Asprey Boutique Brings Celebrity Glamour to Downtown Boston

Posted July 30, 2013 by Kara Weymouth in Downtown Boston

For Bostonians with a taste for luxury, The Ritz-Carlton has long been a beacon of style downtown. This spring, a bit of celebrity glamour joined the mix with the arrival of the Asprey boutique in the Ritz-Carlton lobby. The iconic British house has been among the go-to sources for the world’s finest jewelry, home pieces and leathers for royalty and celebrities since 1781. As the official sponsor for international events like the British Academy Film Awards, Asprey pieces have been worn on and off the red carpet by celebrities such as Angelina Jolie, Emma Watson, Colin Firth, and Carey Mulligan. Now, with the opening of one of their few shops this side of the Atlantic, Asprey is giving downtown Boston their stylish stamp of approval.

Movies like The Great Gatsby have brought the 1920s roaring back to the forefront of fashion. Embracing this trend, the Asprey boutique in Boston boasts a wide array of art deco pieces for women, such as the Daisy Heritage Drop Diamond Earrings and the Diamond Feather Bracelet — perfect for an evening out at the downtown speakeasy Stoddard’s Food & Ale. Any elegant gentleman wouldn’t mind dressing up with Asprey’s discreetly decadent Sapphire & Diamond Cufflinks (a favorite of Samuel L. Jackson) as he heads off to the office.

Diamonds and other precious gems always add a touch of sophistication, whether you live in suits fit for the Financial District or a little black dress for nights at the Opera House. Planning more red carpet and gala appearances than Marilyn Riseman this summer? Remember to take note of Dame Helen Mirren’s understated but glamorous approach to accessories at this year’s BAFTA awards in London. Pairing Asprey’s drop earrings with an oversize ring rather than a necklace will keep the social spotlight on you every night!

Of course, the Asprey boutique is more than just jewelry. If you’re hosting a roof deck soiree, make sure to pick up Asprey’s classic backgammon set, as the low-key game pairs perfectly with a summer sunset and cocktails. Impress your martini-connoisseur guest by serving up drinks with one of Asprey’s colorful Retro Cocktail Shakers. It also makes the perfect hostess gift!

So the next time you pop on your Louboutins, take a trip down to 10 Avery Street. You’ll feel right at home, I promise.
