Why shop at an engagement ring store?

Although buying engagement rings online has become increasingly common these days, when it comes to a large purchase like your engagement ring, it’s hard to beat having the in person experience you get at a reputable jewelry store.

You can actually see the rings and get a better feel for what you want. You can ask questions and learn about what goes into picking the right engagement ring. 

How do you know what type of metal will be best for you? What the heck are cut, carat, color, and clarity, and which ones are actually important? These are all common questions that your store sales person can gladly help you with.

Not to mention the excitement of actually looking through the options and coming home that day with the perfect one you know will make your partner smile from ear to ear!

What to look for in an engagement ring store

When considering an engagement ring stores there are a few factors that come into play that can make or break your experience:

  • Customer service
  • Reputable store
  • Good selection
  • Sustainable sourcing options
  • Post sale services (For example, can you return for routine cleanings? What is the return policy? Do they perform repairs in-house or ship them out?)

And while these things are definitely important, they are also pretty generic. 

So what specifically did I consider when choosing the stores in this list? 

How I chose the jewelers on this list!

Well, I started by scouring the internet. I looked for any and all sources of information that I could find indicating people’s preferred jewelry stores in the Denver area. 

I looked at local magazine 5280’s Top of the Town Readers’ Choice and Editors’ Choice picks for jewelers over the past five years. 

I also looked at how often people searched on Google (using a proprietary database I have a subscription to) for these stores, giving me an indication of their popularity.

And finally, I looked at the Google reviews and websites of the top contenders to get an idea of what the experience would be like with each of these stores. I only included those with very high review ratings.

After all this research, I feel very confident in the final five chosen here!

Please note: This list is in no particular order, and the stores I chose in no way sponsored or affected what was written in this post!

Abby Sparks Jewelers

Abby Sparks is another local jeweler, and all their jewelry is handmade and custom designed in Denver. They are by appointment only and don’t offer pre-made inventory, but rather work with each customer individually to create something you will love.

Another cool thing about Abby Sparks? They offer a “loaner ring” that you can propose with. It’s made with a cubic zirconia solitaire, and the cost of the loaner is essentially a deposit for the real ring you eventually purchase. If you are ready to propose but are not sure what type of ring your partner will love, this is a great option!

Abby Sparks has been voted Top of the Town by both readers and editors several times over the past five years and has great reviews on Google.
