With a store ex­pan­sion at Kather­ine Tess and one-of-a-kind de­signs at Glenn Brad­ford, the East End is shin­ing bright.

NEW ADDITIONS

It’s an ex­cit­ing time at Kather­ine Tess, which has cap­i­tal­ized on its pop­u­lar­ity with a much-awaited ex­pan­sion. A re­cently opened third store in the heart of Southampton’s Main Street joins the brand’s two prior lo­ca­tions. “Sim­i­lar to our store in Westhampton, it has a beach-like aes­thetic that’s in­spired by is­land life on Capri and St. Barth’s,” says Tess. New col­lec­tions from Vanita Rosa, Sun­day St. Tropez, Roberto De­meglio, and Khai Khai are fea­tured along­side a new prod­uct launch with Ital­ian her­itage jew­elry line Spal­lan­zani. Look out for trunk shows from jew­elry brands Oro­ma­lia and Dada Ar­rigoni and Ital­ian fur­rier Suprema. Kather­ine Tess Southampton, 69 Main St., 631-488-4988; kather­inet­ess.com

ALL THE FEELS

With 25 years in the biz, Glenn Brad­ford has a knack for imbuing his pieces with emotional content. “I cre­ate jew­elry with a deeper mean­ing,” he says. Some of his most heart­felt de­signs are the custom cre­ations he makes for clients from their ex­ist­ing pieces. “The deep­est of mean­ings comes when we adapt some­thing that al­ready has a his­tory, us­ing their sen­ti­men­tal things but de­sign­ing it in a style that is all about that re­spec­tive client. Ev­ery jour­ney that I go on re­sults in a one-of-a-kind de­sign that is made for that per­son.” On Au­gust 19, Glenn Brad­ford hosts an Ate­lier Swarovski event in its Southampton shop. 10B Jobs Lane, Southampton, 631-400-9800; 279 Main St., Port Wash­ing­ton, 516-7671600; glennbrad­ford.com
