After I had spent years working in the jewelry industry, my husband Stuart and I decided to open our own jewelry store right here in Denham Springs.
Finding a prime commercial location right on Florida Boulevard in October of 2012 gave us the opportunity to test the market. This was an incredible experience in that it gave us an entry into the growing Denham Springs retail market. It also allowed us the opportunity to see what our growth potential and space needs for the future might be.
When a larger building came available just seven months later in the highly coveted and popular Antique Village, we seized the day. This met two essential needs we had – to secure room to expand, and to become a part of a popular and growing shopping destination. We purchased the building in mid-April of 2013 and kicked into high gear to upgrade the new building with just enough time for a grand opening during SpringFest on April 26, 2013.
While we loved the Florida Boulevard location and shop, we knew that this new location would yield much more opportunity, allowing us to grow much faster and provide our customers with a higher level of selection. It has been one of the best decisions we could have ever made and we have settled into mixing our modern variety of jewelry and gifts with the developing vintage chic antique village of Denham Springs.
In August 2014, we added even more square footage to our showroom, repainted interior and added a beautiful stucco façade to the exterior. We also have added a full line of engagement and wedding bands to our fast growing selection of fine jewelry.
