Lily & Co. adds designer John Allan

By Staff | Jul 20, 2012

Lily & Co. Jewelers on Sanibel Island has formed a partnership with John Allan Designs and will carry an exclusive collection by the Sanibel jeweler and designer, John Allan Grinstead.

John Allan is famous for his patented Sanibel and Captiva-shaped bracelets that can be customized with a variety of specialty-made charms.

John Allan is a designer and accomplished master jeweler who has been designing unique Sanibel-themed jewelry for more than 30 years. Recently, he decided to take his attention away from running a successful retail space on the island and focus more on designing jewelry.

“I have been wishing to focus more on my designs and have a few new ideas that I look forward to developing and patenting in the near future,” said Grinstead. “I have some new uses and design ideas for the island shape and can’t wait to be able to work on these projects.”

Lily & Co. is a must-see store with collections that also include designers like Charles Garnier, Charles Krypell, Denny Wong, Gurhan, Kabana, Martin Flyer, and more.

“John Allan is a Sanibel artist and jeweler, which is something we really value because we like to support local artists,” said co-owner Dan Schuyler. “We are happy to welcome him to our gallery. There will be some new collections that John Allan plans to bring exclusively to Lily & Co., and I look forward to seeing these beautiful pieces in our store.”
