Diamond Jewelry Shopping in Houston
Whether you are looking for a funky pair of earrings to wear on vacation, a glamorous diamond bracelet for a black-tie affair, or simple stud earrings for everyday wear, it's no surprise to learn that it is easy it is to find fine jewelry options in the fourth largest city in America. And of course, most stores offer a good selection of diamond engagement rings.
While Houston may not have an international reputation for fine jewelry shopping that Los Angeles, New York, Paris and London do, it is still possible to find everything world-class diamonds, gems and jewelry. Many first time Houston diamond engagement ring shoppers actually feel overwhelmed by the variety of stores and boutiques selling loose diamonds and every kind of jewelry imaginable. That is why many shoppers today do at least some research online to learn about products and the stores selling them.
The Houston Diamond District is not as extensive or concentrated as the Diamond District in New York, but it still offers an array of diamond jewelry stores. Consisting of a collection of office buildings and shops in the Westheimer/Richmond neighborhood just west of the Galleria, this area is home to many independent jewelers, in addition to small trading companies (so called "wholesalers") and well known chain stores. If you are looking for commercial diamond or gold jewelry at lower price points, shops within the Houston Diamond Exchange a little further west might be worth a try.
The Houston Galleria is known throughout Texas as one of the finest shopping establishments in the entire region. Nearly every designer in the world—from Chanel to Bottega Venneta — is represented in the three floors of premier shopping. Some of the finest diamonds in Houston are housed here—most notably in the elegant De Beers boutique, which offers some of the most extravagant and pricey diamonds in Houston. If you are looking for designer engagement rings in Houston, you’ll find Bulgari, Cartier and David Yurman in the Galleria, as well as one of the largest Tiffany and Co. locations in Texas. But the Galleria is not only for the jet set—if you are working with a more modest budget, the Galleria also houses a more accessible selection of jewelry stores, from Gordon’s Jewelers to Ben Bridge.
