The quintessential Southern state, North Carolina has something to offer to everyone—from the hippie culture of Asheville to the history of New Bern to the beaches of Wilmington. No matter where in North Carolina you call home, you may be surprised to learn that North Carolina is one of the best places in the Southeast United States for shopping. That’s right—with its wide variety of malls, independent boutiques, markets, and downtown shopping districts, North Carolina is a gold mine when it comes to shopping. So whether you live in Greensboro or Chapel Hill, you can find the North Carolina engagement rings of your dreams at a local, North Carolina jeweler near you!
Here are some of the best North Carolina jewelry stores in several key categories:
Best Outlet – There are several substantial outlet malls in North Carolina. For bargains on jewelry, try Concord Mills, in Concord, which has outlets of all the country’s favorite jewelry brands, from Kay to Ultra to Helzberg. For outlet versions of your favorite big-city designer names, visit Tanger Outlets in Mebane, which boasts outlets of Saks Fifth Avenue, J. Crew, and Michael Kors, among others.
Best Custom – When it comes to an important piece of jewelry like an engagement ring or wedding band, sometimes only custom design will do. For those occasions, North Carolinians flock to Jewelsmith, a Durham, North Carolina local treasure. Founded by 1976 by a female jewelry designer with a passion for quality craftsmanship and innovative custom design, Jewelsmith’s staff prides themselves on their ability to turn every customer’s custom design dreams into glittering reality.
Best Unique Boutique – Cat Banjo, in Raleigh, North Carolina, is one of the most fun and unique jewelry boutiques around. Half of the store is dedicated to handcrafted earrings, necklaces, and other accessories for women—the other half to pet accessories. Perfect for the woman who loves her dog as much as she loves her wardrobe—and loves her doggie wardrobe most of all!
Best Mall -- Of the many malls in North Carolina, the privilege of being known as the best mall for North Carolina jewelry shopping has to go to Southpark Mall, in Charlotte. While the mall has plenty of shops with inexpensive costume jewelry, like Claire’s, it also has national chainstores, like Kay Jewelers, locally owned boutiques like Francesca’s Collections, and even a Tiffany and Co. for serious engagement ring hunting.
Best Mom-and-Pop – Despite its cutesy name, Charlotte’s Karat Patch is a very serious shopping destination when it comes to finding the perfect engagement ring and wedding band. With seriously devoted customer service, a wide variety of classic and contemporary ring styles, and perks like free cleaning for life, the Karat Patch has won many devoted fans in Charlotte and the surrounding area.
Best Contemporary – In a city known for urban sensibilities and a hippie culture, Minx Boutique, in Asheville, has struck a delicate balance between being a showcase for local designers and an accessible shopping spot for those looking to purchase. The small but well-curated selection of jewelry on display ranges from Verdier to local designers Mani Designs and Palola, with pieces like floral engraved earrings, enamel-inlaid statement necklaces, and hoop earrings adorned with beads.
