I am looking for AFFORDABLE gift/jewelry shopping. My wife's birthday is coming up in a couple of weeks and all of the stores where I'm staying in the Union Square area seem to be really premium priced. Excellent quality, high end, but I can't afford that.
Suggestions about an area that I can taxi to that would have nice gifts/jewelry (not clothing) that would be of a quality and price that "real people" can afford. Yellow gold is her preference. I don't mind paying hundreds of dollars for the right thing, but can't afford the premium that the high-end name stores sell.
