Let’s face it: when most of us think “jewelry store”—particularly “high-end jewelry store”—we don’t think cozy, comfy, warm, and fuzzy. We think stuffy, smug, uptight, and uppity salespeople ready to pounce the moment we begin browsing. You need to ditch those snobby old stereotypes and head for R&M Woodrow Jewelers, a family-owned “gem” since 1985, for your next purchase. Here, you’ll find beautiful jewelry and helpful, friendly, experienced (and okay, sometimes warm and fuzzy) salespeople eager (not pushy) to assist (not hover over) you. Don’t know a karat from a carrot? The staff here will answer all your questions—and not make you feel stupid for asking. They’ll also expertly engrave your purchase, ship it to you free and insured by UPS, and take it back (if not engraved) if you’re not satisfied—no questions asked.
Best Service (2008)
Best Designer Jewelry Collection (2010)
There’s bling, there are baubles, and then there’s the really good stuff. For seriously beautiful jewelry from the most prestigious designers, there’s Woodrow Jewelers. Picture an assemblage of mini-boutiques showcasing the collections of internationally acclaimed designers such as Roberto Coin, Marco Bicego, Judith Ripka, Leslie Greene, and Kwiat. Then imagine some of their more stunning pieces gracing your—or your loved one’s—neck, wrist, and/or finger. We’re dreaming about the 18-karat gold cuff timepiece handcrafted by famed Italian jeweler Buccellati. (It comes with a $39,900 price tag—we dream big.)
Best Family Jewelry Shop (2011)
It’s a family affair over at R&M Woodrow Jewelers, with brothers Robert and Michael Woodrow running the gem of a boutique together. And, when you go there, they treat you like family, too, keeping no secrets as they freely—and patiently—share their knowledge of the ultra-high-end jewelry lines they represent in the store. Believe us, with names like Buccellati, Aaron Basha, Baccarat, Roberto Coin, Judith Ripka, and Breitling, this is a family you’re going to want to be a part of.
