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!!

These people are super nice and very helpful. Had the best prices in Christiansted. We found a piece of chaney on the island and they offered to wrap it in silver and ship it back to us.

This shop is a 'must stop' any time i visit the island! The handcrafted jewelry is beautiful and reasonably priced. I even had a chaney ring specially made for me during my last visit (thank you Marisol!) The size of the shop is perfect...not overwhelming but large enough to display a good selection...and the employees are helpful and patient

Lovely shop, should be on your list of places to visit in St. Croix. They have handmade jewelry of all sorts, but they have jewelry made from shards of antique pottery called Chaney, which I pictured, and is described in this link: http://www.stcroixthisweek.com/featured-articles/chaney-an-untold-story.html. If you want to take home an authentic piece of St. Croix history in a wearable piece... More
