The Crystal Coast’s Signature Jeweler



No other jeweler represents a love and appreciation for the Crystal Coast like J. R. Dunn Jewelers. The owners, J. R. and Bonnie, know that living here is as close to living in paradise as you could imagine. The peaceful community, the wonderful people and a very pleasant climate make this a great place to live and work. And it’s this passion for their region that goes into their shop, merchandise and the care they provide to visitors.


No Other Place Like the Crystal Coast

In 1985, J. R. and Bonnie settled in Morehead City. Bonnie had grown up here, but had left to attend college and pursue a career. They knew that there was nowhere else like the Crystal Coast, so they purchased the jewelry store. After successfully providing the region with the best fine jewelry, they opened a second shop in Emerald Isle in 1996.
