Alabama jeweler launches new jewelry line


Manning Jewelry introduces Islands Collection

The island spirit is thriving at Foley, AL-based Manning Jewelry. Company owner, Glenn Manning has officially launched the tropically inspired Islands Collection, designed, manufactured and sold exclusively at Manning Jewelry.

“During Islands Week we transformed our store into a tropical paradise,” said Manning. “We had hundreds of people visit the store. The staff wore tropical attire and we celebrated with flowers, music, food and fun.”

Islands jewelry comes in many forms. The necklaces, pendants, earrings, bracelets, and rings are one-of-a-kind. Reminiscent of the tropics, the Islands Collection is made of sterling silver and 14 karat gold accented with aquamarine, peridot, diamonds, pearls, coral, larimar, turquoise, lava and other island gems. Each piece has the signature swirl in the Manning logo.

Manning reported the week-long event saw many pieces sold and orders were taken for custom-designed pieces based on customers’ personal island experience.

Manning and Green have plans to expand their vision. “Our customers are looking for something that not everyone has, and Islands is a one-of-a-kind item.  We can incorporate their favorite stone or sea life creature. Any Island fantasy is possible,” he said. “Men’s jewelry is also in the works.”

Manning noted, “Although we are in the early stages, we have plans to take the line nationwide one step at a time. Everyone loves to remember their special vacation or occasion with unique jewelry.”

The Manning name is not new to Foley. A second-generation jewelry store established in 1949, Manning Jewelry has served Baldwin County for 65 years. Manning is an industry and community leader as well as an inventor. He has been recognized in the jewelry industry for innovation in manufacturing and repair, is past Chairman of the Board of the South Baldwin Chamber of Commerce and serves on numerous boards including the Alabama Jewelers Association.
