NEW: Want to buy some $955,000 earrings in Wellington?


A new location for a Wellington jewelry store is now open in the shopping plaza on the northeast corner of South Shore and Forest Hill boulevards.

Provident Jewelry’s Dream Factory in Wellington had its grand opening Thursday night after construction started last summer. Invitees were treated to hors d’oeuvres, music and a live painting performance — not to mention a look at the jewelry itself.

Provident opened more than a year ago on the other side of the plaza, but the new space is larger and features a signature clock tower.

A silent auction benefited the Sport Horse Research Foundation. Having that community element is important to Provident, said Geoff Fear, managing partner of Provident’s Wellington store and a 15-year resident of the village. “We’re about the community and the experience,” he said. “Our customers are really our friends and family.”

A modern chandelier hangs over the main showroom inside Provident, with a separate dark-paneled watch showroom and bar to the side. While some pieces will be within the everyday person’s reach, others are tailored to a more luxury market with prices stretching above $1 million.

Take the $955,000 pair of diamond-and-emerald Chopard earrings. With eight large emeralds, more than three dozen massive diamonds and a titanium setting, these stunners are kept under lock and key.

Provident Jewelry at 11924 Forest Hill Blvd. #1 in Wellington is open from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday-Friday, 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday and closed Sunday.
