New York's famous Diamond District is home to more than 2,000 independent diamond and jewelry dealers, a prime spot for buying diamonds, exquisite pieces of jewelry, gemstones and fancy watches. Situated on West 47th Street between Fifth and the Avenue of the America's, this narrow strip is a one stop shop for jewelry for him and for her. Browse window displays filled with stunning pieces and note that there are big bargains to be had here, sometimes as much as 50% off similar items in department stores and chain jewelry stores. Haggle hard to ensure the biggest savings. Many items can be offered at discount prices because they are sold close to where the diamonds are cut and the rings, necklaces, bracelets and earrings are manufactured. While you are enjoying your time in the Diamond District admiring the stunning displays, go down Seventh Avenue. This is known as "Fashion Avenue" for being the epicenter of the city's garment and fashion industry. Look at the white-and-granite markers embedded along the avenue, the so-called Fashion Center Walk of Fame. They honor some of the biggest names in fashion who have helped make New York a global fashion capital. Among the designers to have been recognized in this way are Bill Blass, Ralph Lauren, Calvin Klein and Claire McCardell.
