Margie Rogerson's customers are an interesting mix including clientele in the political and entertainment worlds as well as the savvy shopper.
goldberry's Fine Jewelry is enchanting, unique and competitively priced. Ms. Rogerson conceived goldberry in 1967 while a sociology student at the University of California at Berkeley. The micro mini-dress launched her career. Shown to Bally of Switzerland, they ordered a dozen of these creations. Her designs lined the windows of Telegraph Avenue in Berkeley and Haight Street in San Francisco during the Summer of Love. "I was getting so many orders, I dropped out of Berkeley, gave up sociology, and I knew I would be a fashion designer," says Ms. Rogerson.
Selling to many specialty boutiques in 1972 Ms. Rogerson was introduced into major department stores by James Ludwig of Sak's Fifth Avenue. In 1976 goldberry was opened on fashionable Sacramento Street in Presidio Heights, San Francisco.
