After negotiations with landlord turn sour, jeweler to consider another location in the area.

Black, Starr & Frost has closed its location in Newport Beach, CA, company chairman Alfredo Molina announced in a statement. The decision to close the store came after the jeweler was unable to negotiate a lease renewal with its landlord, he said, adding that other retail options in the area will be explored. Black, Starr & Frost’s other location in Phoenix, AZ will remain open.

“Black, Starr & Frost has been America’s longest continually operating jeweler in America, and will maintain that title. We have made the difficult decision to close our Newport Beach salon following extensive negotiations with the landlord in which we were unable to come to a feasible agreement,” says Molina. “We are exploring retail options in Orange County, as well as future expansion into new markets. Black, Starr & Frost has proudly served Orange County for 28 years, and is committed to continuing to serve the community, including chairing the upcoming American Heart Association Heart Ball gala on June 10 at The Ritz-Carlton, Laguna Niguel.”

She Wanted to Spend More Time with Her Kids. She Called Wilkerson.

Your children are precious. More precious than gold? Absolutely! Just ask Lesley Ann Davis, owner of Lesley Ann Jewels, an independent jewelry store that — until the end of 2023 — had quite a following in Houston, Texas. To spend more time with her four sons, all in high school, she decided to close her store. Luckily, she was familiar with Wilkerson and called them as soon as she knew she wanted to move on to bigger, better and more family-focused things. Was she happy with her decision? Yes, she was. Says Davis, “Any owner looking to make that life change, looking to retire, looking to close, looking for a pause in their career, I would recommend Wilkerson. Hands down!”
