Trice Jewelers grand opening

Project (Denver, Colorado)

In Denver, Colorado Trice Jewelers, a 50 years family business opened a new 4500 square foot location. They requested a mix  of traditional and contemporary American style design, warm and cozy.

NK created an elegant new store design characterized by spectacular diamond island in the center of the store with LED lighting in case and above. The materials and finishes included high-end cherry wood veneer, curved metal and glasses, and LED lights.

The grand opening  celebration was held at their new store at The Streets at SouthGlenn on Arapahoe & University.
