36 years Marking

on Hilton Head

Celebrating 36 years in 2017, Forsythe Jewelers continues to bring the world’s best designer jewelry and gifts to Hilton Head. Carrying the most popular designer brands, this family-owned business provides an unhurried, small-town shopping experience to every customer who enters the store. Over the past three decades, the store has established itself as an island landmark and its name is synonymous with shopping on Hilton Head. In fact, the Hilton Head Island-Bluffton Chamber of Commerce recently named Forsythe as its “Small Business of the Year.” Storeowner Andrea Bragg keeps Forsythe on-trend by traveling the world to meet personally with designers and see firsthand where and how the items she chooses for the showcases are made. As a member of The American Gem Society, Forsythe Jewelers takes pride in being part of a small percentage of jewelry stores in the world dedicated to high standards of professional ethics and education. For many locals, Forsythe is their “neighborhood” jewelry store where they are warmly greeted by name. For first-time visitors, the shop is the perfect backdrop for choosing a gift to remember their Hilton Head vacation. For returning visitors, shopping at Forsythe is as much a part of their vacation as an evening bike ride or walk on the beach…it’s an event they’ve been anticipating since their last trip to the island. Forsythe allows customers to slow down and shop at a pace that only a vacation can provide…no rushing or compromising; they’re now on “island” time.

Continuance Collection Sculpture, on the body. This is how Sybil Yurman describes the new Continuance collection; it is meticulously engineered to fall perfectly on the wrist or the neck. The Continuance collection’s striking, lyrical interpretations of loosened Cable motifs as links, loops, twists and knots create an alluringly natural and slightly undone effect. Continuance is an embodiment of beauty and romance.

Continuance Gold This collection is a particularly elegant example of this sort of the David Yurman craft; the organic lines, representing untwisted forms of Cable, are hand-formed to create looping and seductive repetitions—almost like the physical representation of rhythm in a song. Enhancing the melody, certain pieces are handset with gypsy set diamonds and pavé diamonds. Available in 18k pink and yellow gold.




fashion philanthropy Happy 35th Anniversary, HHSO! Forsythe Jewelers knows how to throw a party…especially when it involves raising money for a wonderful cause. On February 2, 2017, Forsythe hosted the “Sparkling Notes of Love” event to benefit the Hilton Head Symphony Orchestra (HHSO) and to help celebrate its 35th season. Over 70 guests filled the store that evening and were treated to live music, delicious fare, complimentary cleaning of their jewelry, a goody bag and of course, the latest collections from the world’s top jewelry designers! “The HHSO was thrilled with the response to the event by orchestra supporters and fine jewelry lovers,” shared Mary Briggs, HHSO President and CEO. “It was an evening that offered beautiful gems, lovely music, food, wine and the opportunity to visit with friends or make new acquaintances. Forsythe Jewelers is such a valued community contributor and partner.”


After the event, many of the guests traveled across the courtyard to dine at Truffles Café who also donated a percentage of their sales that evening to the HHSO. “I was thrilled to see that our donation, when combined with Truffles’, was over $3,500!” said Andrea Bragg, Forsythe’s owner. “Giving back to our community is a large part of our store’s DNA and it comes naturally. Whenever we can combine philanthropy and fashion, it makes for a fun and successful event!”

The combined donation from Forsythe and Truffles surpassed $3,500.

Princess Flower Collection Roberto Coin’s creative universe would not be complete without a collection dedicated to the symbol par excellence of gifts and beauty. The flower jewel signed by Roberto Coin is part of the creative bouquet of the Princess collection and has the same distinguishing twisted wire workmanship with alternating smooth and rough surfaces that evokes the characteristics of various essences.


The iconic shape of the petals in the Princess Flower remains the same and is narrated in a variety of shades. The necklaces and bracelets of the collection are filled with a multitude of flowers in various sizes that come in sequence as in a real flower garden. Sometimes, as in the case of the rings and pendants, the flower blooms alone as the absolute star of style and emotion – a marvel of majesty and grace that is born of precious seeds such as diamonds.


Florentine Collection Set in 18kt white, yellow or rose gold, the Roberto Coin Cento Collection offers remarkable radiance and breathtaking design.

The exclusive 100 facet architecture of the Cento diamond has nearly double the facets of a traditional round brilliant diamond.


Roberto Coin designed the extraordinary Cento diamond with the brilliance and fire of love in mind.

