After 22 years in Noe Valley, Yvette Chamberland closed Rose Quartz jewelry in September and moved to Oakland. Reason? "The landlord wouldn't renew my lease, so I was forced to relocate." Presumably the landlord was raising the rent because they don't seem to object to jewelry stores.
Enter The Jewelry Box. 3904 24th St (between Noe St & Sanchez St). Open now, and (natch) having a sale.
Can't confirm what the deal was with the landlord, but we're very happy it's a jewelry store and not yet another storefront with a "Nails/Waxing" neon sign.
