Facets brings one-of-a-kind men’s jewelry designs to Limelight marketplace

August 2010

Facets, a nest egg for exclusive men’s jewelry, has opened its first Manhattan outpost in Limelight Marketplace. This debut Manhattan storefront will combine the passion for unique and beautiful art with an intimate boutique style of personalized service and one-of-kind custom pieces of jewelry, wedding bands and engagement rings.

Originally introduced in 2001, Facets opened its doors in the Park Slope neighborhood of New York. The intimate boutique continues to invent pieces of organic beauty by creating custom jewelry designs for the discriminating client. The designs feature hand-picked gemstones and one-of-a kind hand-crafted pieces. Fine jewelry spans from antique Emerald and Diamond pieces circa 1920 to award-winning designers.

Facets is internationally recognized by customers for its outstanding collection of timeless brands and luxury jewelry. The new store will display over 100 distinct designers from all over the world including: Kurilla Design, Gene Davidov, Ted Rossi, Licia Atelier, Mia Lara, Annie Moran, David Tishbi, Yvone Christa, Jonathan Mondesir, Ithil, Natalie Frigo, Robindira Unsworth.

The brainchild of fashion retailer Jack Menashe, Limelight Marketplace has transformed a historic 163-year-old venue into a three-story “festival of shops,” with elaborate facades and varied designs that invoke the feeling of a stroll down a marvelous European street.

Limelight Marketplace welcomes innovative retailers and entrepreneurs, providing a unique “turn-key” solution for start-ups and established brands looking for a presence in the New York City retail market.

“To have Facets join Limelight Marketplace is an extension of our innovative shopping haven,” says President Jack Menashe. “Their jewelry pieces have an ornate quality that illustrates my overall vision for Limelight. We look forward to collaborating with their team.”

Limelight Marketplace is located at 656 Avenue of the Americas at 20th Street, and is open Monday-Saturday from 10AM-9PM, and Sunday from 11AM-8PM, with the restaurant spaces remaining open later.
