Lobster Claws. We should have listened to you sooner. We had at least a hundred calls before we made the first one. After we made our first small and large lobster claws set with Maine tourmaline, sales took off and we just kept making more.
Being in lobster country you’d think we’d know the answer, but if you ask 10 Portland residents you’ll likely get 10 different recommendations.
There are too many variables to crown “the best” – toasted bun or plain roll, butter or mayo, simple or seasoned, warm or cold?
We offer our Cross staff favorites (most in the Portland area):
If you have a favorite Maine lobster roll destination, it will always be with you as you wear our Blue Sapphire Lobster Claw Pendant.
If You Love Blue
Many sapphires are simply too dark. Often to see the blue in these sapphires you’d need to stand under intense direct light. In its finest qualities, a blue sapphire should be blue under normal life lighting conditions – home, office, and outdoors; not just under the bright showcase lights of a jewelry store.
Blue Sapphires Chosen One at a Time
Most jewelers prefer dark sapphires because they are easier to source and easier to acquire a consistent repeatable color. Our sapphire jewelry starts with the selection of the individual gem. We choose gems one at a time, and evaluate them under different lighting conditions to find the best performing sapphires. The result is a gem which is bright, blue, and brilliant – everything you want in a sapphire. This process takes more time and it results in the best, brightest, and truest bluest sapphire jewelry.

Our extended ninety days, for a small business, is almost unheard of. Truth is, we shop for gifts too, and rather than scrambling at the last minute and feeling the tension of time, we like this more relaxed approach. We wish everyone did something like this… it would be a kinder, gentler world.
