Des Moines – If you live in or near Des Moines, the choice of an Iowa jeweler is clear—you gotta go to Joseph’s Jewelers. Voted best jewelry store in Des Moines for several years running, Joseph’s has acquired a peerless reputation for their . One of the oldest family owned jewelry stores in the Midwest, Josephs has been operating since 1871, when its main business came from calibrating watches for men working on the railroad. Since then it has grown into a Des Moines mainstay, with three locations currently open, including one in a local mall. Josephs’ owners, brothers and fourth-generation Iowa jewelers, pride themselves on their company’s dedication to providing only the highest quality diamonds and gemstones set into the most beautiful and well-crafted jewelry settings around.
Cedar Rapids – The city may have been portrayed as a backwater in a 2011 comedy, but in real life, Cedar Rapids is a thriving city with a bustling arts and culture scene. And the “City of Five Seasons” is always prepared for the season of romance, with a plethora of stores carrying jewelry created by local Iowa jewelers. But the best of these Iowa jewelry stores is Siebke Hoyt Jewelers, which bills itself as the place “where Cedar Rapids gets engaged.” What makes Siebke Hoyt so special? First look at the list of brands carried in the fashion and fine jewelry departments: Crown Rings, Pandora, Gabrial, and Hearts on Fire, to name a few. Then there is the customer service—the honesty, helpfulness, integrity, and friendliness exhibited by Siebke Hoyt’s dedicated staff has made it a favorite destination of Iowa engagement ring shoppers from far beyond the city limits of Cedar Rapids.
Davenport – Halfway between Chicago and Des Moines, Davenport is a small city on the banks of the Mississippi River that many people might drive by on the Interstate without a second glance. But for the local citizens, their city is a hidden gem—having been rated both the most affordable metropolitan area in the U.S. and the winner of the City Livability Award. And the shopping isn’t bad either—locally owned businesses strive to provide top-notch service and goods at reasonable prices. One great example of the Davenport ethos is Doland Jewelers, a locally owned Iowa jewelry store that is as much a part of the social and cultural fabric of Davenport as they are the area’s leading supplier of quality fine jewelry. With a wide selection of engagement rings, wedding bands, necklaces, and other fine jewelry pieces, as well as a full-service custom jewelry design and repair team, Doland is a diamond of a store in a hidden gem of a city.
