Vintage jewelry shop House of Love and Luck just opened up on LA Cienega right next to the new Largo space, bringing with it a focus on costume pieces from 1880-1980. The price points are recession friendly, ranging from $30-$300, most around the $60 mark.
Co-owner Ricki Miller, who cut her teeth as a creative director for a clothing line and as a personal stylist, told Racked: "My philosophy for style, design, and the thought process behind this project is carefully curated pieces of jewelry with an understanding of what style is relevant today." About the boutique name, she explains it comes "from the concept that you are loved to receive jewelry as a gift, and lucky when you get that perfect one of a kind piece for you."
Jared Meisler, owner of Bar Lubitsch and the new Coronet bar opening in January right next to House of Love and Luck, is Miller's partner in the venture. Come January, the boutique will offer in-house vintage jewelry refurbishing and jewelry repair. They also plan to work with designers to showcase their collections in the shop.
Saturday, December 6, there will be an open house from 1pm-6pm with drinks, music, and, of course, shopping. [RackedWire]
