The tiniest jewelry store in San Francisco is about to get a whole lot bigger. After months of hard work and preparation, Fiat Lux owners Alexei Angelides and Marie McCarthy (remember when they got engaged on Instagram?) will launch a web store this week on Thursday, November 7. And Racked is helping them celebrate with a party!
The celebration is on Thursday, November 7 from 7 to 11pm at The Office, 194 Church Street in San Francisco, and you're invited! Just RSVP here, and we'll put you on the list. There will be beverages, and a raffle: Fiat Lux is giving away three gift certificates for $25, $50 and $100. You could put that towards becoming the proud owner of your very own goat hammer, or the black diamond arrowhead ring (pictured above) by Lauren Wolf that we're currently coveting.

Or maybe you're looking to follow in in Alexei and Marie's footsteps and seal the deal with your sweetheart? When the site launches on Thursday, look for the extra-special "Ritual" section. You'll find stunning diamonds and gold bands of both the traditional and non-traditional variety, including some that are exclusive to Fiat Lux. All are perfect for getting down on one knee—or posting on Instagram, if that's more your style. See you Thursday!
