They say diamonds are a girl’s best friend, but rubies, sapphires and emeralds make nice pals, too. Enlarge your social circle by visiting one of Atlanta’s premier jewelry stores.

Palas Jewelers

3209 Paces Ferry Place, No. 10
Atlanta, GA 30305
(404) 846-8122

Palas Jewelers offers a wide range of fine jewelry, including both custom-made pieces and jewelry from the world’s most prestigious designers. Don’t let the refined ambiance and glittering display cases frighten you away, though. In addition to estate jewelry that hovers near the six-figure range, the store also carries pieces that anybody could afford, like a whimsical bracelet made from tiny turquoise skulls. Their full line of services also includes appraisals and watch and jewelry repair.

Icebox Custom Jewelry

3255 Peachtree Road
Atlanta, GA 30305
(404) 842-0266

Like a fine diamond, this family-run business has been slowly polished, shaped and refined over the years. It began as a tiny neighborhood shop selling costume jewelry and then graduated to silver and gold pieces. Now, nearly 35 years later, Icebox Custom Jewelry specializes in designing unique diamond jewelry, including pieces for several famous hip-hop artists.

Solomon Brothers Fine Jewelry

3340 Peachtree Road NE
100 Tower Place, Suite 1700
Atlanta, GA 30326
(404) 266-0266

Named for its owners — three siblings born and raised in South Africa — this shop maintains strong ties with Ivan’s, Howard’s and Anthony’s homeland in order to acquire the finest quality rough diamonds available on the market. In addition to loose stones, you’ll find a wide range of luxurious rings, bracelets, necklaces and earrings, including pieces from dozens of the world’s hottest designers.

Worthmore Jewelers

500-L3 Amsterdam Ave.
Atlanta, GA 30306
(404) 892-8294

A favorite among the laid-back locals, Worthmore Jewelers takes all the stuffiness out of the jewelry-buying process and turns it into a fun adventure instead. There are no suits or prepared pitches here; instead, no-pressure salespeople in casual clothes help customers shop for everything from the perfect engagement ring to a sparkly little piece of cocktail party bling. Shoppers on a budget will appreciate the store’s nice selection of affordable pieces, which range from classic designs to funky modern creations. The shop also hosts occasional art exhibits and other events designed to evoke that friendly neighborhood feel.
