Whether you’re searching for a unique piece of jewelry, a beautiful Savannah memento or high-quality jewelry repair services, Golden Realm has just what you’re looking for.
Nestled in the heart of City Market at 307 W. Bryan Street, Golden Realm offers a stunning selection of earrings, necklaces, bracelets and much more. Since 2013, Golden Realm owners Cindy and Steve Carroll have been delighting Savannah locals and visitors with their incredible inventory, including Savannah’s largest selection of cameos, as well as a wide range of collectible knives, coins and local artwork.
“Everything in the store is one-of-a-kind,” says Cindy. “I handpick everything. We find unique pieces no one else has.”
Cindy has a passion for customer service and an eye for amazing jewelry. She helps customers pick the perfect jewelry settings, identify their favorite gemstones and makes each shopping experience memorable. This talented buyer searches the globe for unique merchandise and can share the history and story behind each item.
A master jeweler, Steve creates by hand many of the spectacular custom designs featured in the store’s glittering glass display cases. He’s also a go-to resource for heirloom and vintage jewelry repairs, which are all done on-site.
“Steve can fix anything,” Cindy raves. “What he does is mind-blowing. We do a lot of vintage jewelry restoration. He also fixes watches, candlesticks and clocks and can repair fine jewelry while the customer waits.”
A goldsmith and silversmith, Steve began welding, designing and making his own jewelry when his grandfather, a Cherokee Indian, introduced him to the trade. After many years working with jewelry, he went to school to get certifications in advanced diamond setting, jewelry repair and design, casting and production.
Golden Realm also has a stone bank, featuring a wide selection of gemstones, from diamonds to colored stones, that can be incorporated into custom creations. The store even has a faceting machine on-site, which enables this master jeweler to re-cut fine gemstones upon request.
What makes Golden Realm different? “We go out of our way to help our customers, whether they’re local or visiting Savannah,” Cindy explains. “When a customer can’t wait for ring size or repair because they’re headed out to catch a flight home, we offer free shipping. If they like Steve’s quality work, they can send us their items and we will repair them, size them, restore them – whatever you need. We’ll also ship everything, fully insured, right back to you when they’re completed.”
Cindy and Steve consider customers to be part of their family, and strive to give them the quality and attention they deserve. This hard-working couple enjoys the opportunity to share exquisite jewelry and fine collectibles with a growing audience.
“We have something for everyone,” Cindy explains. “If we don’t have it, we’ll seek it out for you.”
