Our experience in the jewelry business spans over 30 years
Mr. Mervyn Drakes first started as a jewelry stock manager in a local jewelry chain in Nassau Bahamas “Jewels by the Sea.”
From there, Mr Drakes married Vyrna Brenee Major and moved to Abaco where he for 9 years presented a jewelry show at a local time share resort “Abaco Towns By the Sea” which was very well received by the guests. Many a tourist would delight at how Mr Drakes would eloquently explain how jewelry was made in the Bahamas using indigenous materials such as conch shells, corals, and coconut shell.
Afterward, he would give the guests an opportunity to win a beautiful island necklace by guessing the number of beads or coming closest to the number; truly delightful times!
Continuing from there, Mr Drakes moved on to open his own fine jewelry store which he operated for some 17 years in Marsh Harbor. Clients delighted to hear his unique radio promo advertising Jewels Gems and More! ... in a resounding voice. The store was very successful; some of the services offered were full jewelry repair, watch repair and custom jewelry. Because of the global recession, the jewelry operation was scaled back.
However, when the economy rebounded and the opportunity presented itself, default mode kicked in; this resulted in the brain-child “Exotic Treasures.”
“Exotic Treasures Abaco” is the exclusive Distributor of the Tuscany fine leather Brand and accessories in the Bahamas. They also carry fine jewelry, scarves, perfumes, and our own creation of ‘exotic scents’ - a unique perfume blend selected and made by Mr Drakes himself!
