Mad Men: The End of an Era

One of televisions most beloved shows is coming to an end this week, with Mad Men playing out it’s finale on May 17th. The wildly popular AMC show offers a glimpse into the past in the most dramatic fashion possible. Set in the 1960’s and 70’s, Mad Men takes a look at the advertising industry in New York City, focusing on the life and career of Don Draper.

The beloved show has inspired a surge in popularity of 60’s and 70’s style in both fashion and décor. We’ve curated this list to help you bring the iconic style into your own home so that you can get a taste of all the glamour of the era. The drama, though? You’ll have to supply that yourself.

Featured Fine Jewelry Designer: Tacori

Michael C. Fina is home to many fine jewelry designers, bridal and fashion alike. We carry the largest selection of Tacori jewels in NYC. Tacori creates both bridal and fashion jewelry, made up of a proud family tradition, passed on through multiple generations.

The crescent silhouette is Tacori’s signature design component, interlocking half-moon arcs which provide windows of light to reflect the brilliance of the diamonds placed within. Every single Tacori piece is handcrafted with extraordinary care by their artisans in California. The stunning beauty and intricacy of each piece of Tacori jewelry is the result of an uncompromising passion for artisanship.

Come Visit Us On Park!

Taking the next step in its 77-year evolution as a family-owned and operated retail destination, Michael C. Fina has moved to 500 Park Avenue.  Previously located at Fifth Avenue and 45th Street, the company that began in 1935 as a silver merchant is now celebrated for its unique collection of engagement rings, wedding bands, and its wedding registry.

 

“We’ve set the tables of clients’ grandparents, their parents, and now them.  Our store spans three generations and so do our clients.  We’ve become an icon to New Yorkers when they are getting married,” said Steven Fina, President, Michael C. Fina.  “We’ve become part of families’ traditions, and not many companies can say that, especially retailers in Manhattan.”

 

According to Mr. Fina, many similar businesses have closed in recent years while Michael C. Fina has continued to grow and evolve.  Couples, including first families and royalty, have been choosing its registry programs for decades, due to the concierge-level service and the exclusive designers offered, including Hermes, Bernardaud, Christofle, and Saint-Louis Crystal.  Michael C. Fina’s Ring Gallery houses the largest selection of engagement rings and wedding bands on the East Coast from top design houses such as Tacori, Hearts On Fire, Mark Patterson, and Michael B.  Classic and elegant jewelry pieces from designers like Temple St. Clair and Mikimoto are also showcased.

 

As the company continues to help New Yorkers build their own distinctive lifestyles, its new location in an upscale Park Avenue shopping area ensures that the company will continue its evolution for many future generations.
