With summer upon us, it’s actually the very best time to start thinking about how to prepare your store for colder days ahead. Few features can give a jewelry store a homier feel more quickly than a fireplace. If you’re thinking about building a fireplace this year to serve as a store focal and gathering point for your customers, here are some pictures of some of the country’s most impressive jewelry store fireplaces to fire up your imagination.

To underscore the welcoming spirit of Adeler Jewelers in Great Falls, VA, owner Jorge Adeler created six seating areas, as well as an enclosed front porch. A cast-iron insert fireplace is the focal point of one of those seating areas, and above that, is a TV. Wendy Adeler, who is vice president of marketing and philanthropy, says, “We invite our Facebook followers to stop by, watch games, and enjoy Buffalo wings and beer — because now we have the perfect place for them to relax and enjoy themselves.”

Authenticity is the mantra at Belle Brooke Barer in Santa Fe, NM. It extends from her space, which is in a former Santa Fe horse stable, to her handmade work, which is true to her conceptual vision and uses sustainable materials. Step into her adobe-walled habitat, and authenticity is the theme here, too.

At Belle Brooke Barer in Santa Fe, NM, the adobe-walled habitat is heated with wood in the green kiva fireplace and the jewelry is all made on site in an attached studio.

Directly off the sales floor at Williams Jewelers in Englewood, CO, a customer lounge, also known as a man-cave, boasts a separate, complementary environment with a bar, local beers on tap, a fireplace and a TV. The man-cave is decorated with signed Denver Bronco jerseys. A jewelry case was converted into a combination bar and watch museum for a vintage Rolex collection. “That’s a place I like to hang out,” says Steve Williams, Shaina’s father, who owns the business with his wife, Diane.

Kas A Designs of Jefferson City, MO, occupies two Victorian homes, with a fashionable yet relaxed aesthetic. The buildings are listed on the National Register of Historic Places. Visitors twist an old-fashioned brass doorbell to be let into a late-19th-century parlor with a fireplace. “I added a crystal chandelier there, too,” says owner Kas Jacquot. “I always wanted to do that.”

At Evans Jewelers in Smithfield, NC, the design aesthetic mixes eras. Says owner Daniel Evans Jr.: “I love the industrial look, combined with the old and the new, like a Duratrans on a wall built in the 1800s.” There’s also a seating area with leather wing-back chairs and a cow-hide rug next to a bar and a slate fireplace. “People come and sit in the leather chairs and chill for a little while. I love to greet and meet people, and it will eventually turn into a sale, but everything’s not dollar-driven for us,” Evans says. A walk-in humidor is filled with private-label EJ Cigars. The ceiling is 25 feet high and incorporates exposed steel beams that came from the railroad system over 100 years ago.

At Alvin Goldfarb Jeweler of Bellevue, WA, a fireplace and seating area give living room intimacy to a two-story space.

To create a warm atmosphere at Koerbers Fine Jewelry in New Albany, IN, the Koerbers built a stone fireplace area with plush chairs where visitors can sit back and enjoy a cup of coffee or freshly baked cookies from the coffee bar. In addition, they christened the full bar Koerber’s Pub, where clients can enjoy a beverage or take a TV break while they shop.

A professional-grade coffee bar and blazing fireplace invite visitors to venture in a little farther at Green Lake Jewelry Works in Seattle, WA.

The waterfall-adjacent site of Bruno Fine Jewelers in Mercer, PA, is one of America’s most unique jewelry store locations. “Jewelry stores can be stuffy and intimidating,” says owner Larry Bruno. “Nature can take some of that away, and this view is beautiful. I felt it would create a unique experience.”

At Bruno Fine Jewelers in Mercer, PA, the pine fireplace mantel, from an Ohio tavern, is 200 years old.

Specializing in Montana’s Yogo sapphires, The Gem Gallery of Bozeman, MT, is a Montanaesque experience in myriad ways, with open post beams, natural river rock on the walls, rustic wood floors and cases hand-made from local wood.
It features an open floor plan with corner windows providing an enticing view of downtown.

At The Gem Gallery of Bozeman, MT, the artwork on the walls and above the fireplace changes seasonally with exhibits by local Montana photographers.

At Howard’s Diamond Center in Triadelphia, WV, flowers and chairs around the store’s fireplace add touches of the store’s signature purple hue.

Goldsmith Gallery Jewelers in Billings, MT, radiates the ambience of an elegant lodge, complete with a fireplace. That reflects the outdoor life of its customers: miners, cattle ranchers, oilmen, visiting skiers from nearby Red Lodge Mountain Resort. Says owner Scott Wickham: “Someone may come in here in a camouflage jacket and boots and spend $100,000.”

The massive fireplace is a central focus at Goldsmith Gallery Jewelers in Billings, MT.

Says owner Ken Branham of Branham’s Jewelry in East Tawas, MI, “I began designing [the store] from a perspective of walking through the northern woods.” As a result, the store has large pine trees, ash plans and a “river walk” running through it that invites customers to meander around showcase until they arrive at a two-story fireplace with a waterfall feature and a coffee bar.
