The Noir sample sale kicked off yesterday at 350 West 39th Street, where select pieces of jewelry were priced as low as just $10. The sale includes the brand's signature rings, bracelets, and necklaces, as well as cuff links and belts. The lower priced items are all on the left side of the showroom, each placed in a plastic bag inside bins marked with their price.
Be warned, though: Although it's all very organized, the constant sifting of eager shoppers leaves room for error, so you may want to double check the prices before you pay. The items in these bins range from gold cuffs to exotic funky bangles and charms. There's also a nearby bin filled with belts starting at $10, which includes a lot of bright colors and patterns, gold prints, studs, and black.
As you head toward the other side of the room, you'll find a display of Neon Jaipur necklaces for $75, along with matching earrings ranging from $45 to $75. Nearby, you'll find bracelets in black and gold ($45 to $80), and bright Seed Bead bracelets and necklaces for $35 and $125.
Looking for cufflinks? Pave ones are $75, and non-pave are $50. While you're at it, have a look at the Noir for Lamb collection, like bracelets from $50 to $75.
A few things to keep in mind: When you arrive at the sale, be sure to head to the fifth floor, since there's only a written sign directing people to the sale. Also, note that 10% of the proceeds will be donated to Hurricane Sandy Relief funds, so each and every pyramid ring and studded necklace you purchase will benefit a good cause.—Talia Aroshas
