So you can find the basics you need, the shoes you want, and the men's jewelry you'd like to try in Brickell. But what about jewelry? Allow us to introduce you to Tarbay, a jewelry brand hand-made in Venezuela that features semi-precious stones, pearls and intricate materials.
The brand was established in 2002 by sister duo Ana Sofia and Marta Tarbay and is currently sold online and at individual kiosks at Dadeland and International Mall in the United States. It does have numerous locations throughout South America and even Spain, however this Brickell boutique is its first standalone store in the U.S.
What makes Tarbay unique is the craftsmanship behind its gems. No two are alike, and that's because each piece of jewelry is hand-crafted on Margarita Island off the coast of Venezuela. There are dainty necklaces, intricately twisted rings, bold or delicate cuffs, and extravagantly weaved earrings. The majority of the pieces you'll find here are under $100, although the brand's most high-end goods can go all the way up to $3000.
There are also shoes and handbags, so you basically have all your accessories grounds covered.
