San Francisco Bay Area’s Only Messika Experience Launches at Stephen Silver Fine Jewelry

San Francisco Bay Area’s Only Messika Experience Launches at Stephen Silver Fine Jewelry With Messika, for the first time ever, Silicon Valley jeweler partners with outside jewelry brand

Ultra-luxury jeweler and international treasure hunter Stephen Silver has found his latest treasure in the form of Messika, a French jewelry Maison favored by Hollywood stars like Kate Moss, Beyonce, and Gigi Hadid. For the first time ever in the company’s history, Stephen Silver will welcome an outside brand into his showcases at the Rosewood Sand Hill in Menlo Park with the launch of the Bay Area’s first and only Messika Exhibition experience. This Messika jewelry complements the high-end assortment of house-made jewelry that has long been Stephen Silver Fine Jewelry’s specialty, extending the store’s offerings with high-fashion styles at a more accessible price point. Stephen and Jared Silver were joined by Valerie Messika on October 22 to celebrate the launch of the new Messika Exhibition at the Rosewood Sand Hill.

Stephen Silver found a special synergy with Valerie Messika, Founder of the jewelry Maison, that drew him to the brand. The Silver family and the Messika family are both multi-generational jewelers with longstanding connections in international gemstone trading, and each takes an unorthodox approach to jewelry design, more likely to set a trend than to follow one.

Stephen and Jared Silver have made their niche dealing in important estate pieces, precious gemstones, collectible timepieces, and bespoke jewelry. Valerie Messika, meanwhile, set out to shake up the image, look, and atmosphere that has come to be associated with mainstream fine jewelry with fashion-forward, playful designs. Messika jewelry appeals to a contemporary and cosmopolitan demographics of Stephen’s clientele in Silicon Valley, the Bay Area, and beyond.

Stephen Silver: “When we decided to expand our business a few years ago by introducing luxury timepieces for the first time, we laid out the criteria that we would only bring in outside brands that reflected our own values, those who had something unique and compelling to say through the products they created. Valerie Messika has met the same criteria. She has something unique to say, creating jewelry designs that transcend what’s been done before in fine jewelry. That’s why, after over forty years of business in fine jewelry, we are proud to introduce our first outside jewelry brand with the Messika Maison, and to bring the first Messika brand Exhibition to the Bay Area, exclusively at Stephen Silver Fine Jewelry.”

“I am proud to join the Silvers to introduce Messika jewelry to the Bay Area at Stephen Silver Fine Jewelry. This jewelry salon and its proprietors represent the character and modern mindset that we look for in our partners, and the perfect location at the epicenter of Silicon Valley at the Rosewood Sand Hill,” stated Messika Founder Valerie Messika.
