ABOUT SWEET & SPARK
Founded in 2012, Sweet & Spark was born out of a belief that timelessness is chic, femininity can be modern, and when it comes right down to it, they just don't make jewelry the way they used to.
We like to think of ourselves as a company that's making old feel new again. Our jewelry pieces are all one-of-a-kind vintage, with each one standing the test of time and style. Since the beginning, our collections have been curated with one vision in mind: to help you celebrate everyday and every occasion.
In 2017, we proudly launched our first ever S&S Women's Clothing Collection, filled with gorgeous, feminine pieces from our favorite contemporary designers. Just like our jewels, each season we set out to find high quality and timeless clothing pieces for today's modern woman. It’s our way of bringing you the sweet to pair with your spark -- a true cause for celebration indeed! You can shop our Women's Collection here.

ABOUT THE CO-FOUNDERS
Sweet & Spark was founded in 2012 by Jillian after leaving corporate life as an apparel buyer and making the move to San Francisco. After years of working for Gap and American Eagle, Jillian was inspired to create a company rooted in her love for vintage. Jillian had grown up traveling with her antique collecting Father, which sparked the initial idea for curating vintage jewelry.
At the same time, Emilee was working as a jewelry designer in New York City for Marc Jacobs and Kate Spade after graduating from Parsons School of Design. Serendipitously, Jillian and Emilee were connected through friends in 2015 and instantly bonded over their mutual love for all things vintage. They remained internet pen pals until Emilee decided to make the move to San Francisco in 2016. It didn't take long before the girls began working together as partners, and in 2018 they opened the very first Sweet & Spark brick and mortar in the heart of Pacific Heights right on Fillmore street. Keep your eye out for more magic happening in the near future!
