Former civil engineer turned jewelry designer to the stars Miriam Salat opened her eponymous boutique today in the Shops at Columbus Circle in the Time Warner Center. Miriam Salat is known for her boho-chic and international travel-inspired bangles, earrings, necklaces, cuffs and rings priced between $175 to $1875. While her line is carried at Henry Bendel, Nordstrom and Neiman Marcus, the Columbus Circle location is Salat's first U.S. storefront.
Her pieces have been worn by red carpet ready celebrities, such as, Oprah Winfrey, Katy Perry and Jennifer Lopez. Further establishing her celeb-cred, Miriam Salat baubles were also spotted on Lady Gaga during a performance on the last season finale of American Idol (although the earrings may have been obscured by Gaga's gigantic triangle and chain-fringed headpiece) and Sofia Vergara (Gloria Delgado-Pritchett) on the season finale of Modern Family. Just so New York shoppers feel just as special as the famous people, the Columbus Circle boutique will carry exclusive items, such as an ivory scallop necklace and a few bold turquoise pieces (paging Real Housewife of NYC turquoise-loving Countess LuAnn).
