The most unique jewelry stores in America

There are thousands of places to shop for jewelry, but only a few stores feel like magic when you walk in. They're owned and staffed by friendly, highly experienced people who know how to help you find exactly what you're looking for.

These stores carry jewelry that doesn't look like what you see in a mall chain store. Some of these stores have small, curated collections. Some carry antique jewelry. All these stores carry jewelry designed and handcrafted by artists. 

This is the beginning of a list of these special jewelry stores.
It's a work in progress (and is currently heavily weighted towards stores on the coasts). 

Help me make this an awesome list! Tell me about your favorite store in the comments below and I'll add it.
