Sterling Anvil is a true GEM on Anna Maria Island! – Now located in Bradenton

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!
