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!! « less

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.

If you're looking for quality, hand-crafted workmanship in a jewelry shop; Cruzan Gold is your place to go. There are plenty of pieces unique to the island and all represent the islands culture in some form. Whether you're just passing through or residing, represent the islands with a gold or silver piece from Cruzan Gold.

I purchased a gold Crucian knot ring with matching earrings as a Christmas present for my wife. I earned major points and believe me I need every one I can get. Transaction was smooth, accurate, and timely.
