I can't even begin to explain how excited I was to visit Metier in San Francisco on my #JewelryRoadTrip?! It was childhood relived, where I couldn't sleep the night before--so those bags under my eyes are true life, no photoshop people. I had met Sheri about two years ago at the epic antique jewelry show in Miami...and then finally met Trina the following year (as in, a month ago) at the same show. However, prior to that I had admired their aesthetic and overall style since I first laid eyes on their website--back when jewelry was just a very small portion of their store, which carried mostly high end fashion (think, Dries van Noten and Isabel Marant). I even remember coveting a pair of Current Elliott jeans from their website, only to see them sell out in a matter of days!

Sheri and Trina have an edge to what they are doing, whether it was with clothing or jewelry--they knew how to style it, how to take immensely appealing photos, and make customers want to buy what they have to offer! When the store closed its doors back in 2012, everyone was devastated--but one thing that stayed with them was customers' enthusiasm for the jewelry they sold. And as a matter of fact, the duo's love for jewelry, especially the antique and estate pieces, had become an awesome passion which lucky for us, they decided to stick with! They reopened their doors, this time in a new location--Hayes Valley--with a focus on jewelry, some accessories, antiques and curiosities. Their taste in all things covetable is stronger than ever and I would measure their number of items desired per square foot at a record-breaking high. 

As expected, the neighborhood Metier is located in reflects what the store feels like and is all about. Right down to the double-hung door, the enchanting deep blue walls with gold leafing, to the decor (I'm looking at you, stuffed pheasant)--the details were all there to convince any visitor that they have in fact walked into a real life jewelry box. We've rearranged the jewelry cases slightly for photography purposes, so some photos may not reflect the true arrangement of everything. I wanted to get in deep with my camera and shoot the stills and vignettes that Sheri and Trina style within the glass jewelry cases, because these are some of the best I've seen!  Each piece is placed with great care, has a story to tell and beckons you to become a part of that story. I love the new designer pieces (like BCE Jewelry, Gabriella Kiss, Marla Aaron) they've curated for Metier because they mix extremely well with all the antique and vintage. 

I had such a wonderful time playing with the incredible pieces of Metier and sadly didn't want to leave! It was awesome to spend some time with Trina and Sheri, as we visited 20th Century Cafe afterward, which is their favorite little chill spot and absolutely adorable. I highly recommend that as your day trip if visiting San Francisco--check out Metier for a few hours and then walk over to 20th Century Cafe for lunch. Best day ever.