On a Monday morning in early September, sixyear-old Kylie Hicks, from Chattanooga, Tennessee, peered through the window at Forsythe Jewelers in The Shops at Sea Pines Center, waiting to select a sterling silver sea charm—a gift the locally-owned jewelry store offers to every child hosted by Hilton Head Heroes, a homegrown charity that provides resort vacations to families with children who have life-threatening illnesses. Hicks was diagnosed with leukemia two and a half years ago and has since undergone a series of treatments to save her life. “It’s 10 till 10. I see a family outside our door. She won’t even go to the beach until she picks out her necklace,” said store owner Andrea Bragg, recounting her first blessing of the day. Each week, a new “hero” child is afforded the same opportunity, and Bragg gets to be a part of something bigger than the Hope Diamond and more precious than gold. The selection of charms includes shark teeth, dolphins, sea turtles, sand dollars and starfish. “The children are so excited about coming in and making a memory,” Bragg said. “It is a small thing, and they are always so grateful, but I feel like I’m the one getting the gift.” Hicks chose a starfish, and according to her mother, Heidi Hicks, later that day, she found 16


a real starfish washed up on the beach. For the Hicks family, the beach represents life, and the charm has come to be a symbol of healing and universal love, as Kylie has completed her chemotherapy and is now in remission. Shop for a cause In addition to Hilton Head Heroes, Forsythe Jewelers supports a broad range of nonprofit organizations that positively affect the Lowcountry including the American Heart Association, Hilton Head Humane Association, Boys & Girls Club, Hilton Head Symphony Orchestra and many others. “As long as I can continue to be successful, I can continue to support these local charities,” Bragg said, “schools, animals, churches, arts—the list is long.” Last year, Forsythe Jewelers had the opportunity to team up with prestigious jewelry designer David Yurman, hosting an event to benefit a charity of choice. For Bragg, who worked at the Hilton Head Hospital from 19922001, prior to beginning her career at Forsythe Jewelers, the natural choice was Volunteers in Medicine (VIM), a local organization that provides free healthcare to needy families. “I remember how

excited the board and the leadership of the hospital were that Jack [McConnell] had this vision and how they participated in getting it started.” Several Forsythe clients were serving on the board at VIM, and Bragg’s employees were equally enthused. “Everybody who works here has lived in the area a long time. We are ingrained in the community, and we wanted to partner with a charity that we were all interested in supporting,” she said. Feel free to browse If you typically find jewelry stores intimidating or overwhelming, stop in Forsythe Jewelers any time for a warm slice of hospitality and a refreshing no-pressure shopping experience. Whether you are a local resident, a first-time vacationer or a returning visitor, you will be put at ease the moment you step through the door. You can even have your jewelry cleaned free of charge while browsing at your leisure. Like the founding family and the Hilton Head Island store’s previous owner, Debbie Rochow Berling, Bragg believes that success means more than making a sale. The true measure, she explained, is the joy that comes from serving others. “We love to serve our clients, we love to serve each other, and we love to serve the community. Whatever it is that somebody needs, that’s what we’re all about.” Forsythe Jewelers offers custom designs in addition to popular jewelry lines such as David Yurman, Roberto Coin, John Hardy, Gurhan, Marco Bicego, Lagos, Naledi and more. They also carry a selection of MacKenzie-Childs hand-painted tableware, furniture, and gifts. “People are amazed at the selection they can find here—like a big city shopping experience in a small town. Yet it’s unpretentious—not a scary place. We welcome you like you’re a part of our family, whether you buy anything or not,” Bragg said. Forsythe Jewelers currently employs six fulltime workers and one part-timer. “Everybody here has different skills and talents and we all fit together like a puzzle,” Bragg said. “We really care about our

customers and want to lead them to the right decision. It is truly our pleasure to be doing what we’re doing, and I think that’s apparent to our clientele.” In business locally for 36 years, Forsythe Jewelers has a vested interest in preserving the qualities that draw locals and visitors alike to a place they call home, and that means giving generously to the community. “The way we are successful is through our relationships,” Bragg said. “It’s all one giant circle. We are blessed to have this store and blessed by our clients, and we are glad to give back in any way that we can.” The mission of Hilton Head Heroes is to bring families with children between the ages of four and eighteen suffering from life threatening illnesses to Hilton Head Island, South Carolina for a resort vacation.

Since the launch of his eponymous jewelry line in 2000, Marco Bicego has redefined the phrase “everyday luxury� with sensuous, extraordinarily beautiful jewelry which blends old world Italian hand craftsmanship with tradition, passion, and imagination.


Masai Collection Inspired by the ornaments typical of the African Masai tribe. Each piece is crafted in 18k gold hand-coiled strands, and carefully adapts to the curves of the body allowing styles to be worn alone or stacked.


