Storied New York City auction house Doyle has opened the doors of its chic new gallery in Charleston at 123 King Street, marking a continuation of Doyle’s strategic and careful expansion to new regions. Founded in 1962 and headquartered in New York City, Doyle operates galleries in Beverly Hills, Palm Beach, and Boston, in addition to regional offices throughout the country. Doyle’s personalized approach has awarded the second-generation family business a loyal and ever-growing network of clients, collectors, estate executors, curators, and dealers throughout the US and beyond.

KDHamptons recently attended the opulent opening of the 2,800 square foot space. Doyle will host consignment days featuring their team of Specialists, thought leadership on a range of collecting topics, and preview exhibitions of property to be auctioned in New York and online to collectors around the globe. Currently the gallery is showcasing an ’80s NYC Auction focused on the art and artists of New York in the 1980s with works by Jean-Michel Basquiat, Keith Haring, Andy Warhol, Kenny Scharf, and more. 

From the start, Doyle assembled a team of leading Charleston-based experts, Julia F. Martin Architects and Glen R. Gardner Landscape Architect, to renovate and rehabilitate the King Street piazza with architecture based on period examples to celebrate and preserve the local landscape.

Also being featured now in Charleston is DOYLE’s Important Jewelry auction. Prepare to be dazzled by high-carat-weight diamond and colored stone rings, exceptional jewelry by Tiffany & Co. and Schlumberger, and fine watches by the world’s most distinguished makers.

In 2023, Doyle tapped Charleston native Emily Grimball Longley to serve as the Regional Representative of Doyle’s Charleston office in addition to her role as VP, Director of Client Strategy. Longley comes to Doyle with fourteen years of experience in the industry as Co- Head of Client Strategy and Director of the 20th and 21st Century Art Department.

Longley said, “It is an honor to be a part of Doyle’s growth in the region and bring its values of expertise, integrity, and service to the Holy City, as one of the world’s premier auctioneers and appraisers of fine art, jewelry, furniture, and much more.” To learn more, visit and contact
