There’s nothing cookie-cutter about us at State St. Jewelers. Voted “Guilford County’s Best Jewelry Store” two years-in- a-row, we are a family-owned business that strives to be innovative, fun and original.
The World’s Most Expensive Christmas Cookie
To kick off the Christmas season and showcase our custom jewelry capabilities, we partnered with the best bakery in Greensboro, Maxie B’s, to create ‘The World’s Most Expensive Christmas Cookies’ decorated with precious gemstones and diamonds, including a nine inch Christmas cookie tree priced at $100,000.00. The recipients of any of these decadent cookies, available in a variety of prices, will work with our designers to create the jewelry pieces of their dreams utilizing the gems on the cookies!
Our theme this season is, ‘We’re not a cookie-cutter jewelry store,’ We offer jewelry that’s as unique and special as our customers, in a wide range of prices, and we really love doing custom jewelry for our clients.
To bring these cookies to life, we turned to Greensboro’s perennial favorite bakery, Maxie B’s. The designers at Maxie B’s teamed up with us to create a set of Christmas cookies that are being unveiled in the store on Small Business Saturday, November 25th.
“We get approached all the time with crazy requests, but this opportunity to partner with State St. Jewelers was so exciting and fun,” said Robin Davis, owner of Maxie B’s. “We also love that ten percent of these Christmas cookies’ proceeds will benefit Greensboro Urban Ministries. That makes this even more special.”
Led by Maxie B’s chief cookie designer, Ryan Weber, various designs were explored over several weeks, in addition to dough types and colors. The final cookie collection features two ornament shaped cookies with a melange of colored gems, a Christmas wreath cookie that showcases stunning cultured pearls, a snowflake cookie with vivid diamonds and fine sapphires, and the three dimensional, $100,000.00 Christmas tree cookie, with spectacular diamonds, pearls, sapphires, and an incredible, rare seven carat emerald cut sapphire that shines atop the tree.

All of the cookies will be on display from November 25th to December 24th. Everyone is invited to stop by the store on State Street in Greensboro to see the gem-decorated cookies and also enjoy a free Christmas cookie to eat from Maxie B’s!
