About Us

80% of our jewelry is unique to Charleston Gems.

Locally owned since 1979

Dennis moved to South Carolina from the west coast while serving  in the Marines.  It was shortly after that that he fell in love with the jewelry business.  After working several years for a large retail jewelry store, and becoming a graduate gemologist it became clear to him that opening a jewelry store of his own specializing in onsite repair and unique jewelry was his next step.

One-of-a-kind Pieces

Charleston Gems was opened in 1979 in Charleston, SC. The concept of Charleston Gems is a unique one. We offer different, one-of-a-kind pieces that you will not find in every store or on every corner.

Keeping Costs low

Staying a small local business and sometimes using recycled materials has allowed us to keep our cost down and pass on great prices to our customers.

We Would Love to See You

We pride ourselves on personal service for every customer as well as unique and creative jewelry.
