Few places do big, bold gems better than Provident Jewelry. The boutique focuses largely on opulent, statement-making pieces, and half of the sprawling Naples storefront (they also have locations in Fort Myers and Palm Beach) is devoted to their most singular, high-value treasures. When we went looking for the grandest jewels in town, we knew to look no further than Provident’s ‘Dream Factory’ showroom, which is fittingly decked out with a posh bar for private clients to sip Champagne while browsing the brilliant vitrines.

Artfully walking the line between classic and contemporary, Provident’s collection is filled with precious adornments you’ll want to pass down. The jeweler has a knack for Art Deco-inspired designs that, with their bold shapes and luscious gemstones, feel fitting today—and forever.

Provident stands out for its cachet of exclusive designs from brands like Buccellati, Chopard and Cartier. The jeweler is the only one in North America to carry Gucci’s Flora fine jewelry collection.

Collectors clamor for pieces from famed 1920s jeweler Raymond C. Yard—especially his whimsical brooches.

Art Deco style balances intricacy and symmetry, allowing ornate jewels to keep a subdued cool. Chopard 36mm Happy Diamonds watch with 5.93 carats of diamonds, including seven of the brand’s iconic ‘dancing diamonds,’ and Happy Icon earrings containing mother-of-pearl inlay and two, 0.20-carat floating diamonds.
