Croghan’s Jewel Box

Readers Pick

Last fall Croghan’s Jewel Box was featured in the New York Times (alongside other local retailers J. Stark and Ibu) as part of a feature on “Shopping the New South.” The reason these Lowcountry stalwarts were highlighted is because, quite simply, they’re offering products and an experience that someone could get elsewhere — say New York or L.A. — but they’re choosing to stay in our fair town.

At the time sisters and Croghan’s family members and jewelry designers Kathleen Hay Hagood and Mariana Hay said: “We have one shot to create a great experience — to introduce the customer to a place that’s like nowhere else.” Two in-house lines, the ever popular Goldbug Collection, and a new flora series, Bloom Where You’re Planted, “help shepherd the family’s 111-year-old store into the 21st century.” Croghan’s has mastered the art of traditional, classic service — and timeless pieces of jewelry — while introducing more avant garde collections. Croghan’s, even after a century in town, expanded and renovated its King Street storefront in the past three years, showing that good things can only get better. —Connelly Hardaway
