October 2022


What it is:

A family-owned jewelry store founded in 1956 offering custom work, repairs for fine jewelry, watches and clocks, exclusive designer collections, and giftware from regional artisans.

Where to find it:

Look for an “open” flag hanging from one of a pair of teal columns near a lamppost on Hope Street in Bristol. Before entering, be sure to check out the current window display.

What makes it a Rhody Gem?

Not just a jewelry store, Caron is a jeweler, which means you can design custom engagement rings and wedding bands from their selection of diamonds and gemstones. Owner Joe Caron has serious credentials, including being a certified watchmaker, Master IJO Jeweler, and Graduate Gemologist. With her artistic eye and MFA in fine art printmaking, wife Diane Berube-Catanzaro keeps the shop beautiful along with her own line of rare gemstone jewelry called Michi Designs, etchings, and artwork. Be dazzled by their designer collections and goods at various price points. In addition to all of this eye candy, you can get your watch battery replaced while you browse.
