In addition to having one of the largest selections of diamond jewelry on St. Croix, this downtown shop also sells a wide variety of "chaney"—broken shards of colonial china wrapped in gold or silver then fashioned into pendants, bracelets, and more (island children would use the pieces as play currency; the word was created by combining "china" and "money"). Made from china pieces found on old plantation estates across the island, chaney commonly features blue ink designs on an ivory background, but the shop also sells rare pieces with purple, red, and green patterns.

Open Mondays through Saturdays 10 am to 5pm.
