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!!

We walked through multiple jewelry stores without buying anything. Not only does Cruzan Gold have the most beautiful, locally, hand made jewelry, but their staff is by far the friendliest and they had the best prices! I even plan to order more from their website, I love it so much.

crucian gold has beautiful jewelry from local chinery found here on island made into local pieces. To their signature Cruzan knot bracelets earrings and rings. You can buy a piece expensive or get some items relatively cheap but all with good quality. And if it doesn't fit you can always exchange at the store for a new size!
