New York City celebrated Fashion’s Night Out last Thursday, a night dedicated to after-hours shopping where consumers, designers, models, fashion editors and celebrities take to the streets--and their favorite stores--to enjoy champagne, exclusive events and shopping.

Things were popping downtown at Greenwich Jewelers, and it wasn’t just due to the delicious cake “pops,” lollipop–shaped pieces of cake on a stick, and champagne they had to offer guests.



Greenwich Jewelers was a popular stop for shoppers on Fashion’s Night Out.



Guests were greeted with delicious cake “pops” at the store.

Among the usual assortment of gorgeous and eye-catching jewelry in the store was a limited- edition sterling silver and 14-karat gold aquamarine and vintage Tibetan tribal charm necklace, made by designer Melissa Joy Manning.




The Tibetan tribal charm, Manning explained, is actually a very, very old bird claw that was used ceremoniously, giving the necklace a true one-of-a-kind factor.

Elsewhere in the city, timepiece brand Movado hosted “Artist’s Night” in the Movado boutique at Rockefeller Center, collaborating with the School of Visual Arts to allow emerging student artists to create original works of art live in the store during the evening’s festivities.

The artists were asked to develop an artistic concept that inherently explored the passage of time. Meanwhile, guests perused the busy store, checking out timepieces including the brand’s newest addition to the series, the limited-edition Movado Bold by Chris Benz.
