A Few Words
Therese Crowe has mastered a one-of-a kind jewelry art. Her designs are inspired by her love of architectural form and nature's influence. The creative blend of bright white platinum, high karat yellow gold, and sterling silver, combined with beautiful diamonds, spectral colored stones, quirky geodes, fossils, and ancient roman coins is truly spectacular. Every piece is personally created in her studio in Chicago, Illinois. Therese, fondly known as Terry, describes her style as “timeless, decadent, and wearable”.
Crowe perfected her skills by while attending Chicago’s Art Institute, went on to study at the Gemological Institute of America where she earned her degree as a Graduate Gemologist. She has been awarded Jewelry Designer of the year by the Women’s Jewelry Association. Crowe has been fortunate to apprentice with various skilled jewelers across the country and travels extensively to seek out rare and interesting gems from around the world.
Her business, Therese Crowe Design, LTD was established in 1991, in Chicago’s "Jeweler's Row". After that, she opened her boutique store in Lake Forest, Illinois. Crowe believes her business thrives on client satisfaction and their addiction to the unique versatility of her jewelry. She owes the success and growth of her business over the last 30 years to her loyal customers and heartfelt referrals.
Jewelry’s Latin word origin is ‘Jocale’, meaning plaything, fun, and sport. Please come visit Terry’s boutique in charming Lake Forest to experience a truly fun, relaxing, and unique shopping experience.
