While Boston doesn’t boast a diamond district like New York City, it does have some of the best jewelry stores. Whether your purse strings are very tight or very loose, there is a jewelry store for you in Boston.– Stephanie Geary

Barmakian offers its clientele custom designs without the outrageous price tags. The 100-year-old, family-owned business has large showrooms filled with a huge selection of jewelry. While its large selection is impressive, it’s the fact that Barmakian creates most of its own pieces that makes it one of the best jewelry stores in Boston.

It’s one-stop shopping that makes Longs Jewelers one of Boston’s best jewelry stores. The store, which has a number of locations in and around Boston, has everything from watches to custom-made and designer engagement rings. Family-owned for more than 130 years, Longs has developed a reputation for being a trusted local jeweler and one that many people can afford to go to.

For those who have a taste for the finer things in life – and have the wallet to match – Dorfman Jewelers is the place to go. What makes Dorfman Jewelers one of Boston’s best jewelry stores is its selection of European-cut diamonds and gems. They are also a retailer for well-known, posh names such as Van Cleef & Arpels, and Patek Philippe.

Started in 1839, E.B. Horn’s history goes back almost as far as the city itself. Family-owned and run since its inception, E.B. Horn offers patrons a step back in time and the service that has sadly become a thing of the past. It’s E.B. Horn’s dedication to service and maintaining a repair department for both jewelry and watches on the premises that makes it one of Boston’s best jewelry stores.

Those who are looking for something unique head to Pageo. This store offers jewelry selections from a number of local and international designers, including Garavelli, Crivelli, Kwiat and Misani. But its Pageo’s custom consultations that make it one of Boston’s best jewelry stores.

Editor’s Pick:

I purchased an engagement ring from here in 2007 and two wedding rings in 2008. One of the rings was custom designed and all three were custom crafted. We brought the rings back a couple times for cleanings, and despite offering to pay, have not been charged. While going through the ‘Best Jewelry Stores’ list, I took a look at some recent reviews and found that not much has changed. BRAG offers the same outstanding service, knowledge, laid-back attitude, and most importantly, brilliant craftsmanship that made them our choice in the first place.
