Ylang Ylang


One of our retail partners, YLANG YLANG shares their story, their favorite local restaurants and the Todd Reed designs on their wish list below. Don’t miss seeing all of our newest designs there on December 5th.
“YLANG YLANG was established in St. Louis in 1985 and is locally owned by Julie Ettinger and her mother Lois Morganstern. We specialize in fine designer jewelry from all over the world, with many exclusive “can’t be found anywhere else” jewelry pieces! YLANG YLANG was located in Plaza Frontenac mall for 29 years but we are excited to say we have moved into our own free standing store in the Colonial Marketplace in Ladue, Missouri last October and could not be happier! Our little house is now home for all of our fabulous jewels!”

“Our new store is located in Ladue. Ladue was established in 1936 and maintains its commitment to premier residential living. You will find our neighborhoods nestled in rolling hills, and quiet lanes. Shops and service oriented businesses are found throughout Ladue and offer the highest quality of goods and services. A family oriented neighborhood with some of the best public and private schools in the state!”

“Locals and visitors alike experience friendly and unique locally owned shopping and dining experiences. Gourmet foods, fashion boutiques and upscale menswear, jewelry stores, European and American antiques, interior design resources and local restaurants are all within reach in the City of Ladue. Whatever you desire you will find it in our neighborhood. Pastaria is my favorite nearby restaurant! It has a few great vegetarian options as well as great wine.”

“Our favorite Todd Reed LOVES this season are the wide bands with scattered white diamonds! We love the simplicity of this band, yet it is so unique! Of course, we would take it in yellow, rose or white gold, mixing metals is one of our favorite looks as well as stacking with our existing jewels. We are
all about layering Todd’s stack rings. I love to wear them with my wedding rings. Such a fresh look. Truly the juxtapose of classic and a bit contemporary.”
