Gold Creations has been a staple of the Historic Charleston Market for over 40 years. This family owned and operated jewelry store is nestled in the heart of bustling downtown Charleston, South Carolina, at the corners of S. Market and Church Streets.
The founders of Gold Creations are Vicki and Glenn Wolfe. The two met in high school, fell in love, and decided to hit the open road after graduation traveling west to see America. Looking for adventure, they drove all over the American Southwest in a VW Beetle, collecting Native American collectibles and wares from Indian reservations that they would soon be selling in Charleston.
With demand for space and inventory rising, Vicki and Glenn saw the need for a permanent place in the Market building. In 1974 Glenn and Vicki began to convert a storage closet into their very own 300 square feet jewelry store.
Several years later, success and popularity came to the small family business and Glenn came across a unique opportunity. The family was able to acquire the tools necessary to begin creating and casting their own jewelry. Glenn attended and completed Jewelers school in Florida and began creating handmade pieces, many of which can still be purchased today. Most notably, Glenn created several Charleston charms as well as a stunning signet collection which are still wildly popular.
The little store is home to over 1,000 14K Gold and Sterling silver charms, featuring several hand made Charleston charms. Some of the most iconic collections are Charleston Rice Beads, Gates of Charleston, and Sweetgrass Baskets, which all have roots back to Charleston’s colonial days. The store also has many treasures featuring precious and semi-precious stones. The varying collections represent elements of the Lowcountry and make excellent reminders of a trip to Charleston.
