Vanessa Fine Jewelry will work with you and your budget to ensure that you get exactly what you are looking for.

Vanessa Fine Jewelry has been family owned and operated since it first opened its doors as Vanessa's Jewelcrafters at the Sarasota Square Mall in 1999, when owners Don and Vanessa Baugh relocated to the Sarasota/Manatee area from Virginia.

Don Van2In 2001, Don and Vanessa decided to move the store to the Southgate Mall and change the name to Vanessa Fine Jewelry.

In 2005, they opened a second location on Main Street at Lakewood Ranch that would serve Sarasota, Bradenton and the surrounding communities like University Park.

In Lakewood Ranch, they found what was missing from the mall settings, the ability to truly be a part of their community, so they closed the Southgate location to focus on their flagship store.

Buying fine jewelry, especially an engagement ring, can be a very big decision – one that, in some cases, lasts a lifetime.

It is important to have trusted advisor that can guide you through the process of selecting the right cut, color, clarity, and carat weight, not just someone who knows what the 4 Cs stand for and is only trying to get a commission, and move on to the next customer.

Vanessa Fine Jewelry will work with you and your budget to ensure that you get exactly what you are looking for.

Our goal is not to make a commission; we want to make a lifelong customer that will come back to us, time and again, and feel good enough about the purchase and the relationship to recommend us to their friends and family.

Vanessa began her career in fine jewelry with Gordon's Jewelers where she worked for many years and both Don and Vanessa have over 35 years of combined experience in the fine jewelry business.
