Crucian Gold

FEEL THE LOVE! Crucian Gold is the studio of the Bishop family of artisans and metal smiths, 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.

Crucian bracelets are one of the most popular souvenirs from St. Croix. Here at Crucian Gold we offer a wide selection of hand-wrought bracelets for you to choose from.  Best of all, U.S. citizens are each allowed $1,600 duty-free, but locally made goods, such as artwork and hand-wrought jewelry, are exempt and don’t even count towards your $1,600.00!

How Do I Measure My Wrist?

To measure your wrist correctly, wrap an ordinary piece of paper or cloth comfortably around your wrist bone. Mark the point where the edges meet. This measurement (in inches) is your wrist size. Once you have this measurement, please add 1/4 an inch to that number to get the proper fit for you.  CLICK HERE to view Wrist Measurement Guide.

Bracelet Upgrades

It’s a popular Crucian tradition to purchase our Crucian Knot bracelets for babies and children. As they grow, you can upgrade the wrist size of a Crucian Knot bracelet for 20% of the bracelet’s current retail price. You can upgrade the width of the bracelet band by paying the difference between the retail price of your bracelet and the new size bracelet. This price would also cover an upgrade in wrist size.

Repair & Replacement

We proudly guarantee our work 100%. We will repair or replace any of our items that have broken due to our workmanship, free of charge. This excludes items damaged from misuse, wear-and-tear, chlorine exposure or an accident. The most common breakages we see occur at weakened stress points on bracelets due to exposure to chlorine and chlorinated products, such as cleaning products, hair styling products, swimming pools and jacuzzis. To repair such items, we charge 20% of the retail price. In any case, we must examine the item to accurately determine the type of damage. Our timeless creations are of superior quality and can be enjoyed for a lifetime
