Jewelry brand Kimberly McDonald will open a brick-and-mortar location next month in the Buckhead Village District, according to a press release. This is the brand’s second store, with one operating in Los Angeles at Collective for Fred Segal on Sunset Boulevard.
Buckhead Village District is a rebrand by new Owner Jamestown of The Shops Buckhead Atlanta. The developer, known locally for Ponce City Market and Westside Provisions District, last year acquired the center and has been redeveloping it.
Replacing La Perla lingerie store, the 1,850-square-foot store will offer bespoke fine jewelry and home decor and accessories. Some items featured in the space include stalagmite wine grottos, embedded geode lucite panels, and refinished vintage hand-crafted bombe chests.
While displaying its jewelry, the boutique hopes to provide an experience for its shoppers, with different “environments” throughout the store created with custom-made wallcoverings and carpets featuring various natural stone patterns on an exaggerated scale.
The jewelry brand was started by Kimberly McDonald in 2007 as an e-commerce site. Since then, her works have been worn by high-profile figures such as First Lady Michelle Obama, Amy Adams, Carrie Underwood, and Steph Curry.
“Having lived in Atlanta after college, in fact in Buckhead much of that time, it is so exciting for me to return home to open my e-commerce business here as well as my own store at Buckhead Village District,” Mcdonald said in the release. “It’s exciting to see the changes in the overall area over the past 20 years, especially this property which houses some of the most reputable luxury brands in the world; now including my own.”
