Wrapped Up

Make holiday shopping a pleasure at OMO Jewels & Gifts


Good things come in small packages, right? That’s just the case at OMO Jewels & Gifts in Westerly. Owner Joanna Papineau-Allen makes the most of her cozy space, expertly mixing a wide variety of American-made jewelry, clothing, tableware, and gifts, so finding the right present for anyone is a breeze. Wrapping is always free, and the waterside location serves to make any holiday shopping a festive outing rather than an errand.

As the shop name implies, there’s jewelry. Prices range from $20 earrings to gorgeous gemstones set in gold and silver, with the styles ranging from delicate to chunky and everything in between, so you are sure to find just the perfect piece for any occasion at various price points.

OMO stocks everything from bath and body goods to clothing. To keep warm this winter, find fun faux fur neck warmers, scarves, and fingerless gloves. Pair these with your choice of beautiful knit capes and your chosen jewelry to create a great look for the gloomy days. A multitude of handbags in various fabrics and leathers will complement your attire.

For the home, be dazzled by assorted colorful ceramic serving pieces, cutting boards, glassware, and vases, and whimsical items like decorated bird statues and hand-beaded dog brooches. Tip: there’s a bridal registry. Additional accents include candles, interesting wall art, and fanciful globes that seem to spin in mid-air. There even things for babies like cute onesies, plush toys, and books.
