Best of Philly 2008: Jewelry Design (and Re-Design)
1329 Pine Street
Philadelphia, Pennsylvania 19107
If Halloween, that lavish treasure trove of a jewelry store, is eccentric (have you seen the pearl brooch in the shape of a cowboy?), then owner Henri David is downright flamboyant. He answers the phone with a singsongy Trick or treat! He throws a Halloween party every year for 40 years now and invites the entire city. Hes designed jewelry for Elton John, and for crazy Stevie Nicks. The man is friends with John Waters, for Petes sake. But hes also a true talent, and old-school when it comes to honest dealings and customer service. David and his staff have earned our trust and their icon status with quality, beautiful work. Theyll duplicate any design, clean and refurbish your grandmothers hand-me-downs, and work with any budget to make your jewelry at least as memorable as the place it came from.
