Virginia is considered by many to be the model state. With mild, pleasant weather, great schools, arts centers, and other institutions, and a state legislature that is consistently rated the most effective government in the Western Hemisphere, Virginia seems to offer everything a family might need. If you are already living in Virginia, whether in the metropolitan Richmond area, at the Naval Station of Norfolk, or even near Historic Williamsburg, you might be tempted to settle down here for good. If you have already found the right person to settle down with, all that remains is the proposal and the wedding.
Before you can propose, you will have to find the Virginia jewelry store that carried the engagement ring that is right for you. To make that hunt a little easier, we’ve broken down the top jewelry stores in Virginia in several important categories. Happy Shopping!
Best Mall – Potomac Mills Mall, in Woodbridge, gets our vote for the best outlets in the state. With a collection of jewelry retail giants including Zales, Ultra Diamonds, and Helzberg, Potomac Mills can offer basic Virginia engagement rings at every price point. Plus Potomac Mills is also home to several higher-end stores, including Bailey, Banks, and Biddle, and Ross-Simmons. Several locally-owned Virginia jewelry boutiques make their home inside the mall as well, including the Jewel Box, Sky Jewelry, and Earrings World.
Best Custom Jewelry – Locals swear by the custom jewelry design work of Jay Sharpe, of Jay Sharpe Jewelry in Richmond. With a small shop located in the Carytown area of Richmond, Sharpe has attracted a cult following to his meticulously handcrafted engagement rings and wedding bands. He is perhaps the Virginia jeweler with the most enthusiastic and dedicated fan base, as one-time customers return again and again for all their custom jewelry needs.
Best Appraisals – When purchasing jewelry second-hand or from a small shop, it is advisable to get it appraised by an independent appraiser. In Tyson’s Corner, Virginia, locals turn to Accredited Jewelry Appraisals in nearby Maclean. Accredited is staffed by certified Graduate Gemologists and is known for efficient, professional, and reliable diamond and colored gemstone appraisals. Founded over twenty years ago, Accredited is still the number one choice in the area when it comes to evaluating and appraising loose diamonds, fine jewelry, and antique and estate jewelry.
Best Family-Owned – Only an independent, locally-owned Virginia jeweler can provide the kind of customer service and attention that prompts customers to write Yelp reviews with phrases like “awesome,” and “love you guys.” May Jewelers, in Vienna, Virginia, is just that jeweler. With a wide selection of creative fine jewelry produced by local designers, as well as ethnic and cultural designs, May is a source of fashion jewelry for every stylish person in the area. At the same time, May specializes in traditional, classic engagement rings and wedding bands—and is known for providing the top-quality diamonds in gorgeous, handcrafted settings, all at a reasonable price.
