G&F Travel Charleston: Croghan’s Jewel Box
Over a century ago, jeweler and hand engraver William Joseph Croghan opened the doors of his namesake shop in Charleston. Now, CROGHANâ€™S JEWEL BOX is the oldest family-owned jewelry store in Charleston featuring fine jewels, custom designs, estate treasures and antiques. Four generations later, William Croghanâ€™s granddaughter MINI HAY is creating her very own line and legacy paved in all its gilded glory. Miniâ€™s Goldbug Jewelry pays homage to Charlestonâ€™s unofficial mascot: the cockroach. Cockroaches may still evoke terror in the squeamish, but Miniâ€™s gold dipped insects feel nostalgic and chic. The giddy Mini explains even the most beautiful, historic homes in Charleston are home to cockroaches, and the pestsâ€™ mainstay should serve as a reminder of all the memories and happiness within the city.
