Portobello Jewelers was twice voted the best jewelry store in Newport by Newport Life Magazine. It was started in 1982 by two sisters, Sharon Gerlach and her sister Janet Curran, a graduate Gemologist. They have two locations. This store, at 211 Goddard Row in the Brick Market, and the other on Bellevue Avenue in the Traverse Building. They are well-known for their exquisitely designed pieces, some of which are their own and some from other contemporary designers. At estate sales in Newport, they purchase antique pieces, as well bring in unique pieces from their buying trips to Europe. It is easy to walk to the shop from the parking lot next to the Brick Market.
