A&C Jewelry Story
A&C Jewelry first got its start decades ago when owner and founder, Craig Burgess, was a child. Craig enjoyed looking for gemstones and collecting coins throughout his childhood. Over time that hobby turned into a passion, which eventually became a career.
Craig began designing custom jewelry more than 40 years ago. Since then, he has designed jewelry for numerous fashion designers and collections. He created custom designs for New York City fashion shows, such as Zang Toi’s, whose work has been featured in Vogue, Vanity Fair, Time, Newsweek and The New York Times. Craig designed intricate gold belts, beautiful necklaces, bracelets and rings for Zang Toi, who has also dressed Hollywood celebrities such as Elizabeth Taylor, Fergie, Farrah Fawcett, and Sharon Stone.
After developing a reputation for his creative jewelry designs, Craig began to work in television with the Shop at Home Network, where he worked side by side with QVC host, Lisa Robertson.
Craig has also created custom jewelry pieces for celebrity figures, includin Dina Eastwood during the filming of Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil. His greatest pleasure is designing jewelry for his local community, neighbors, friends, and family.
Craig believes that every piece of jewelry is unique and has its own personal history. But above all, Craig feels that education is the most important asset one can have in order to make informed purchasing decisions. So, if you are interested in buying or selling jewelry, Craig is always happy to help answer any questions you may have.
Above all, we at A&C Jewelry want to make sure that you are able to walk away with your ideal item, whether for yourself as an investment piece of for a loved one. We’re not just in the business of creating one-of-a-kind jewelry – we’re also in the business of creating unforgettable moments.
