Metier's street level jewelry salon with its midnight blue walls and artfully painted pastoral wall is a dreamy jewel box for our deeply personal collection of new and antique jewelry and objets d'art.
Mingling estate pieces with modern gems by contemporary masters, our collection is united by a similar ethos of craftsmanship. We are drawn to vintage pieces from the late 1700's to the early 20th century that seduce with sculptural details, unusual cuts, and luscious detail rather than bulk or bombast. Highly sentimental and historical pieces speak volumes to us.
It's not surprising that the modern artisans we favor are also lauded for selecting distinctive gemstones and thoughtfully rendered settings, many of them singular treasures.
In a mass-produced world, we’re drawn, as ever, to those artisans who take the time to imprint their works with a point of view — be it a non-traditional engagement ring of rose-cut diamonds or an opal necklace the color of dawn. Whether worn with torn jeans or a Dries Van Noten jacket, such pieces become part of the identity of the wearer — heirlooms for a new age.
Located on leafy Hayes Street in San Francisco's Hayes Valley where modernist buildings sit cheek-to-jowl with Victorian edifices a stones throw from the gilded dome of City Hall, we adore being in a neighborhood that so artfully echos our own aesthetic. You’ll know us by the large interlocked gold commitment rings hanging above our eggplant hued gate. Please stop by for a visit soon, or chat with us online.
