Investment Alert: Geoffrey Good Jewelry

So, you've just dropped some major greens on a slammin' Vena Cava dress and an awesome pair of Alexander Wang booties to match. With your wallet screaming for a serious replenishment from the nearest ATM, you've probably given up on scoring new jewelry to complete your look. Here's where Brooklyn dweller Geoffrey Good comes in. The local jeweler just launched a new fall '10 collection that's more affordable than his runway collaborations with both of the above designers (did we mention that his wifey is head of production at Vena Cava?) without sacrificing any high-end aesthetics. His wares are perfecto for the downtown-chic girl that is not afraid to step outside the mainstream gem-trend. Crafted out of chain-linked silver, exotic woods, and elaborate ebony, the FIT graduate's creations mash up natural materials with unnatural architectural restraints. It's only fitting then that Good has drawn inspiration from man-made hexagonal shapes as well as his own personal travels—think pieces that reflect the decorative art forms of Africa, Europe, and the Far East. While $250 isn't necessarily pocket change for the frugalista, Good's use of super luxe materials means that your money will be well invested in necklaces, rings, and earrings that you can certainly pass on to the next generation. And, because his higher-end line has offerings that sell for literally millions, we think you're getting a pretty "good" deal.
Wanna know more? Well, natch, we're giving you a ring-side seat. Good is inviting you to come celebrate the opening of his new studio this Thursday, July 29 from 5-9p.m. If you've never peeped Gowanus, now's your chance— the workshop is previewing all the items from the new line. So, RSVP to this insider-only event by calling 718-499-2090 or email for address and entry password.
