What it is:

At the intersection of Hope Street and Rochambeau Avenue, this silver shop sits diagonally across from Henry Bear’s Park (and a second location can be found in Wickford, too).

What makes it a Rhody Gem?

The largest direct importer of silver jewelry in the area, Green River Silver Co. has been an East Side mainstay since 1999. “We take pride in offering a variety of choices for different styles and budgets,” says Amie Silva, assistant buyer. This includes earrings embedded with amber resin, Bohemian moonstone necklaces made by a RISD alumna, turquoise cuffs by Navajo makers, the Exclusive Rhode Island Jewelry Collection, and everything else you can imagine. Jewelry-savvy staff are happy to help customers find something specific or offer advice if you’re looking for the perfect gift for a loved one. Bonus gem points for free gift wrapping and a card with a description of where the piece was made, adding the finishing touches that make the experience special, and for each sale, Green River makes a donation to Save the Bay.

Green River Silver Co. 735 Hope Street, Providence • 621-9092
