Award-Winning Harvard Square Jewelry Store Expands to Chestnut Hill

Entrepreneur Esmeralda Lambert opens second location next to Bloomingdales, Kate Spade.

Cambridge, MA, October 23, 2018 --( Just three years after launching her award-winning
boutique in Harvard Square, entrepreneur Esmeralda Lambert has opened a new location at The Shops at
Chestnut Hill.

Lambert - a Babson MBA and a Babson Alumni Entrepreneur Hall of Fame “Rising Star,” whose
family-owned business has been supporting and promoting artisans and other micropreneurs across the
globe for the past 5 years - has expanded her eponymous accessories store with a 1,000-square-foot space
next door to Bloomingdales and Kate Spade. Esmeralda Chestnut Hill is twice as large as the flagship
Harvard Square shop in Cambridge, which opened in 2015 and has been named Boston's Best
Accessories by Boston's A-List for the past two years.

The new location has allowed Lambert to curate her largest and most diverse selection yet of local and
international hand-crafted jewelry, accessories and gifts, representing 17 countries, 12 U.S. states and
nine Massachusetts makers. Esmeralda Chestnut Hill will feature unique designers, like Smadar Sarid,
Michelle Pressler and Ruby Zaar, offering distinctive designs, like gold weaving from Israel, natural
gemstone clusters in sterling silver, fair trade hand-woven silk scarves and Esmeralda Lambert's own
signature lightweight beaded statement jewelry.

“The larger space allows me room for innovation and experimentation,” says Lambert. “With Chestnut
Hill, I have added three new countries and four states that I have never worked with. Core to our mission
is to sustainably empower more artisan makers and family businesses. So, as I grow I am able to pull
more families up with me and create a ripple effect.”

The Chestnut Hill location is Esmeralda's third pop-up store this year, following its successful run at
Boston Winter and Faneuil Hall over the past two seasons. The pop-up model has given Lambert the
opportunity to test new designers and expand her existing partnerships, while ultimately growing her

“The pop-up store model has allowed me, as a small business, to grow my sales and test new markets and
products in prime seasons, while minimizing risks of long term leases that can be risky gambles for a
small company,” Lambert says. “For example, with the addition of Boston and Newton stores, I am able
to triple sales with my top U.S. artisans.”

For her new location, Lambert partnered up with veteran visual merchandiser Floriane Demers, who has
worked with major retail labels like Louis Vuitton, to create a store experience catered to the style and
elegance that Chestnut Hill customers expect.

Esmeralda Chestnut Hill will host a Grand Opening event on Saturday, October 27 from 3PM to 6PM.
The store will remain open until December 31, 2018.
