The simple dream of having a family-owned business sparked this now popular enterprise jewelry store known for its fine jewelry and engagement rings. Entrepreneur Alan Perry moved to Charlotte with two of his brothers for the chance to open his own jewelry store. The Charlotte jewelry store location was the first Perry’s Jewelry Store. Alan’s brother, Ernie, is still the Charlotte, NC location's current owner and operator.
After a successful decade of partnership, Alan Perry began looking for a new business venture. He moved closer to the ocean to open his own “Perry’s Emporium.” The Independence Mall in Wilmington, NC, became home to the new jewelry store branch in 1991. In 2000, Alan moved shop to the beautiful Barclay Commons location, where Perry’s Emporium still sits today.
Since then, this modest store has expanded to become one of the largest jewelry stores in North Carolina. It has also become a favorite place for couples to find the perfect wedding jewelry, such as engagement rings, wedding rings, wedding bands. People also come here for diamond earrings, jewelry repair and appraisal, watch repair, and custom jewelry in Wilmington, NC.
