November 2012


Truly, this is the best time of year for us! Our friends and consignors are cleaning out their overflowing closets in their various homes and sending us shipments that arrive almost daily! We have been fortunate to take in some extraordinary handbags-casual, evening as well as classic styles.


Hermes Herbag MM
Hermes Plume Bag


 With fall in full swing, it's time once again to lean toward our tried  and true favorites...suede, crocodile and polished leathers all in the rich, earthy tones of harvest time.



 Nothing is greater than having a "bag for everything" that one can take

from the office to weekend to running around town with. These styles combine

Ferragamo Handbag

fashion with function and frankly, we choose one or two each year and they are our "go-to bags"! While all fashionistas have special bags for different events, it's these casual workhorses that get us through the day!



Lana Marks Croc

 While many times one covets clutches for evening wear,

consider  the beauty of a brass handled crocodile evening bag for a change. There are a vast array of these types of bags that make a change from the typical jeweled clutch which will gift you  with a"different"look!


Jeweled Faberge Egg Style Bag
Judith Leiber

  Of course, that is not to minimize the importance and elegance of the minaudiere to compliment one's perfect black tie occasion! It is with delight that we offer a great variety of jeweled evening pieces.  Consider this magnificent Judith Leiber with the structured, domed top or the likewise gorgeous classic and collectable Faberge Egg-style beauty!

"Beautiful in Burberry"
Nothing says Fall like wrapping a stunning silk scarf around your neck or draping it over your shoulders!  We have just received a wonderful selection of scarves that come from fashion houses such as Hermes, Chanel Burberry, Valentino, Givenchy, Gucci, Armani and more!
"Handsome in Hermes"



From florals,equestrian prints, geometrics, classical jeweled motifs, and animal designs, we have an abundance of pristine silk beauties that will set your heart a-flutter.



We are so fortunate to be offering the most marvelous gems from

Amazing in Amethyst

friends in Beverly Hills.  These beautiful pieces range from modern to classic to offbeat and showcase the most wonderful quality of stones and workmanship we have seen in a long time.


Set of Azurite

 This collection, put together so that several pieces match to make sets, emphasizes style and  substance.  For instance, see how lovely the azurite fish brooch set in 18K gold is offset by the double link bracelets in lapis and 14k gold.

Stunning Set of Amethyst and Aquamarine


Marvel at the workmanship of this amethyst and aquamarine   bracelet with round ruby accents set in 18KT white gold.With the matching earrings one would have a simply stunning set!


Dripping In Diamonds

Or wonder at the perfection and craft involved in designing these diamond drop earrings--something that can dress up or down any outfit!


Look for more of this top caliber jewelry during season!  Now there's a reason to celebrate!



Classic Collections is so proud to once again feature Maria  Hamilton and her hand-made, one of a kind custom jewelry designs!


This talented (winner National Best New Jewelry Designer Award 2011) local designer, Maria Hamilton, has become an inspiration with her unique and ultra-current pieces.  Born in Caracas, Maria has taken her talent to new levels with her new Fall Collection that is currently debuting at Classic Collections.  


Turquoise and Mother of Pearl

 Using very large and uniquely cut and shaped gems such as rubies, pink and white sapphires, amatrine, green amethyst, morganite, smoky quartz, rutilated quartz and unusual various shades of topaz, citrine and amethyst, many of these designs are set in sterling silver or 14 KT gold.  Maria's fertile imagination

Stingray Cuff With Sapphires

combines materials that are so varied that they immediately catch your eye.  For instance, her stingray cuff embellished  with multiple sapphires. 


Rubies and Gold


More pieces will be available prior to the holidays, so come on in and stake your claim EARLY.  Prices for most pieces range between $995 and $2,500 with special, very large stone sparklers tipping in at $9,950.  Maria will also size rings at no charge for our customers. 


The style pendulum has swung once again to leather for the

Carolina Herrera Jacket

upcoming season. One simply cannot open any fashion magazine without seeing leather looks from all of the top designers!


Prada Jacket

 Not to worry, Classic Collections has the same marvelous and sumptuous leather fashions that are so much more affordable! Consider the magnificent Caroline Herrera dusty pink jacket adorned with perfect leather rosettes or the classic, slimming leather dress/coat from Ralph Lauren. We have luxurious leathers from Ferragamo, Chloe, Akris, Prada and many more top fashion houses! So come on in while they last!

Yep, it's almost that time of year again when we receive those

New Furs Arriving Shortly!

fabulous new furs from our friends at Skaneateles Furs.  What will our bounty be this year?  We are excitedly awaiting this shipment...sable, beaver, mink, fox, chinchilla, rabbit,  and more in coats, jackets, shawls, hats, mittens and gloves and other marvelous accessories!  We are also fortunate to have some very unique pieces from consignors that we just couldn't pass up, so be sure to stop in and get first choice of all of these new and unique pieces!
