Allison Neumann, Retail Jeweler, Fine Jewelry Designer,
and President & CEO of Allison Neumann,
is pleased to announce
the opening of her flagship boutique
at: 861 6th Avenue, Suite 614, San Diego, CA 92101.
The company held a grand opening event on Saturday, November 8, 2014, which welcomed over 120 jewelry-lovers and industry insiders from the San Diego area and beyond, to preview and purchase the latest designs including her “River Rock” collection, featuring rough sapphires.
Located in San Diego’s historic and vibrant Gaslamp District, the 400-square-foot showroom and boutique presented Allison Neumann’s newest collection, “River Rock”, as well as her classic collections, including gold and sterling silver, diamond and gemstone designs for both women and men, as well as limited edition fine jewelry, special one-of-a-kind designs, engagement rings, and wedding bands. The boutique also showcased other estate and contemporary jewelry lines, accessories and gifts.
Allison Neumann hosted small bites and desserts from restaurant, The French Gourmet, and champagne by Bon Affair for those who came to support the launch of the new flagship boutique. In the midst of perusing the lovely boutique and all of its exquisite pieces, attendees had the perfect opportunity to pose for the camera in front of the red carpet’s step and repeat.
The boutique’s interior décor, designed by renowned San Diego commercial and residential interior designer, Donna Taylor, was largely influenced by Neumann’s own organic fine jewelry designs. Wood grain flooring and “barn door” style cabinets are mixed with modern elements, such as raw steel counters and high gloss white jewelry cases. “The juxtaposition between rustic and refined resonates with my design aesthetic, and creates for a very warm, elegant environment,” states Neumann. Adding to its elegance, Neumann has a crystal
chandelier alongside six-foot beveled mirrors, illuminating the boutique’s design and sophistication.
“The grand opening event was a great success. I’m so grateful to have been received so well by each guest that attended. With such amazing accolades on the new boutique as well as the jewelry, I’m excited to meet the achievements Allison Neumann will encounter in the future,” states Neumann. “This is an enormous step in our journey – Can’t wait to encounter the paths we cross next.”
