Whether you have nostalgia for your hometown or recently began creating new memories in a new home, we all have locations that hold a special place in our hearts. It could be that pocket of Paris that you and your bestie got lost in for that short moment in time or that corner of Mott where he said “I love you” that you’ll never forget. Locations hold such a strong place in our memories for so many reasons, and now this holiday season you can make them modern heirlooms exclusively on A Jaffe. All you have to do is log onto their site, enter a street address or landmark name, move the map, zoom in/out and reposition the diamond until you reach your desired configuration, confirm and then add to your cart. But don’t check out before adding a special message to the back. Each custom made piece - available in precious metals with diamonds - can be engraved with any location in the world. A diamond marks the spot of a special place.

Here are some ideas we have mapped for your special someone this holiday.

A Jaffe Eats


Take your loved one to a winter wonderland in Gramercy this holiday season. Rolf’s German restaurant will keep everyone’s hearts and stomach’s filled with fine fare, mulled wine, holiday music and ornaments galore for hours on end.

Ice Skating

Be a kid again and hit the rink. But not just any. Go skating in true New York fashion at Trump Wollman Rink in Central Park and take in the city in all its holiday glory.

A Jaffe Cozy

Hot Chocolate

Take a trip across the bridge for a decadent hot chocolate made with the finest ingredients at Jacques Torres in Dumbo. You’ll be dreaming about this one way past the holidays.

The Ballet

Tschaikovsky's beloved melodies have transported many New Yorker’s before us to a magical world where mischievous mice besiege a battalion of toy soldiers, and an onstage blizzard leads to an enchanted Land of Sweets. This year make the Nutcracker at New York City ballet a holiday tradition of your own.
