Minimalist fine jewelry maker Mejuri moves into Hayes Valley and you're all invited to try on the bling—and get your ears pierced.Plus, home décor fave St. Frank debuts bedding and the SF Proper Hotel welcomes the ladies of Modern Citizen to its upcoming Rise & Style event.
Finally, you can check out Mejuri ring stacks, hoops and dainty diamonds in SF.
If you're all about high-quality, minimalist and timeless jewelry made for all-day, everyday wear, hear this: Insta-famous Mejuri recently opened, ahem, a jewel-box-sized boutique on Hayes Street. Sans glass displays, the store is designed so you can play, mix and match, and try on the pieces to your heart's (and ears' and fingers') content. The sleek neutral space—with pops of color courtesy of lush green plants lining the walls and bright yellow chairs in the window nook—features a ring bar stocked with stackable and engagement styles, a permanent ear piercing station and a dedicated space for private appointments. All fair-priced goodies come in limited quantities and are made in 14k gold, gold vermeil and sterling silver; diamonds and gemstones are ethically sourced. One last thing: Because of the brand's generous "hands-on" policy, the number of shoppers is closely monitored...i.e. there may be a queue to get in. // 325 Hayes St. (Hayes Valley), mejuri.com

Next Thursday, January 16th, Jessica Lee and Lizzie Agnew will be at Mid-Market's yummy La Bande café to share the wisdom they've gained as leaders of the much-gushed-about clothing retailer Modern Citizen. (ICYMI: the McKenna Wrap Dress and signature side-zip sweater perfectly capture the brand's effortless-chic aesthetic.) The event, which starts at 10:30am, is the latest in the Rise & Style series put on by the SF Proper Hotel. Lee and Agnew will discuss the routes they took before landing at MC, their desire to help empower women through their collections and behind the scenes, and what it's like to have all-female investors (yes!) Tickets cost $5—the very amount to be applied to your espresso, egg sando and/or pastry bill. Arrive early to grab a primo seat. // La Bande, Proper Hotel, 1100 Market St. (Mid-Market); RVSP at eventbrite.com.
P.S. In other breaking MC news: Next Wednesday and Thursday, January 15th and 16th (4pm–8pm), the retailer will be holding its first-ever Archive Sale at its Cow Hollow store @ 2078 Union Street. Shoppers will find a wide selection of archival and sample styles at yes-please prices—$15–$50.

SF's hip and haute home-design label St. Frank wants to get into your bedroom, too. That's because yesterday it debuted its very first bedding collection (plus crib sheets!). The duvets, sheets and shams come in three patterns— each of which is a fresh take on one of the label's loved global designs." I am excited to bring these patterns to a new fabrication. I've always loved patterned sheets, including iconic D. Porthault, and I imagined something in this vein but with a bohemian sensibility," explains St. Frank founder Christina Bryant. The three designs include: Light Star Muong, Blush Cactus Silk and Ecru Maze Kuba Cloth. Prices range from $95 for a sham to $450 for a king sheet set. Bedding is available online and in store. // 3665 Sacramento St, (Presidio Heights), stfrank.com
