Shavonne's Providence, RI Factory
Former Providence, RI Headquarters
Our History
   Founded in 1956 by Donald Gist, Shavonne was originally headquartered in Providence, Rhode Island. For 56 years, Providence was the world capital of fashion and costume jewelry manufacturing, with over 1,000 different manufacturers producing every type of jewelry.

   Only 50 or 60 of these were "vertical operations", managing every aspect of design, manufacture, and wholesale distribution. Shavonne was one of these few companies, overseeing the entire process (and gaining valuable experience in all of these areas) in our block-long headquarters at 23 Acorn Street.
