Jewelry has been a human fascination for many thousands of years, and for the artisans at Savannah Jewelry Gallery (SJG), it’s no different.
“We have a lot of vintage and estate pieces,” says Social Media and Digital Content Manager Jake Calle, “and our jewelers love talking about the age, origins, and significance of jewelry throughout different eras. In fact, what we hear most from our clients is how knowledgeable our staff is.”
And, because Savannah Jewelry Gallery employs a team of master goldsmiths, the possibilities within are endless. Jewelers can swiftly execute tricky repairs, create custom designs using both traditional techniques and the latest technology or do same-day resizing of rings. This custom service is a key tenet of SJG, in which jewelers work directly with clients on projects ranging from custom engagement rings to recreations to personal pieces made from gems or other family heirlooms. Says owner Spencer Kohl, “I wanted to bring local designers together into an in-house jeweler’s studio to serve as a platform for interaction between artists and clients so that everyone can experience the joy of handmade artisan jewelry.”
Speaking of customization, there’s a new jewelry trend in town!
The gallery has just launched a permanent jewelry line called Forever by SJG. So, how does it work? “You come in and pick from our variety of 14K gold chains,” says Jake, “then we weld it together on your wrist.” The process is quick, painless, and permanent in that it stays there as long as you want it. “Unlike sterling silver or gold-plated options, solid gold will hold up in the shower, the pool, and the ocean, and will never tarnish.” SJG currently offers seven durable chain options: five in yellow gold, one in white gold, and one in rose gold, several charm options and all of the birthstones, too. Coming soon: permanent anklets and necklaces, as well!
So, whether you’re picking through the gallery’s rough and loose gemstone displays, checking out unique pieces made right in the shop or exploring the possibilities of the Forever by SJG line, Savannah Jewelry Gallery has you covered. It even offers gorgeous and fully customizable made-to-order engagement rings! “We really are a one-stop shop for all your jewelry needs,” says Spencer.
Right now at SJG you can find the work of local artists Carolina Rodriguez, Jay Chughtai, Joey Trillo, Sarah Rose, and Spencer Kohl. Open Monday through Saturday 11 a.m.-6 p.m. and Sundays from 11 a.m.-5 p.m., Savannah Jewelry Gallery can also be found on Instagram at @SavannahJewelryGallery. Don’t miss out on this one-of-a-kind jewelry experience!
