I love jewelry. I mean, what girl doesn’t, right?!? Sparkling gems, precious metals, jewel tones – it all makes the heart beat fast. So enter in my latest boutique obsession, Roseark — gallery meets retail haven stocked full of the most coveted (and perfectly curated, might I add) jewelry and art. Kathy Rose, co-founder and designer of the store's namesake collection, gave me a peek inside her passion for all things beautiful.
Roseark is an enchanting bungalow bringing a calming nature to an otherwise busy West Hollywood street. Hidden behind tall, overgrown greens, there is an allure about this unique, appointment-only shop that captivates as you wait to be buzzed in. Opened in May 2008, Roseark was created by Kathy (formerly from Sunset boutique Kaviar & Kind and winner of Bravo’s Launch My Line series) and her partner, Rick Rose, who hand pick each designer/artist in the store.
With 5,000 sq. ft. to work with, Roseark is made up of five rooms showcasing fine art from the likes of Matthew Heller and Jill Platner, jewelry from a multitude of designers including Karma El-Khalil (featured above), clothing, handbags, the famous Earth shoes (worn by Kate Moss) and so much more. Literally, I circled the shop about five times, completely mesmerized. (Annnd somehow I kept coming back to a stunning Janna Conner white topaz ring – it hurt my heart it was so gorgeous!)
My favorite part – Roseark will curate your personal jewelry box! Bring in your jewels to be reset into a necklace, earrings into a bracelet; whatever it may be, Kathy will turn your heirlooms into “wearlooms.” She is truly a jewelry genius!
