In God We Trust
265 Lafayette St., 212-966-9010, SoHo, Manhattan
129 Bedford Ave., 718-384-0700, Williamsburg, Brooklyn
70 Greenpoint Ave., 718-389-3545, Greenpoint, Brooklyn
What started as a small storefront in Williamsburg has expanded over the last eight years into three locations that stock full eponymous jewelry, apparel and accessories collections. Designer and owner Shana Tabor bases all design and production of In God We Trust jewelry in her Greenpoint studio. Tabor has used this standard in stocking like-minded brands with a local-made mind-set. Her designs are rooted in traditional antiques, yet each piece conveys a sense of modernity and individuality, taking shape in hammered gold wedding bands and rope gold molded from real hair braids.
