Dava is a great place in the Hamden Plaza for Jewelry. They have a lot of not so expensive jewelry as well as bauble type jewelry.
Their selection is very eccentric and they have a wide selection of jewelry for all ages and types of people.
They also cater to the hippie generation -- yes, you hippies are not forgotten. They have a bunch of 60's era jewelry as well as incense and oils that you can purchase for reasonable prices.
The shop is a regular size, and the parking is ample. It's located in the Hamden Plaza, so parking shouldn't be an issue.
