The Owner

Chapter Shop was born in 2017 out of the passion and obsession of its owner, Rachel Thames. After inheriting just a few pieces of fine jewelry from her grandmother years ago, her interest in adornment was born. The idea of tiny pieces of art, created to surpass a lifetime, in which so much meaning and symbolism was poured into, is endlessly intriguing to her. After having several years of experience in the jewelry industry in New York City, Rachel moved to the country and opened Chapter Shop. 

You can find Rachel on the hunt for Chapter Shop, buried in a stack of dusty history books, searching for the perfect piece for a client, or lending her knowledge and services to other antique dealers.

She believes jewelry of any sort can be a time capsule, telling the story of where we've been and who we are. We are just lucky guardians of these eternal heirlooms, treasure keepers for a sliver of their lives.
