People typically head to the Met store for unique and beautiful gifts. They specialise in crafting stunning jewellery replicas inspired by history. You'll discover pieces resembling Egyptian history, the German Renaissance, Russian Imperial pieces, Ancient Greece, Tibet and many more. All types of jewellery are available, including earrings, necklaces, pendants, pins, rings, cuffs, clip-ons, bangles, timepieces and much more. Many items are gold plated, but you will also discover solid gold pieces, silver, pearls and gemstones. It's not just for women either; men will love their range of watches and their impressive stone, bronze and marble sculptures.

The Met Shop really is a great place for gift shopping; the only downside is that you will want to spend all your money on yourself. You'll find a huge range of children's educational games, books and puzzles. They also sell adults' apparel and accessories such as artsy shawls and neckties, artist themed umbrellas, beautiful stationery sets, tote bags and much more.

The store itself is a joy to shop in, with so many dazzling items it is easy to spend a lot of time dreaming about all the things you want to buy. The staff are always helpful and friendly, which makes the experience that bit more pleasant.

Price wise, The Met Shop is not cheap. Expect to pay over $100 for a necklace or beautiful set of earrings. The pieces are great quality and will last a long time, so it is worth the money. It is also important to note that these pieces are unique; you won't find these designs in your average jewellery store. Keep an eye out for a sale on their website. You can shop in their online store too; it's free shipping for orders over $100.
