Downtown Charlotte Amalie offers endless opportunities to discover fascinating one-of-a-kind shops with storied histories.

One local enterprise not to be missed is Chalet D’Or / Get Charmed on Garden Street.

Housed in “The Landmark” at the base of public stairs connecting pedestrians to Government Hill, the white building with classic blue shutters dates back to 1837.

On the ground level, window displays promise a memorable experience.  Step inside to meet proprietor, Sunil Mohanani, and his friendly staff — you won’t be disappointed. The story of Chalet D’Or dates back to 1968 when Sunil’s parents first established the shop on Main Street. His father, Ramesh, a master jeweler, instilled in his son a passion for beauty, quality, and perfection.

Growing up in the business, Sunil began contributing his own talents and creativity to the thriving enterprise. Eventually, his idea to design dainty flip-flop pendants in a variety of colors and designs grew to international acclaim with Sandals For Your Neck. The pendants are fashioned from semi-precious stones including mother of pearl, onyx, rose quartz, tiger eye, lapis lazuli, malachite and more.

Today, in addition to celebrating more than a half-century of success, Chalet D’Or continues the family tradition of designing original jewelry to please a variety of tastes — and budgets. With a warm smile, Sunil said, “All the bling-bling without the cha-ching.”

In addition to Sandals For Your Neck, Chalet D’Or / Get Charmed carries original Larimar jewelry, and a full array of attractive adornments. 

While you are at “The Landmark,” keep in mind Sammiches is located on the upper level of the building. The new eatery was featured in the July 2021 issue of Coconut Post.

Next time you are traveling, should you happen to visit St. Augustine, Florida and notice a bed and breakfast with a Virgin Islands flag waving proudly on a beautifully refurbished white building with blue shutters — circa 1860 — you are not seeing double. The Mohanani family is now operating that three-unit facility in the Sunshine State. Appropriately, the building is called, “The Landmark.”
