I like what I have seen at Baileys in Cameron Village. They are expensive though.

Jackie. If you're reading, mine came from E. B. Horn down the street from the Jewelers Building in Downtwon Crossing. Small world.

I have some jewelry from E.B. Horn too! Another place for RLamothe to try if she can't find anything she likes in The Triangle.

If I were shopping for an engagement ring, I'd definitely go to CMI. They are very friendly and will take as much time with you as you need.

I love Bailey's but its very expensive. They do run a sale now and again!

Also have you been to CMI? We're thinking of stopping by there this weekend. What about Roberto's off of Falls of Neuse?

Sorry, I can't help with jewlery store suggestions here in the Triangle. I bought my wife's engagement ring while I was still back in NJ and did my research in the NYC Diamond District and some idependent NJ jewlers. Ireally loved shopping around for the perfect stone. But if your significant other is also looking to learn as much about diamonds as he can before making the big purchase, I found the following forum to be very useful. He may want to check it out:

Diamonds - Consumer and Expert Forum

and

Engagement Rings, Diamond Rings, and Wedding Bands Forum

Good Luck!

Bailey's in Cameron Village.
I'd say Jolly's over Bailey's but I haven't been to their shop since they left Cameron Village.

Thanks for the tips on jewelry repair. I have some old family pieces that need minor work -- a clasp fixed, a chain repaired, and the like.
