The other day, I went shopping for jewelry in Rochester NY. Let me tell you about my experience.
I started out in Webster, one of the Eastern suburbs of the Flower City, and also one of it’s fastest growing shopping districts. Here, all signs point to the highly respected West and Company Jewelry. Designer David Nytch has some astounding designs, first rate service, and a great selection of diamonds, rubies, sapphires, and gold rings, pendants, and earrings.
As I traveled closer to the city, I found myself on Monroe Avenue, long one of Rochester’s premier shopping districts. Here, you will find three jewelry stores that any serious shopper would do well to include in any visit to Rochester. The Source, Rochester’s answer to the mall jewelry stores, Cornell’s, and Mann’s. The latter two are both highly rated custom jewelers offering excellent selection and personal service.
Next, it was over to Park Avenue, just East of downtown Rochester. As I traveled through this eclectic shopping district, full of vibrant shops and a youthful exuberance, I visited several one of a kind shops, including Parkleigh and Walker’s Celtic Jewelry. They both offer a fine assortment of hard to find and unique pieces sure to please the hard to buy for person.
After a visit to each of the area’s malls, Eastview in Victor, Greece Towne in Greece, and The Marketplace in Henrietta, where I found the usual assortment of mall type jewelry outlets, including Littman’s, Kay, and Jared. I found a good selection compared with the big box department stores like J C Penney and Bon-Ton, but still not exactly what I was hoping and searching for.
In the end, I went back to the store that impressed me the most, West and Company in Webster, where I bought my wife a diamond anniversary ring that she adores, at a wallet pleasing price. No matter where you decide to buy, you can’t go wrong with Rochester NY Jewelry Stores.
