A few years ago, it looked like the once-great city of Detroit, and the state of Michigan with it, was headed into a sharp decline. But in 2012, the car industry is revving itself up again, downtown Detroit is turning into a thriving creative community, and the state of Michigan is back on the map. In fact, couples and young families are looking at the affordable housing and newly emerging industries in Michigan as a great reason to relocate to the Great Lakes State themselves.
If you already live in Michigan, you would be forgiven for not thinking that retail centers in cities like Detroit, Troy, or Grand Rapids would have much to offer in terms of high-end shopping. But what Michigan jewelry shops lack in internationally-renowned designer boutique names they make up for in small, family-run shops with the kind of all-American friendliness and customer service you won’t find anywhere else. Michigan jewelers are renowned for their integrity and dedication to bringing fine, quality engagement rings and wedding bands to their customers, at affordable prices.
Here are a few of the best jewelers in several major Michigan cities and towns:
Detroit – In a city that is rapidly renewing and reinvigorating itself, several new jewelry shops have opened that highlight the skills and creativity of Michigan jewelers. Chief among these is Naka, a Ferndale independent boutique that carries jewelry, gifts, and accessories made by local artisans. Another focus-on-Michigan jewelry shop is City Bird, an Etsy shop turned bricks-and-mortar store in Detroit that carries unique jewelry and home goods that celebrate the city of Detroit itself. For a more upscale, fine jewelry selection, Detroiters love locally-owned Facets of Todd Mitchell, a small boutique with a handpicked selection of diamond jewelry, engagement rings and wedding bands.
Ann Arbor – This college town has always had a vibrant downtown retail area, anchored by the campus of the University of Michigan itself. Although fine jewelry is not necessarily on a college student’s budget, funky local gift shops like Middle Earth and Peaceable Kingdom cater to the stylish co-ed with a selection of bracelets, rings, necklaces and earrings made by local Michigan jewelers and artisans. For higher-end fine jewelry, including an impressive collection of estate and vintage jewelry and incredible custom design work, visit Abracadabra Jewelry & Gem, in downtown Ann Arbor.
Grand Rapids – Several family-owned and operated jewelers have been serving the Michigan engagement ring needs of Grand Rapids citizens for decades, and those citizens would rather return to these stalwart Michigan jewelry shops than patronize an anonymous mall chain. Preusser Jewelers is known for their extremely helpful and knowledgeable staff, while Daniels carries a wider variety of jewelry, accessories, and women’s apparel. Almassian is known for an extensive selection of bridal jewelry, loose diamonds, and watches for both men and women.
Troy – Located just an hour’s drive north of Detroit, Troy is a pleasant suburban town with a thriving retail center. Troy is also home to Michigan’s only store location of famed jewelry emporium Tiffany and Co., but that is not its only claim to Michigan jewelry fame. Beloved Troy-owned fine and fashion jewelry shops include Diamond Vault of Troy, Collins and Curry Jewelry, Krandall Sidney and Sons, and Astrein’s Fine Jewelry.
