Something Blue, Something Beautiful

“Blue moonstones are magical and particularly flattering.”

~Temple St. Clair

 

Your “something blue” on your wedding day should always be something beautiful.  A bride should be able to create a look that is unique to her and Temple St. Clair’s exquisite Royal Blue Moonstone pieces are the perfect accessories for any wedding day look.

The ancient Romans believed that the luminescent Moonstone was formed out of moonlight and could arm the wearer with prophetic powers during a full moon.  Temple’s signature stone is the Royal Blue Moonstone.  These beautifully cut, high domed Blue Moonstones are of a remarkable quality and are known for their beautiful flash of light.

With their subtle blue color and romantic inspiration, these pieces of jewelry can be worn as part of your bridal look and for all the days after.

 

To learn more about Temple St. Clair and the inspiration behind her pieces, read our interview.  Temple’s fashion and bridal designs are available at Michael C. Fina.

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.
