We'd like to think that every S.F. 'hood has a purpose: Hayes Valley is a must-hit when we want to drop dough on hip threads, and we definitely can't function without our weekly culinary smorgasbord sesh in the Mission. But Nob Hill? That part of town has been reserved for obligatory sight-seeing tours with out-of-town guests and afternoon visits with Anh of 9-to-5 Chic. Until now.
Leave it to Bay Area jewelry designers (you know we only roll with the best) to turn us on to Nob Hill's unexpected, yet pretty stellar style. The sisters behind Kris Nations, a local brand known for using original artwork and recycled materials in their jewelry collections, are now selling one standout bauble inspired by the swanky — and steep! — stomping grounds. Complete with metallic hardware in a range of bright hues, the wonderful "Nob Hill" bracelet will be the VIP at our next arm party.
