Avenue 5th fl or right here in North Jersey, she combines a flair for creating unique and exquisite pieces with the proficiency of an accomplished jeweler who understands the importance of providing outstanding quality at fair prices.
The custom bridal designs are truly a work of art. She has a unique creative flair that she can take your thoughts and create something fabulous and one of a kind for you. My favorite part about the bridal experience at Jules is if you purchase your weddings rings there, Jules will style the bride on her wedding day with borrowed bling. How awesome is that?!?!
You can also bring any old jewelry you may have that is out of style or your just not wearing or maybe you have an old broach you inherited etc. You can bring those pieces in and Michelle can recreate something new and spectacular from it. Why have jewelry sitting there might as well put it to use. If you don’t want her to customize something special with it she also buys gold.
As I said before Jules also carries some adorable gifts, accessories and everyday jewelry. You can find a gift in this store from $25 to $25,000. There is something for everyone.
