Tucked away in a city named after its two man-made lakes, in laid-back, sunny southern California is The Jewelry Box of Lake Forest–a wonderfully smart jewelry store with a 25-year history.  If the title of being one of America’s safest cities doesn’t draw you in, this jewelry store will!  Continually voted best of Orange County several years in a row, this store is easily people’s top choice.  And now, mine too thanks to social media.  I found The Jewelry Box of Lake Forest after being mesmerized by their gorgeous photos posted throughout Facebook & Instagram.  It wasn’t long until they posted something that really caught my attention–an Edwardian diamond ring in an elongated, finger-flattering silhouette.  Before I knew it, I was learning first-hand at how amazing their customer service was as well.  With such a lovely staff made up of caring, knowledgeable people, it is easy to notice the passion behind the store, and where it started from from the beginning.  

Owners Jack and Christine began their journey in the jewelry industry working for a national department store chain.  Both were in regional management positions, but for different parts of the country.  With larger goals in mind, both had visions of owning their own store one day.  Dreams became a reality in 2001 when they opened The Jewelry Box of Lake Forest.  Their successful store has been able to give back, with many special events benefiting Breast Cancer and giving back to the community.  

The inventory runs the gamut, with new fashionable pieces of jewelry and “previously enjoyed,” their take on vintage and antique jewelry.  With new items being added daily, their customers love to stop by frequently and check out what is new to the store.  Other services like appraisals, repair work and restyling old, unwanted jewelry are also their specialty.  If you’re like me, and can’t make it to their store, following their updates online is one sure way of receiving a purple box with their name on it!  Although I do hope to visit some day!
