Dorfman Jewelers

This is your parents’ jeweler—in fact, it might even be your grandparents’. Dorfman is still the kind of place where you go for serious baubles with a touch of high drama, plus subtle and sophisticated pieces from Bulgari, Patek Philippe, and Van Cleef & Arpels. Expect service of the old-school variety: classy and courteous.