According to Pantone Color Institute, Greenery is, “A refreshing and revitalizing shade, Greenery is symbolic of new beginnings. Greenery is a fresh and zesty yellow-green shade that evokes the first days of spring when nature’s greens revive, restore and renew.” The color automatically makes us think of cascading marsh grasses that blanket the Lowcountry in the spring. Thus, inspiring us to pull together a few pieces that represent the color and the essence of new beginnings.

#HHIStrong: After Hurricane Matthew On Saturday, October 8, 2016 the northern eye of Hurricane Matthew passed directly over Hilton Head Island. Like thousands of their Beaufort County neighbors, the entire Forsythe team heeded orders from South Carolina Governor Nikki Haley and evacuated ahead of the Category 2 storm. The team was spread throughout the inland cities of the southeast; some with family, some with friends and others in hotels. After a one-week, mandatory “hurri-cation”, they returned to find their homes and community different than when they left…a major clean up and restoration effort was underway. With sustained winds of 105 mph, Matthew’s track across Hilton Head seemed to be without rhyme or reason. Homes located side-by-side often 28

Keith, Barb, Andrea and Elaine were Forsythe’s “first responders” tasked with cleaning up the store!

faired completely different results. One home may have had multiple fallen trees causing severe damage, while the other was unscathed. Rumors of tornadoes materializing in different neighborhoods were founded in twisted trees leaning in unnatural directions or just simply snapped in half. Roughly one-week after the hurricane residents began to return. The “all clear” was given, however, power and water were still out and inconsistent in parts of the island. The air was filled with sounds of

chainsaws and falling trees and roads were packed with debris removal trucks, equipped with swinging claws which picked up and moved tons of debris into snowbank-like piles that would line the streets for months. Forsythe’s owner Andrea Bragg, arrived back at the store and found that it had weathered the storm well and sustained very minimal damage. The worst part of the store’s cleanup was the refrigerator, which after six days without power, resembled a science experiment gone wrong. The aftermath of Matthew can still be seen and felt throughout the island, even months later. For most visitors, Hilton Head remains the vacation destination they remember and love. For many locals, it’s the little changes…the familiar natural landmarks and site lines that have adjusted on their commute or the rays of sunshine that now cascade in their living room where it never did before. But all in all we remain #HHIStrong and have learned to embrace all of the newfound sunshine. 29

Gurhan the man is quite simply a passionate, innovative maverick. Get to know Gurhan and expect the unexpected. He is a citizen of the world, a renaissance thinker, a curious explorer, a casual fashionista, a rock music aficionado, an avid traveler, an accomplished photographer, a political junkie, a technology geek, an inventor, a theoretical mathematician, and a great cook. His varied life provides the backdrop against which he designs and each new experience fuels his inspiration for new creations. Gurhan’s Love Story. Gurhan’s initial creations in pure gold quickly drew attention from discerning collectors in Istanbul and travelers to Turkey. An early admirer was an Australian woman living in New York and on vacation in Turkey. She fell in love with his jewelry and sought him out… promptly falling in love with him. Their ensuing passion, romance and love for each other are rivaled only by fairy tales. From the first moment it was evident that Fiona was Gurhan’s soul mate and his rich and diverse lifestyle was mirrored in hers. Together they built a life of adventure and variety which continues to fuel Gurhan’s inspiration for his designs. Today, now his wife, Fiona Tilley is the President and CEO of their company and together they have created a wonderfully successful brand which is the center of their life together. A life seeking out the mysteries of the past, of learning and exploration, of stretching the boundaries of their minds, their experiences and their very lives - a life worth living.




Extraordinary Designs from an Extraordinary Place – A Postcard from Aurora Forsythe Jewelers traveled to Aurora, NY and the home of Mackenzie-Childs which is beautifully situated on a 65-acre former dairy farm overlooking Cayuga Lake in the heart of the Finger Lakes region. The farm’s grounds house the production studio, a SecondEmpire Farmhouse furnished with MacKenzie-Childs designs that is open for tours, and a retail shop filled with tableware, home furnishings, and gifts. Soon after acquiring the farm, MacKenzie-Childs turned the dairy barn into a working production studio where today handmade, hand decorated majolica pottery, furniture, and home furnishings are crafted. The production studio, home to over 100 on-site artisans, includes design, clay molding, firing, painting, furniture and upholstery-making areas. The picturesque farm is also home to a small herd of Scottish Highland cattle, dozens of birds roosting in the Gothic-Revival-style Chicken Palace, a duck pond, a former Cornell horse barn, a 1930’s greenhouse, spectacular and ever-changing gardens and plenty of hay fields.
