While the months between Thanksgiving and New Year’s may be prime engagement season in many states, the state of Alaska operates on its own timetable. Most couples here tend to get engaged in early spring, as the land and our lives begin to thaw out and it becomes easier to get out and about. If you’ve been thinking about popping the question to your Alaskan girl, whether your idea of a dream proposal is a picnic under the Northern Lights or a snowmobile ride through the wilderness, your journey down the aisle begins with a trek to your local Alaska jewelry store.
And believe it or not, Alaska jewelers know ice! Here are the top Alaska jewelry stores in every category:
Best Authentic Alaska Engagement Ring: If you are looking for a piece of jewelry that is true to Alaska’s spirit and culture, you have to try Alaska Mint, the store of the official US Mint of Alaska. Although the store specializes in antique and rare gold coins, they also have a sizable collection of truly unique jewelry pieces, including rings set with raw gold nuggets, authentic gold-laced quartz, antique gold coins and other one-of-a-kind materials. Some items can be expensive, but these are jewelry items you literally will not find anywhere else.
Best Classic Jewelry: If you are looking for a traditional engagement ring in Alaska, you have to steer clear of the tourist-trap souvenir stores and check out Fifth Avenue Jewelers, in Anchorage. For over 40 years, Fifth Avenue has been offering New-York-City-style fashion and elegance to Alaska jewelry-seekers, all with the kind of small-town service and friendliness you would expect from a locally-owned shop. In addition to a full line of classic engagement rings, wedding bands, and fine jewelry, Fifth Avenue also stocks pieces created by local Alaska jewelers and artisans.
Best Jewelry Gifts: Bringing Alaska jewelry gifts back to friends and family in the Lower 48? Don’t waste your time at the overpriced tourist traps—visit local favorite The Rusty Harpoon. This local Anchorage favorite, located very close to the starting point of the Iditarod sled dog race, features fine jewelry inspired by local tribal legends and symbolism. A carved sterling silver bracelet with a raven and eagle represents love and the union of two souls, while a gold ring with an image of a wolf represents healing. Other pieces feature local materials like ivory, fossilized whalebone, jade, and quartz.
est Designer Jewelry: Famous-name designer jewelry emporiums may not have set up shop in Alaska, but that doesn’t mean that Alaskans have to be deprived of the best in designer engagement rings, and they don’t have to pay exorbitant shipping fees to have them delivered either. Local Anchorage jeweler Michael’s Jewelers can satisfy the most demanding jewelry shopper with his impressive inventory of engagement ring settings by the likes of Verragio, Tacori, Ritani, and Scott Kay. Each of these quality settings can be finished to your specifications and set with a top-notch Hearts on Fire™ diamond, for a ring that will shine brighter than the Northern Lights.
