Jewelry Designer Temple St. Clair At Croghans
Blog and video by style intern, Julianne Zigos.
Croghan's has partnered with The Wine Shop for preview events to four trunk shows, and offering guests the chance to win a trip to Napa Valley! February 9th kicked off the 2011 series of trunk shows at Croghan's with a fabulous event, complete with a special appearance by designer, Temple St. Clair. It was truly a privilege to meet Temple and learn about her collections, which are carried exclusively in Charleston at Croghan's. As she celebrates her 25th anniversary in the business, I asked her to reflect on the evolution of the Italian made line of fine jewelry. She shared with me that in the beginnings, her jewelry was very much inspired by literature and history. Today, her line continues to be stylish and fashionable and has become more modern and clean in design. Temple St. Clair pieces feature 18kt gold and rare colored gemstones such as aquamarine, tourmaline, rock crystal, and blue moonstone, which continues to be a signature stone for the line. Her latest collection features rubies, emeralds, and sapphires inspired by Persia and the richness of the colors and culture. These collections are truly unique works of art. The energy and excitement the Croghan's team expressed as they shared it - really made for a great party!
