By Staff | Nov 19, 2009

Sanibel’s first “jewelry gallery,” Lily & Co. Jewelers, will celebrate its third anniversary with an Island Appreciation event and the grand opening of the store’s new wing with an event next weekend, co-owners Karen Bell and Dan Schuyler announced on Tuesday.

In 2006, Bell, a Sanibel-Captiva Realtor, and Schuyler, a jeweler with 28 years of experience opened the doors to Lily & Co. Jewelers, at 520 Tarpon Bay Road. On Saturday, Nov. 28 from 5 p.m. to 9 p.m., the pair will host an evening of celebration for members of the public, featuring food, wine, art and musical entertainment by Andre and Soli. Valet parking will be provided for your convenience.

Guests are also invited to enter a special drawing to win an item of jewelry valued at $2,000. Tickets are $1 for 1 or $5 for 6 and will be available in advance. Please also bring an unwrapped gift appropriate for a child. Drawing proceeds and gifts to benefit Friends Who Care.

Meet the world-renowned couture jewelry designers Charles Krypell and Lecil Henderson at the event.

A native New Yorker, first generation jewelry designer Charles Krypell majored in sculpture, which is apparent in the jewelry he designs today. From his one-of-a-kind colored diamond pieces to his sterling collection there is something for every lifestyle.

The Henderson Collection has served as a renowned member of the jewelry industry since 1990, offering upscale and emerging retailers an exclusive collection of beautiful pieces crafted with diamonds and fine gold. Created with the end-user’s versatile lifestyle in mind, the fashionable designs merge old-world craftsmanship with new-world technology to offer impeccably constructed necklaces, bracelets and rings as well as hand-wrought and electro-form earrings.

Lily & Co. is Sanibel’s first jewelry gallery combining a fine jewelry store and art gallery in one location. Lily & Co. namesake and spokesdog is Lily, Bell’s Labradoodle who is often on site to greet customers and visitors. Schuyler’s Golden Labrador, Gracie, and her little sister, Angel, are always at the front door to greet guests.

Lily & Co. is a full-service jeweler, offering services from jewelry repair and restoration, watch repair and battery replacement, engraving services, bead and pearl re-stringing, pewter and holloware repair, as well as appraisal services. Lily & Co.’s P3 – or Positively Precious Program – enables them to purchase previously worn jewelry, stones, and fine stemware from customers for liquidation purposes.

Store hours are Monday through Saturday 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. For more information about Lily & Co., call 472-2888 or visit www.lilyjewelers.com.
