While it may be located far from the couture fashions of New York and the glitz and glamour of Los Angeles, Minnesota’s Twin Cities region has some of the best shopping opportunities in the region, especially when it comes to luxury goods like designer clothing and fine jewelry. Minnesota jewelry stores range from small, family-owned engagement ring shops to eclectic boutiques featuring the finest contemporary and trendy jewelry made by local Minnesota jewelers. Here are some of the best Minnesota jewelry stores in several important categories:
Best Artisan – The Twin Cities, with its plethora of locally owned and operated shopping options, has not one, but two, winners in this category. First is Bibelot, a Twin Cities mainstay with four locations in the region. Bibelot is known for its eclectic collection of fine jewelry crafted by national and local artists, including Patricia Marx and Stacey Johnson. The second winner is Cliché, a cleverly-named Uptown boutique whose selection of creative and inventive jewelry pieces is anything but clichéd. Choose from exotic pieces featuring unusual metals, gemstones, and materials.
Best Affordable – Looking for the handcrafted-boutique style without the price tag? I Like You, a Minneapolis jewelry boutique, has a new business model that allows local Minnesota jewelers and artists to showcase their wares at affordable prices. Jewelry and art items are offered on a consignment basis, allowing the artist to choose a fair price and giving the customer a chance to purchase a genuine handmade item without breaking the bank. Plus, the designs, by the likes of Potpourri, Witt & Lore, and Lefthand Originals, are out of this world!
Best Art Fairs – One of the best ways to buy genuine Minnesota jewelry is by visiting one of Minnesota’s famous summer art fairs. Located in Edina, Powderhorn, Uptown, and Highland, these juried fairs feature many of Minnesota’s best artists, craftsmen, and jewelers. You can find everything from an oil painting to a hand-woven blanket to a genuine, Made-In-Michigan engagement ring at these fairs.
Best Contemporary – If you are looking for a marriage of art and design, it can’t get better than the gift shop inside a modern art museum, and the Walker Shop inside Minneapolis’ Walker Art Center is just that. With a refined showcase of local jewelers’ best work that incorporates the modern design sensibility, the Walker Shop is the perfect place to find that one-of-a-kind piece that you will be proud to wear for years to come. Plus, an annual Jewelry Mart offers jewelry lovers a chance to meet the artists and jewelers and buy pieces directly from their favorites.
Best Engagement Rings – When it comes to buying an engagement ring, most people, especially Minnesotans, are looking for simple, classic styles, high-quality but affordable diamonds, and honest, friendly customer service. And that’s why so many of them turn to Continental Diamond, a Minnesota mainstay that has been providing Minnesotans with their engagement rings and wedding bands for years. Fans rave about the friendly, helpful sales associates, the affordable cleaning and repair services, and the deep inventory of diamonds and settings at every price point.
