One of the boutiques that I frequent for some fun, off-beat jewelry is Aaraa Boutique. Located at 408 6th Street in Hoboken, the shop has a beautiful display of jewels and other unique accessories.
The last time I was at Aaraa, the shop’s owner, Neeta, was actually in India buying items for her boutique. I love that all of her merchandise is mostly from India! It makes it such a unique and original Hoboken shop, with a very southeast (but modern!) Asian feel.
Another funky statement piece, similar to one seen at J.Crew [below] (but for less ca$h monay!):
There are also a variety of earrings, in addition to my fave minty roses pictured above. I love studs, but lately I have been enjoying earrings that dangle too, especially when combined with my wavy-haired ombre. I think there’s something to be said for statement pieces like these – totally doable, as long as you keep other jewels at a minimum.
Here are some more earrings from Aaraa’s jewel collection (for around $15 each!):
There are a variety of faboosh and unique cocktail rings displayed as well:
Aaraa is such a cute place to visit, and it’s definitely worth a trip down the side streets of Hoboken. The loft location houses not only these beautiful jewels, but also a variety of home furnishings and other exotic accessories. The staff is always super helpful and friendly when I’m there, and Neeta & Co. will be sure to help you pick out something original!
