With Valentine’s Day right around the corner, there has never been a better time to acquaint yourself with the best locally-owned jewelers in your area. Here in Maryland, there are so many born-and-bred Maryland jewelers with every kind of jewelry shop imaginable, for every taste and budget, that there is no need to settle for a generic bauble at a national chain store in a mall. Here are some of the gems of the Maryland jewelry scene:
Best Luxury – With locations in both Pikesville and Towson, Radcliffe Jewelers is the ultimate name in luxury jewelry in the Baltimore area. The fine jewelry department boasts the likes of H. Stern and Bulgari; the bridal jewelry selection is stocked with Simon G. and Henri Daussi, and the luxury watch collection is perhaps most impressive of all—with timepieces by everyone from Cartier to Harry Winston to Movado. Plus, Radcliffe offers many perks and conveniences, like online shopping, registries, and jewelry and watch repair.
Best Contemporary – For some of us, jewelry is art, and those are the people who will find their jewelry nirvana at Fire and Ice. A Maryland-based chain with 12 locations, Fire and Ice is an incredibly unique jewelry boutique that takes the natural world and its wonders as its inspiration. You can find an incredible pendant necklace set with a fossilized piece of amber, a sculpture made from natural crystal formations, and a set of bangles made using ancient metalworking techniques. It’s the perfect place to find that one-of-a-kind treasure for yourself or for someone special.
Best Engagement Rings – Once upon a time, each small village must have had its own small jewelry shop, with the kind and wise jeweler carefully crafting each piece of jewelry by hand. That tradition, whether real or not, lives on at The Village Gem in Nottingham. Tom is that kindly jeweler, dispensing wisdom and advice while both buying and selling affordable fine jewelry. With the kind of neighborly customer service that you rarely see anymore, and perks like free diamond cleaning, The Village Gem is truly a hidden gem of its neighborhood. Best Boutique – In almost 25 years in business, Everett Designers of Fine Jewelry in Clarksville has built up a cult following for their unique take on traditional fine jewelry design. Recently voted one of Howard County’s best jewelers in Columbia Magazine, Everett offers untraditional spins on the classic forms and styles found in fine jewelry. Pendant necklaces are set with intriguing, abstract designs, engagement rings are asymmetrical and feature trilliant-cut diamonds, and most jewelry pieces are set with unusual, exotic stones like black opals.
Best Costume Jewelry – Locally-owned boutique Milagro, in the Medfield area, is your number one source for trendy, affordable costume jewelry. The South-of-the-border vibe in this boutique extends from the brightly painted exterior, to the wide selection of jewelry pieces made using traditional materials, like silver and turquoise, to the Frida-Kahlo-inspired accessories. Many of the jewelry items are made by local Maryland jewelers, including some handcrafted by the store’s owner.
