About Charlemagne Fine Jewelry


Charlemagne Fine Jewelry is a landmark destination in St Paul’s Grand Avenue shopping district.

Owners Charles and Harriet Fogarty opened the doors of the first jewelry store on Grand Avenue in 1974, the same year as the first Grand Old Day celebration. For over 40 years. Charlemagne has been a pioneer in the field of custom jewelry design, offering a wide selection of original jewelry that can’t be found anywhere else in the world.

We are one of the last “old world” jewelers in the country, producing handmade jewelry using the lost wax method of model making and casting. Every step of the jewelry making process happens in-house, ensuring total control over the final product. This allows us to fully express our creative designs, and you will see immediately that our jewelry is different from other stores in town. In fact, the American Gem Trade Association (AGTA) brought national recognition to our designs by including them in an exclusive video of outstanding American Jewelry designers.
