  • Compiled by Lisa Sweetingham, Jennifer Ryan, Bruce Wallin, and Amanda Millin

BOND STREET For those short on time, a trip to Bond Street affords door-to-door shopping at jewelery and watch houses such as Cartier, De Beers, Graff, Tiffany, and Van Cleef & Arpels. “It’s all there in such a small condensed area that if you had the odd $5 million, you could easily spend it.” (MDC, MB, BM) www.bondstreetassociation.com

HATTON GARDEN At this famed jewelry quarter, practically “all the diamonds in London” can be found among more than 55 independent jewelers. Everyone from “businessmen to rock stars” go here for items ranging from “$1,000 to $1 million,” which represent “really good prices on diamonds.” “It’s a nice place to go and investigate.” (MW) www.hatton-garden.net
