We visit IB Designs every time we are in St Croix. The quality and the styling of their jewelry is unmatchable. I have many of their bracelets that I have worn for years, every day, and they are still as beautiful as the day I bought them.
This last year I brought my daughters ring which had been somewhat crushed by a machine. The quality is so good that it saved my daughters finger!!! They fixed it for a nominal fee and mailed it back.
Their service and quality is first class

I am so pleased with the ‘Gratitude’ bracelet I bought during my recent visit to
St. Croix. The jewelry selection at ib designs is unique and special, and when I picked out my favorite design, it was unfortunately not available at the store in my size. The salesperson quickly identified the correct size for my wrist and helped me place an order. I received a custom bracelet at home a few days later, and I love it! Thank you ib designs for the beautiful, excellent fitting bracelet, and for your outstanding customer service.

First of all, the jewelry is absolutely gorgeous! The store has a wonderful boutique yet quaint island vibe-Caribbean chic! Kimberly was very friendly and inviting. I always buy silver jewelry, but this trip I decided to splurge on a gold ring. I was a bit hesitant at choosing a size as my fingers swell at times. Kimberly went above and beyond helping me to decide, and I am so happy to say it's perfect! My size was not in stock, but it soon arrived at home exactly when Kimberly said it would. I can't wait to visit the store again my next trip, and maybe buy something online before then...

Lots of places offer "Cruzan" hook bracelets, but if you're looking for something more or something different, this place is a "must" visit. The owners have been creating and selling jewelry in this tiny, well-located venue for years, and now the next generation may be coming along. Two of this outfit's designs are of particular note: one is the cylindrical finger ring with loose rings on the outside...it's fun and attention-getting wherever it's worn, and the other is a bracelet made of hand-twisted wires. My wife has these in gold, and you won't find either in any commercial jewelry "line." On the latest trip, we brought another couple with us to the store, and, predictably, another of those rings went out with us.

Beautiful handcrafted silver jewelry, contemporary and graceful. I wear my IB bracelets often, and think each time of this lovely island. I found a piece of Chaney pottery on the beach, and IB finished it with silver framing and a bail; now it’s a unique pendant!

What fun to share the memories of St. Croix through your ib treasures. Thanks for making us part of the experience. Always fun to set a piece of chaney that was found on our beautiful shore. Wear well.

Each time we stay on St. Croix, visting IB Designs is a must. Every piece of jewelry I have ever purchased has been a joy to own and wear. I have also ordered online from their website and felt the same personal attention was given to me because of the fast, careful shipping and hand written note enclosed with my piece.

Saw the silver loveknot earings online prior to my visit to St. Croix, and put them on my list of 'haves' while I was there on the island. Loved the little boutique shop. Loved the friendly, professional service. Loved the personally made earrings that were shipped directly to my home in Florida. I would definitely visit and purchase from ib designs again when I return.

If you have an opportunity to visit St Croix a stop at IB Designs is a must. Their handmade jewelry is beautiful. My favorite is the ball and link chain and I receive so many compliments when I wear it. Look for them on Facebook and Instagram to see what they offer for yourself. You won’t be disappointed

I have shopped in person (when I’m so lucky to be on island) and online for bracelets at ibdesigns. Every time, I’ve gotten amazing, beautiful and unique jewelry. And the designers/owners are truly great! It is a must stop when I visit!
