“I’m Mike D and I get respect/Your cash and your jewelry is what I expect”

Timed to coincide with the Lunar New Year and Valentine’s Day, Chinatown is expecting that its inaugural Jewelry Week makes a splash. While actually running for two weeks – until February 14 – the event aims to revitalize the tight-knit enclave of jewelers in the environs of the lower Bowery.

According to press materials:

Inspired by the success of the inaugural 2012 Chinatown Restaurant Week, local businesses, merchants, and Kaimen Company present Chinatown Jewelry Week 華埠珠寶週, the first of its kind, to showcase the high quality, selection, culture, and history of Manhattan’s oldest jewelry district. This district is home to jewelers of diverse ethnic backgrounds who built their names and reputations in the business across multiple generations,” said lead organizer Julie Huang, Kaimen Company President, and community resident. “With both the Lunar New Year and Valentine’s Day happening just days apart, visitors will fall in love with the rich heritage of this legendary community, the experience of jewelry shopping for ‘Sweetheart Deals,’ and the spectacular pageantry of the Lunar New Year celebrations during the 2013 Chinatown Jewelry Week.

The following jewelry outlets are participating:

195 Dragon Jewelry (195 Canal)
D. National Jewelry (199 Canal)
