Alegio's Berkeley shop.
We've long admired the presentation of Joan Coukos' chocolates at Alegio (1511 Shattuck at Vine, Berkeley), arranged under glass just as precious stones would be. So it's only a small shock that Alegio has announced that it now has a second outpost at San Francisco-based Manika Jewelry (11 Maiden Lane at Kearny).

Alegio, which also stocks hard-to-find luxury chocolatiers such as Claudio Corallo and Enric Rovira, should be an ideal option for those occasions when a diamond alone is simply not enough.
