I was delighted to re-visit a store where I have a personal history and to see how they have remained relevant and true to themselves at the same time.
It is architecturally evocative of a jewelry box opening to reveal treasures. Hale's does not disappoint on any level.
For me the space is defined by a suspended sculpture that creates a luxurious atmosphere conducive to a high-end jewelry store. The voluminous curves respond to the changing natural light throughout the day and function as lighting somewhat akin to the floating candles of the dining hall at Hogwarts. Yes, it is magical. And I can think of no better place to make a memorable jewelry purchase. As it should be!
James Moseley of The Heirloom Companies was commissioned to created the lighting by DP3 Architects, both local firms. Even the custom-designed rug was made locally by Milliken, just up the road.
If you are driving through the Carolinas on your way to anywhere, do stop by.
They are at the very convenient crossroads of I85 in Greenville SC. Say hello to Shannon and Lucien, and bask in the diamonds and that sigh-worthy lighting.
Have a lovely weekend, y'all.
