The Williamsburg jewelry shop, Catbird, is like a 19th-century Parisian closet; lined with striped wallpaper, lit by delicate chandeliers, and filled with an assortment of girlish treasures. Here you’ll find highly-wearable jewelry that’s big on charm, yet subtle enough for everyday. Catbird is known for its delicately-styled rings; ranging from vintage-inspired wedding collections to bands intended for stacking or accented with shapes like an anchor, heart, or typographic initial. The jewelry collections are produced by New York-based designers who craft with the edgy girl in mind and work only with recycled and fair trade materials.
This shop is also a good place to look to for that perfect Brooklyn souvenir. For fun, inexpensive take-aways, consider the Rooftop Saturday Candle ($38), cat-shaped ring dish ($22), or Catbird Tote ($10). And for the gifter, they also carry a nice selection of retro letterpres
s greeting cards.
