Firenze Jewels’ Jeffrey Levin, together with the New York City 47th Street Business Improvement District announced a relief effort aiding the victims of the earthquake and tsunami that struck Japan on March 11th. The 47th St BID works with businesses in the New York City Diamond District area. They are trying to organize with as many of the 2,600 businesses to donate $1 per sale to the American Red Cross Japanese Earthquake Relief Fund. The relief effort is expected to last until the end of April.
As a major supplier of pearls to the American market and the fourth largest market in the world for American jewelry exports, Japan has played an integral role within the jewelry industry as well as the New York City Diamond District for decades. Our hearts go out to all those affected by the devastating tragedy in Japan and we hope our joint contributions play a small roll in rebuilding their lives and pulling through the many struggles ahead.

Speaking of luxury purchases, most New Yorkers have probably heard by now about NY Governor David Patterson’s controversial tax hike proposal. Part of his plan calls for an additional 5 percent tax on jewelry priced over $20,000. A recent article in the New York Post mentioned that a woman named Lisa shopping in the NY Diamond District was admiring a $48,000 necklace at Firenze Jewels and was concerned about how the proposed tax increase would affect her purchase.
We’d like to take this opportunity to remind our fellow patrons that Firenze Jewels continues to be one of the top places to find the greatest deals on diamond jewelry in New York City and in the world. In fact, many people may not realize that nearly 70 percent of the pieces in our showroom are priced below $5,000 even if most retail elsewhere for double that amount. Please stay tuned for the many changes to come shortly and know that we always warmly welcome your feedback.
