Recognizable, yet each piece is a truly one of a kind functioning work of art. Kro-gu Jewelers flagship store located in the Caribbean on the beautiful paradise island of St. John is internationally branding the Kro-gu Jewelry as a brand.The word "Kro-gu" is derived from the Old Slavic and means "binding" or "a band around a finger". Kro-gu is a free form and dynamic , like a sculpture. Its great variety of forms is the result of daily artisanal process , reflecting the diversity of emotions that affects the silversmithing artist. Our jewelry carries 950 mark because we use 95% of silver (and 5%of copper) instead of 92.5% (925) sterling silver. That way , we found , jewelry is easy to maintain- easier to adjust the size (higher amount of silver brings more flexibility) and easy to preserve the color . All stones are genuine.

I usually keep my jewelry very functional and simple. This trip I decided that I wanted something special and unique. Stephen was incredibly patient and helped me find the perfect piece!! I went in to the shop expecting to do things the way I normally do - pick something and get in and out especially since I had my husband... More

Beautifully made one of a kind jewelry. I have worn my selection almost constantly since I purchased it and have received compliments on it everyday. I will definitely go visit Peter and Kro-Gu the next time I am visiting St. John! If you are there, don't miss this fabulous store!

The jewelry here is so unique. I can't believe how amazing Peter's store was. I have heard many people gushing about his business around the islands. I didn't expect the store to be this great! I am sure to visit this jewelry store again! This is a much visit location!

Unique and one of a kind pieces of jewelry ! A must stop shop if you want a special something no one else has or is wearing !! Also, good place to purchase the St. Croix Hook Bracelet. Just a little different from everyone else.

My wife bought a ring from Peter two years ago and came back for more this year. The design and selection of jewelry is unique, the service is very personalized, and the two dogs add a warm touch. She gets compliments and inquiries about her ring every time she wears it. Kro-gu is a must stop for jewelry!!
