 Philippa There's no better spot in the East Bay for a woman in need of a bit of spoiling to douse herself than the retail sanctuary that is Philippa Roberts. Whether you're celebrating your birthday or marking another significant event ("I gave myself a jewelry budget equal to the cost of filing for my divorce!" a shopper gleefully informed the sales clerk during a recent visit), this jewelry and charming-gifty-things boutique was made for those times when you crave something unique, something to love, something that speaks to you. .

 510 Family Faves: Philippa from Philippa Roberts Jewelry A reader sent in a tip about Philippa Roberts Jewelry which piqued my interest in the artist, mother, and Piedmont Avenue store owner. Philippa designs jewelry inspired by shapes found in both nature and urban architecture. Her own working studio serves as a store to sell her modern designs along with other home, gift and baby merchandise.

The Gloss: 5 Steps to Make Your Own Jewelry

 Harry Winston, who needs him? We’ll make our own jewelry! Well, that didn’t go over that well actually (we tried using some beads, and vague enthusiastic attitude and ended up with something that looked like a candy necklace). Fortunately, designer Philippa Roberts was able to give us the following helpful tips about how to craft your own accessories.

Starfish & Sundresses

 Philippa Roberts for Me and You! One of my favorite things about blogging (aside from "meeting" so many amazing people!) is that I'm constantly being introduced to new brands that I love. Enter Philippa Roberts... Philippa was born in South Africa to a jewelry making family, opened her own studio in 1996 and has been taking inspiration from the pacific coast and making beautiful jewelry in the San Francisco Bay area ever since.

Gifts and Decorative Accessories

 Light and Breezy Philippa Roberts' Beach collection is delicate and feminine. The line features semi-precious stones and is done in vermeil.

East Bay Gazette

 Philippa Roberts is best known for boasting a jaw-dropping selection of beautiful brushed-silver and semiprecious-stone jewelry by its namesake designer. But you'll find plenty of other gift ideas here, too: several other lines of gorgeous jewelry, darling baby clothes, handcrafted candles, vibrant ceramic tableware, and more.

Apartment Therapy

 Philippa Roberts is our favorite home and gift store on Piedmont Ave. Philippa herself is a jewelry maker by trade, so you can also see her work at her shop. In addition to jewelry from both Philippa and other artists, the store is jam packed with all sorts of interesting and lovely home and gift items from mostly domestic designers and manufacturers.


 Delicate, feminine, sterling silver drop earrings adorned with aqua stones, along with necklaces, bracelets and rings dot the interior of this boutique. Designed by Philippa Roberts, the jewelry is made on-site. In the window, mugs and other ceramics adorned with images of spiders, dragonflies and bees add to the shop's whimsy, and, in back, canvas handbags include a humorous one featuring a retro 1950s image of a woman projected on a cartoon Earth with the saying, "Love Your Mother."
