Anytime I get asked, “Of all your travels so far, which store takes your breath away the most?” I always immediately think of Lang Antiques in San Francisco! This store easily takes the cake for so many reasons, number one being SO MANY JEWELS…although I’ll never say too many–since you can never have too much of a good thing. Lang Antiques was the first store visit I ever did, when the very beginnings of my idea of doing a “Jewelry Road Trip,” were being formed. I can’t believe that was six years ago! It is quite humbling to realize that Suzanne, co-owner of Lang Antiques, was eager to show me her store and graciously teach and encourage me at such an early point in my career. She is just as enthusiastic today as she was six years ago, and between the both of us, a lot has changed!
The main change for Lang Antiques since my first visit six years ago–location! A totally new store, although it moved only two doors down from its original spot, the space is much larger and has a whole new look. After checking out all my photos from my recent visit (above) it is neat to compare with my visit six years ago from this blog post. Once you compare the two, you will also notice another change–no more sterling silver holloware. Lang Antiques has turned their focus totally on antique and estate jewelry, and their jaw-dropping inventory and selection is a true testament to that. Just as much as Lang Antiques likes to sell jewelry, they also love to buy. Lucky for us, those who don’t live in San Francisco get to experience their store online, which is consistently updated with “New Arrivals.” I appreciate an antique jewelry store who is diligent in keeping up with inventory and constantly bringing new pieces to their website. Lang Antiques’ website has also been a favorite of mine to browse, anytime of the day! It is also very educational and helps to brush up on learning pricing and identifying gemstones and eras.
I hope you enjoy the many photos we took from our Lang Antiques visit–there were so many favorites and not enough time in a day to try everything on! I was bowled over quite a few times with some of the pieces. If you’re searching for a really special piece or a significant piece of jewelry to commemorate an occasion, Lang Antiques WILL have it! If you’re looking for an antique engagement ring or wedding band–or even some jewels to wear on your wedding day, Lang Antiques has such an amazing selection. If you’re saving for a “holy grail” piece–I bet Lang Antiques will have it! My “holy grail” piece from Lang’s is my moonstone and sapphire cluster ring, often worn in Instagram photos. I will treasure it forever! Special thanks to Suzanne for having me again–this time I won’t go six years before visiting again! And also to Nicole who handles all of Lang Antiques’ marketing and social media as Marketing Manager, it was awesome to meet you!
