Los Angeles has more stores than anyone could physically tackle, but somehow we always keep returning to the usual suspects. To break out of the rut, we've asked some local shopping and fashion gurus to provide their hidden retail gems—those unique stores around LA that we might not all know about. Cue the Beatles: We're about to get a little help from our friends.

Cali-based brunette bombshell Jamie Chung began her acting career with a role in a reality show and has since stolen our hearts with big screen appearances in blockbusters like The Hangover and Grown Ups. Aside from being an all around sweetheart, the stunner is also quite the fashionista. Showing some love to LA labels like Gypsy O5, Lucca Couture and Vanessa Mooney, Chung documents her stylish ensembles, scenic travels and what she's grubbin' on her new must-click lifestyle blog What The Chung?. Given that the down-to-earth jewel-loving lady is truly one-of-a-kind, it comes to no surprise that she prefers her jewelry to be special, too. When she's looking for a meaningful gem she heads to this charming jewelry boutique on West 3rd to add handcrafted pieces to her collection.
Pyrrah on West 3rd has cool edgy jewelry made from vintage 19th Century wax seals that make for a unique gift. Each one comes with a card that describes what the image symbolizes.
