At Carats Fine Jewelry & Watches we LOVE statement jewelry pieces. That said, we know that for many of our customers they can be a little intimidating.

Giving Back to Girls, Inc.

carats giving back to girls incAt Carats Fine Jewelry & Watches our community is very important to us. Through time and financial contributions we do our best to give to back to causes that are aimed at creating a better future for all of us – both in Sarasota, and beyond. It’s our little way of saying thank you for all of the support and that we’ve received throughout the years. After all, we’re all in this together!

One organization that we are especially passionate about is Girls, Inc. which seeks to inspire girls as young as five years old to overcome challenges, to be strong, to be smart, and to be bold. What’s not to love? In an effort to support them in their recent $100,000 fundraising goal, this past June we launched Diamonds Doing Good where we donated 5% of all June proceeds to Girls, Inc.
