Meet the Team

Since 1999, Grace Jewelers has been a very special place to find beautiful jewelry in downtown Black Mountain, North Carolina. The quality of our handcrafted and handselected jewelry is only surpassed by that of the reception of every visitor who enters the store. We believe that great service makes a great difference and therefore have a strict policy to always “greet you at the front door!”
