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.

Michael C. Fina is known for our bridal jewelry, but we also are experts on fashion jewelry. While some jewelry pieces remain classics and will be forever in style, most trends change year to year. We looked to celebrities and to the red carpet to see what’s going to be popular in 2013!
We sat down once again with Richard Wubnig, our manager and jewelry expert, to predict the top jewelry trends for 2013.
1. Emeralds – Pantone has named Emerald Green ( PANTONE 17-5641 Emerald) their Color of the Year for 2013. Pantone describes the color as a “lively, radiant, lush green” and we know that it will be the perfect addition to your wardrobe in 2013. We think that not only emeralds, but rather all green gemstones and hues will be big this year. Emeralds add just that right pop of color that can take a look from average to striking. Some of our favorites are this classic emerald and diamond pendant from Michael C. Fina and these bold yellow gold emerald drop earrings from Penny Preville‘s Leaf Collection.
2. Colored Statement Pieces – Big, bold pieces are all over the red carpet. You want to make a statement when you walk into a room and these pieces will certainly help you do it! These pieces are also perfect for adding that fun pop of color when you are trying to take a more neutral outfit from the office to a dinner date. We’re definitely going to see blues, greens, and pinks take over this year! We suggest trying this striking 18K gold and sterling pendant from Tacori’s City Lights Collection or these elegant 18K yellow gold and moonstone cluster earrings from Temple St. Clair‘s Moonstone Collection.
3. Back in Black – Black stones are going to be big this year, especially black diamonds. This twist on a classic started to become popular in 2012, but will take off in 2013. They contrast white diamonds and this really makes the pieces of jewelry pop! Black is extremely versatile, so women will love this trend because it can dress an outfit up or down depending on your mood. For a girl’s night out, slip on this 18K and sterling black onyx cuff from Tacori’s 18K925 Collection. Trying to impress your date? These 18K white gold black diamond hoops from Penny Preville will do the trick!
4. Personalize It – Personalized jewelry is something you can love now, and it is something that you and your family can love for generations. These personal pieces truly become your own and tell the story of your life. Jewelry from Heather Moore is perfect for marking all the special occasions in your life – births of your children, your anniversary, etc. You can customize every piece and add to it for years to come! Looking for something more simple? Initial pendants from KC Designs can be worn every day and even layered with other necklaces for a bigger look.
“It was a romance that built up the business.” -Rose Fina
We are happy to announce that in February 2013, Michael C. Fina will be taking the next step in our 77-year evolution and will be moving to 500 Park Avenue and 59th Street. The company, originally a silver retailer, was founded in 1935 by Michael C. Fina and Rose Rosenblatt at the corner of Fifth Avenue and 47th Street. The store moved to its current location at 545 Fifth Avenue in 1998.
“Our retail experience is all about making the customer feel like part of our family and with that comes listening to what they want. As a result, we are moving to an exciting shopping area that caters to our core consumer,” said Steven Fina, president of Michael C. Fina. “Our new location will ensure that we continue to provide the best experience, service and products for the next 75 years.”
Still family-owned and operated by the Fina family, Michael C. Fina has spent decades helping New Yorkers celebrate their special moments and milestones – from engagements and weddings, to new homes and babies! Our new location will continue to carry a stunning variety of engagement rings, wedding bands, fine jewelry, tableware, home decor, and baby gifts from the designers you know and love.
We would like to thank all of our many loyal customers throughout the years and we look forward to the many more that will walk through our doors as we continue to grow and evolve in our new home!
