My next installation for Christmas 2015 Holiday Windows is all about the jewels. Fifth Avenue is home to the biggest and best jewelry boutiques in the world. Hanging above the intersection of Fifth Avenue and 57th Street is the huge glowing snowflake that's become a holiday tradition in the city. The UNICEF Snowflake, is a 3,300 pound, 28-foot ornament made up of 16,000 hand-cut Baccarat crystals. The ornament is a beacon of hope, peace, and compassion for children everywhere.
Let's look at the displays of Christmas Tradition and a Yuletide Spirit of Sparkle....
Tiffany & Co. -- 727 Fifth Avenue
A luxury winter wonderland in 19th century fashion. Every window has a miniature scene; white gates open a tree covered in Tiffany designs, porcelain cherubs in a winter wonderland, an ornate bow bridge with glistening timepiece below, a sleigh filled with jewels, a sweeping staircase covered with little blue boxes, and a beautiful stag covered with jewels. These windows are spectacular and decadent.
Chopard -- 709 Madison Avenue
Graff -- 710 Madison Avenue
Buccellati -- 714 Madison Avenue
Paul Morelli -- 895 Madison Avenue
Check out any or all of these stores for timeless gifts for every wish. Ornate and classic, these shops never disappoint.
Happy Holidays and Happy Shopping!
