Dixie Dunbar Studio lets local craftsmen showcase local materials. Freshwater pearls and stunning semiprecious gems and stone materials combine for true art. Artisans often add unique modern twists, incorporating unexpected items such as rubber, silk, and more. Other local favorites include Gold Creations and Joint Venture Estate Jewelers, specializing in one-of-a-kind fine jewelry and estate pieces respectively. Visitors to Charleston vacation rentals can also have jewelry and watch repairs done on-site at Joint Venture.
