Shopping for gifts for those who could not come with you on your vacation is a fun part of the vacation experience. Picking up items that you need while on vacation. i.e. calamine lotion, toothbrushes, etc. could be necessary. Selecting the perfect reminder of your wonderful vacation will help you relive your experiences. These are but a few of the reasons to visit The Sterling Rose gift store at TRML.
The Smoky Mountain area has been a source of many interesting artifacts including gold and precious stones. Franklin is the Gem Capital of the US. Franklin’s gem mines offer tourists the opportunity to discover a vast array of gems. Charlotte is well known for its gold mines and was even a mint for American coins. The love of these precious materials can be appreciated in our Tuckasiegee River Mountain Lodge Gift Store.
We offer you jewelry items with precious stones set in gold and silver. Some items have been handcrafted at the lodge and in the area, but most come from other sources so that we can offer you quality jewelry at below market pricing. Gemstones are the preferred design element, however antique costume jewelry and other unique pieces can be found in the store as well.
