C'est Magnifique is a New York institution. Stores come and go, trends fade over time, but this West Village staple has remained true to its roots since its opening in 1959. It's a jewelry addict's paradise; crazy gothic silver rings, turquoise cuffs, Tuareg imports, rhinestones, crystals, skulls, some really impressive antiques, and so much more. Some pieces are made from molds that are over 20 years old, as well as new items that always seem to appear. C'est Mag is a family business, with loyal customers and devoted followers. A piece from here will solicit a lot of "Where did you get that?" and impressed faces. In a fashion climate that favors looking like an effortless "BAD-ASS", the men in the Albrizio family could probably give a lesson. In addition to having amazing merchandise, the pricing is highly reasonable. You might be compelled to grab several items. Here is a list of famous people that feel similarly:

Madonna - Jimi Hendrix - Bob Dylan - Jerry Garcia & Bob Weir - Robert Danero - Micky Rourke - Johnny Depp - Iggy Pop - Jim Jarmush - The Ramones - Matt Dillon - Debi Mazar - Josh Lucus - Patti Smith - Ralph Lauren - Indian Larry - Lenny Kravitz & Lisa Bonet - Axel Rose - David Byrne - Mike Myers - Stephen King - Tony Benett - Motörhead - Thrill Kill Cult - The Blasters - Beat Farmers - David McCallum (Man from U.N.C.L.E.) - Bette Midler - Cher - Carly Simon - Susan Sarandon - Gregory Hines - Marianne Faithfull - Teri Garr - Vernon Reed - Halley Berry - Lil' Kim - Drea de Matteo - Janeane Garofalo - Dean Winters - Handsome Dick Manatoba - Patrick Stewart

Hide your face under a hat to hide from that heat and head on over!
