Owner description: Crucian Gold is the studio of the Bishop family of artisans and metalsmiths, Brian, Ben, Therese and Nathan. Together they design and create original pieces in gold, silver, copper, and local materials of their island home of St.Croix, VI. Brian grew up sailing and diving in the waters of St. Croix. He first started tying sailing knots in precious metals as a hobby in the 1970's, selling his first jewelry pieces from a handmade mahogany box he carried with him to display and share his budding passion.Now, Nathan and Therese can be found in Crucian Gold on Strand street creating new designs inspired by the history, people, and natural environment of St. Croix. All of the materials they work with come from recycled and eco-friendly sources. FEEL THE LOVE!!

Whenever i go into a tourist town, i always assume that the "arts and crafts" are actually made in china. I was pleasantly surprised and thrilled to find out that each of the pieces were handmade and to learn the story behind the jeweler! I've received so many compliments on my necklaces that i can't wait to go back to... More

We travel to St. Croix every January and each time I have to go in and get something. They have amazing chaney pieces and lots of variety in very reasonable prices.

Being new to the island, I started looking for the prized hook bracelets. This place is the tops. Local owners, extremely helpful, not pushy. Just recieved my Chaney hook today, and it is awesome. They have a nice selection of uncommon jewelry. I wont be buying anywhere else. Be sure to stop in and see the difference!

I like to get a piece of jewelry from the places I visit. I chose to shop at Crucian Gold because it's a local business with local artisans. The jewelry is beautiful, well-made, and affordable. I love the bracelet I got there.
