No longer in service on the Island, but drive down manatee and you’ll find the new shop just before 26th Street. Take a look at almost any wrist or earlobe on an island resident and more than likely it is adorned with work from the Sterling Anvil – Anna Maria Island’s only local jeweler.   All pieces are handmade on site – the most famous being the “Sterling Anvil link bracelet” – I have one in silver and gold.  They make earrings, bracelets, necklaces, charms, anklets, rings and even have a line of children’s jewelry.

Shopping at the Sterling Anvil Anna Maria Island

I love shopping at the Sterling Anvil and am SO eager for their new location on Gulf Drive to open soon – it looks like they will have even more space to show their wares and for shoppers to browse.    It’s a fool proof place to find presents for almost any occasion and budget – I recently purchased a silver dolphin set which included a necklace charm and earrings for a friend’s daughter’s 11th birthday and I think she hasn’t taken either off since.  Seeing the Sterling Anvil box as she opened her present made her feel like such a grownup!  It was adorable.

The service at the Sterling Anvil has always been excellent.  A few years ago I lost one earring of a more popular design set they sell and they allowed me to purchase just one instead of both – they were really sweet about the situation and helped me out.

I have my eye on a heart shaped charm and plan on running over as soon as their new location opens up – which unfortunately for my shopping addition recovery is practically right across the street from my office.   They also have a lot of nautical themed pieces – turtles, dolphins, sandollars, and starfish and so on.  A perfect beach souvenir from your Anna Maria Island vacation!  Stop in while you are visiting the island – ask around for Carol and I’ll probably be there!

  • Sorry, I have not seen a website with the picture. I would suggest calling the Sterling Anvil and getting a picture emailed to you. If they send it to you please send to me and I will put it on our website. Thanks!!

  • I went to Holmes Beach today and to the Sterling Anvil store. I did purchase a link bracelet, and I think I’m really going to like it.

  • I have bought there many times and i love my bracelts and anklets. I learned recently that they do not make the charms, they buy them from somewhere else and sell them in their shop. I was a little dissapointed at this because I had started a nautical themed anklet and bought a charm evreytime I was out on the Island. But nonetheless, i will still be a frequent shopper because their chains are beautiful and of very high quality. I wear mine all the time, including in the shower and the beach and they are still in perfect condition.

  • I was wondering if there was a place online that I can buy handmade jewelry from Anna Maria Island? I want to get my wife something small as a reminder of our honeymoon. I’m also looking for something not to expensive.

  • There are two places I would suggest where local shops sell jewelry on line. I will obviously have to write a post about this but for now this will at least give you some links that will help. If you have ever been to the public pier in Anna Maria City there is a person that sells home made jewelry there and he has an online store. http://www.pierjewelry.com – For a bit more refined jewelry and alot more selection Creations by L is a good stop to grab something. http://www.creationsbyl.com/index.html – Good luck grabbing something and for that matter I better start on my holiday shopping! 🙂

  • Yeah, unfortunately they had to shut their doors at the beginning of May. I’m not sure if you’re a local, but according to their website they will still be attending all the art shows that come and go on the Island to sell off their remaining inventory. So that should be good news for you if you had your heart set on something from there!

    Sorry you missed it 🙁
