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!!

Just shy of $100. Great buy! I also saw a bracelet that I liked with their local Chaney pottery on it but they didn't have any... More

Not cheaply made. Beautifully crafted, one of a kind jewelry. I shop here every time we come. I'm never disappointed with the handmade selection. No one else back home has my jewelry and I love supporting local art !

Stayed a week in St. Croix the first week of December 2016. A Trip to Crucian Gold is a must! They have beautiful unique jewelry and you can get a history lesson thrown in when looking at the Chaney jewelry. This is a family run business and the sales help were very nice.

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.
