Located on boutique-filled Little Santa Monica Boulevard, the small jewelry shop specializes in an original assortment of fanciful, customizable charms.

XIV Karats
314 S. Beverly Drive
Beverly Hills, CA 90212
(310) 551-1212
www.xivkarats.com

A Beverly Hills institution, this expansive always-crowded jewelry store has a ton of fine merchandise at exceptional prices. Essentially, it resembles a showroom you might find in the Jewelry District Downtown but it doesn’t come with the trek and parking obstacles (an attached lot with validated parking is available). With everything from mini sapphire-encrusted hoops to gargantuan engagement rings, the shop will not let you leave empty-handed. Additionally, custom orders are welcome, so if you have an insanely expensive design in mind, bring a picture in and one of the many XIV-Karat masters will help duplicate it. The trick here is that the price you see on the piece you’re interested in is actually half or sometimes more off!
