North Shore jewelry designer Jill Alberts (jillalberts.com) has opened a new store at 311 Park Avenue in Glencoe. Alberts’s previous store in Highland Park had a devout North Shore following, but the designer explained that her new location is — quite literally — closer to home.
“Moving to Glencoe where I live is a natural expansion of my brand and what I do,” she explained in a statement. “This was not only a practical move but also an evolution of the concept. The new space will allow for more events, trunk shows and a wider selection of jewelry, accessories and home décor.”
