Shop luxe men’s jewelry looks at Bailey’s new high-end watch shop.
They say diamonds are a girl’s best friend… but Bailey’s just-opened men’s jewelry store might be shifting the narrative. Enter Fox & Bailey, a new luxe watch shop situated inside Bailey’s Fine Jewelry in the Village District showcasing watches, men’s jewelry and other unique gifts for gents.
Fox & Bailey is the creative vision of Trey Bailey and his wife Marci, who have continued the family business legacy of “Mama” Bailey into its third generation. An ode to the Bailey history, the shop’s name stems from a previous partnership between Bailey’s and Fox Jewelers back in the 1950s.
At the shop, find high-end men’s and unisex watches (think Rolex, TAG Heuer, Cartier, Patek Phillipe, Omega, Breitling and more), designer men’s jewelry, rare vintage records, hats and even electric bikes, resulting in “an experience, unlike any other anywhere in the country,” says Bailey.
To boot, the men’s boutique offers up a rustic, vintage feel with old finishes; repurposed wood flooring; a custom record player spinning tunes throughout the day—and is even outfitted with a bourbon bar in the back (because who doesn’t want to sip a cocktail while they shop?!). “It gives the feeling of a speakeasy inside the store,” says Bailey’s marketing director Kelly Crisp. “It’s not hidden, but it’s kind of a behind-the-secret-door type of thing.”
And with the addition of this new space, Bailey’s Village District location now touts the title as the largest jewelry store in NC (!) at 13,000 square feet. Certainly, this elegant store is one to watch.
