We stopped by Eddie Borgo's sale this morning, and we're happy to report that the designer's jewelry is hugely discounted. You'll see a lot of edgy styles, like double rings and cuffs covered in glam spikes. Here the breakdown:
When you get to 204 Elizabeth, walk inside and up the stairs and look for the white buzzer (above the other store's buzzer). Say you're here for the sale, and go up one more short flight to Borgo's space. To the right you'll see necklaces, the center table has bracelets, earrings and rings, and a tray by the register holds $5 items.
All necklaces are $35, which is huge considering most were originally priced between $150 and $400. There are silver, gold, and rose gold options. A simple chain with a pendant goes for $150 at retail, while a bigger gold number is normally sold for $800 (it converts into a bracelet, too). We also saw a few collar styles.
Bracelets (originally $175—$450) are the bulk of the samples. Small bracelets are $20, while larger options, like a chunky chain link style, are $40. The "pyramid" and "cone" bracelets—available in both metal and gemstones—make up most of the stock.
Rings that normally go for $75—$325 are now between $15 (for small styles) and $25 (for more elaborate designs like knuckle dusters and hinged-plate rings). We also saw a spiky hand ring (was $175) and a two-finger ring (was $125).
Earrings are less prominent; all styles are $25. The $5 tray by the register is full of large cuffs (we mean very large), chunky rings and broken or tangled pieces, so purchase at your own discretion. We saw a lot of hook latch cuffs, especially. Things are getting picked over fast, so stop by this afternoon if you can.
