Meandering through shops on Palm Beach’s Worth Avenue may leave some deflated by inflated prices but a visit to Sequin New York, just a few blocks away, may cure the-small-budget-blues. Yes, Virginia, there are bargains in Palm Beach.

New York-based Sequin  is tough to miss with colorful, glitzy-ritzy high-end costume jewelry heaped elegantly on tables visible through their storefront window. Even non-shoppers are lured by the sparkling sight. The best part: prices. With baubles ranging from $15 to $750, few will walk out empty-handed.
Sisters Kim and Linda Renk, owners of Sequin, design jewelry for Badgley Mischka (sold at Neiman Marcus), for Target, Kohl’s, Cache, Nordstrom, other customers and for their own stores (private label). In addition to the shop in Palm Beach, they have two in Newport, Rhode Island.

Palm Beach store manager, Wendy McIlvain, says Sequin also does trunk shows, including an upcoming event in Houston. Stop by and say hello. For a little bit of cash, you can walk out with a piece of Palm Beach elegance.
