THE QUEENS’ JEWELS
Candice Cherry, was born and raised in Chesterfield. She calls herself the “chief jeweled officer (CJO)” of The Queens’ Jewels, a collection of jeweled wine glasses. Cherry is aided by her mother-in-law, Janine Vires, a 30-year Chesterfield resident and the “chief jeweled financial officer (CJFO).” Candice and Janine opened The Queens’ Jewels in November of 2014. Candice is a stay-at-home mom and Janine is retired after owning several businesses.
“The Queens’ Jewels was founded on the idea that wine glasses should not be plain and boring, but beautiful and full of sparkle to compliment life’s beauty,” Cherry says. “These glasses are created to represent individual personalities, moments in time, and serve as great conversation pieces.” Each piece is branded with their wine charm logo. They also customize their jewels to fit the glass accordingly.
“Our five-year plan is to have expanded across the 50 states and possibly tap into the international market,” Cherry explains. At present, they have customers in 24 states and Canada. The pair says it’s important to give back to the local community, and they’re proud to support Friends of Kids with Cancer, Cardinal Glennon Children’s Hospital and the Susan G. Komen Foundation. They can be followed on Facebook at Facebook.com/TheQueensJewels and on [email protected]_Queens_Jewels for their upcoming event schedule. Their jeweled wine glass collection can be purchased in Chesterfield at The Tack Trunk and Polka Dot Peonies, (online only) and in Ellisville at Veritas Gateway to Food & Wine, as well as Country Outfitter (a national online site).
