Sangre de mi Sangre
Located just below street level in a stately Beaux-Arts stone building, this subterranean jewelry boutique is a beautiful world. Designer and founder Mariana Villarreal creates pieces that range from the delicate to the divine, with a sensibility that falls somewhere between Tom Binns and Eddie Borgo. (Skulls and Edwardian-era Gothic motifs abound.) Each collection is themed—recent ones have featured bees and flowers—and showcases both precious and semiprecious stones, many sourced from India.
