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.”

Why This Fourth-Generation Jeweler Chose Wilkerson for a Very Special Sale

Parian & Sons of Franklin Lakes, NJ was founded in the early part of the 20th century. But even stores that have successfully made it through the Great Depression, a World War and the Woodstock Generation must come to an end. With no family wanting to continue the tradition, the time was right for Glenn Parian and his wife, Maria, to retire. And what better way to do so than by hiring Wilkerson to help with the store’s liquidation sale. As Glenn puts it, with his credit card machine humming to the tune of up to 200 transactions a day, he couldn’t have done it without Wilkerson. “This is what they do,” he says. “This is what they do for everybody.”
