For over 37 years, Forsythe Jewelers has been refining the term “relaxed luxury.” It’s a phrase that doesn’t seem, at first, to make a lot of sense — but those who have experienced the world-class designer jewelry and service offered at Forsythe know that the term perfectly describes the store’s core.

HERITAGE FINE JEWELRY PUTS ITS HEART — AND FAMILY — INTO CRAFTING PERFECT PIECES.

Since the beginning of time, ancient civilizations have been using shells, stones and other items like bones to carefully craft meaningful jewelry and decorative accessories. With the development of metal-working, jewelry became an art form that speaks to the heart, delighting wearers.

The island’s most celebrated gift store is just getting started.

It didn’t take long for Gifted Hilton Head to make a statement on the island. In its first year of operation, it won “Favorite New Business” in Monthly’s Readers’ Choice Awards. The next year, it won “Favorite Gift Shop.”

It did so again the next year. And the year after. In fact, in an unprecedented streak in its category, Gifted Hilton Head has taken home the “Favorite Gift Shop” award every year it has been in business.

Local boutiques and other retail stores suggest gifts that will make your loved ones smile.
