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 were shopping randomly in Christiansted and happened into this store. I got my favorite item here! We had a wonderful conversation with one of the ladies who runs the store and learned about the pieces as well as the island. We ended up buying a honeycomb pendant that is from a collection they made to support local beekeepers after... More

If you are looking for a one of a kind jewelry purchase on St. Croix, put this on your list to stop. They have original designs that all come with a card descibing what the symbol means. I got a "fire" bracelet signifying embracing change and a crucian knot ring. My daughter got an infinity ring and fire pendant and... More

This shop has some amazing pieces of artful, creative jewelry. I was blessed to have a special friend treat me to the two-tone Crucian knot bracelet. Maria was so helpful, not just with our purchase, but also with historical information about other pieces. I also purchased some prints from Sistah Art, Elisa McKay, to brighten up my home and remind... More

This little place is just so beautiful. Their jewelry is breathtaking and really beautiful. They have the shop connected to the store where they make the jewelry. The staff is friendly and helpful. They don't really try to sell you anything. Just there to help.

Really glad I found this place. I love to find items made wherever I'm traveling and this place was by far my favorite. Not only did they have a great selection of jewelry, but everyone there was really nice and helpful. I ended up buying several pieces and love them!

We have been going to CG for years - since 1999. I have several pieces of their unique jewelry as do some of my family members. On this trip however, we were really looking for something special.

Stopped in here after hearing about their beautiful jewelry. Their jewelry is beautiful and is priced better than ib designs.

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.

Ok so all of my friends got these amazing brackets. They are original to the island and symbolize luck and prosperity etc.. Also if the hook is pointed toward you your heart is taken if its away from you its free so basically your dating or your not. Its a cute bracelet and comes in many varieties!!
