    The Greenwich, Conn., shop Simon Teakle Fine Jewelry (www.simonteakle.com) has opened with an impressive selection of antique pieces, including the Chaumet sapphire-and-diamond earrings shown here. The shop carries just one contemporary line: James de Givenchy for Taffin, which has never before been sold outside Givenchy’s salon in New York City. Prior to opening the shop, Teakle was the head of Christie’s U.S. jewelry department. “I look for interesting design,” says Teakle, who carries pieces priced from $500 to more than $500,000. “And I’m not as concerned with signed pieces and names.”
