It would not be a surprise to feel like you should blink at the flashing camera, or be asked “Who are you wearing?” when you stroll down the red carpet at Royalty & Hollywood Jewelry®.
Our entrepreneurial spirit and unending desire to one day own our own business, was always at the forefront of our thoughts. While traveling, we quite unexpectedly stumbled upon an idea that would change our lives forever and enable our heartfelt dream to finally become a reality. As we strolled hand in hand, my sweet husband said to me, “Are you thinking what I am thinking?” and
I excitedly answered “Yes… I most definitely am!” The rest is history and on that very day several years ago, Royalty & Hollywood Jewelry® was born.
We knew we could blend our respective backgrounds and talents to greatly enhance our boutique. So with Gary’s exceptional operations, advertising and organizational skills coupled with my flare and passion for decorating and creative merchandising, we immediately went to work. Together we shared a vision of grandeur, elegance and sophistication of royalty, yet, the glamour and
glitz of old Hollywood.
For six months we spent countless hours combing Naples, Florida for the perfect location. We worked together like the tongue and groove of a fine piece of furniture, attending to each and every detail. Gary attended to every detail of the start-up operations of the business while I poured over fabrics, colors, display accessories and other finite details. Together we researched
and gathered reams of information and history about each person represented in our boutique. We must admit… our results far exceeded our own expectations. We opened our doors in October, 2009 and were surprised and amazed by the reactions of our new customers. “The most beautiful store on Fifth Ave,” “What an unusual concept… like a museum with the most
exquisite replicated jewelry,” and “one of the most elegant boutiques I have ever seen…my favorite new store,” were just a few of the comments we heard over and over again.
Gary and I love sharing with our patrons the beautiful replicated jewelry and the history or story of each piece. We love helping women feel beautiful and special. The look on their faces when we adorn them with the most elegant, yet affordable jewelry, is simply priceless. You can imagine our amazement when we glance through our guest book of the hundreds of patrons
who have visited us from all but nine countries throughout the world. We have forged special relationships with our customers and are honored to be considered a ‘destination’ for family and friends who visit from afar. We continue to appreciate and cherish the customers who have become our dear friends and have always been a strong source of support and encouragement to us. In
the fall of 2009, Royalty & Hollywood Jewelry® was co-founded by two people who shared a dream and with careful planning, perseverance and passion we made that dream a reality.
With heartfelt thanks to each of you,
Nancy & Gary Bogan
