Although it is true that diamonds are our first love, a close second is our penchant for colored gemstones. Colored gemstones have played an important role in the myths and legends of history. We are enthralled by their storied past, which you can see in our instore coloured collection. Many colored gemstones have been treasured since the beginning of time, while others have only been discovered in recent history. From rings and pendants to bracelets and earrings, if you can’t find a colored gemstone you love at Ben Adams Jewelers, we’ll search the world to find one for you.

Fine diamond jewelry remains the cornerstone of the jewelry industry. In fact, according to a study in November of 2019, Americans spent $36 billion on diamond jewelry! Famously stated, “diamonds are a girl's best friend.” At Ben Adams Jewelers, you can explore our vast collection of this most popular fine jewelry staple. It’s also important to note that we do not sell lab-grown diamonds or lab-grown diamond jewelry.
Believe it or not, the single most popular diamond fashion purchase are diamond earrings, a fine jewelry staple. They can be large or small - depending on your budget! Certainly that is also true for just about any fine jewelry piece you own. But it also depends on what size may be right for you. When it comes to earrings, in particular, you should actually consider the size of your earlobes. If they are small and petite, earrings may be uncomfortable to wear in a larger size. Large earrings can be made lighter, however, based on the metal selection. Fine diamond jewelry can be set in white, yellow, rose gold, and platinum.
When you walk into our store, you’re going to notice we’re a little different. We think that’s a great thing! We don’t represent a long list of engagement ring designers because we are discriminating when it comes to quality. We prefer to work a little differently than many retail jewelers. For example, if you want a special diamond, we can talk about the many ways we can help you select the diamond of your dreams. You can begin your search here, or you can let us know what you’re looking for and we’ll find it for you. Otherwise, you can select from dozens of engagement rings, complete with center diamonds, in our cases or elect to have a one of a kind ring designed. If you have something specific in mind, well, you’ve come to the right place. We specialize in custom design. Looking for something made exclusively for you and you alone? Let’s start that process. We are hands on and want to get to know you.

Handcrafted in Florence, Italy, The Henderson Collection by Lecil is a made in the USA favorite. His exclusive collection represents beautiful pieces crafted with diamonds and fine gold, both contemporary and classic. And, always with your lifestyle in mind.
You’ll notice at Ben Adams Jewelers, we tend to be less about “trends” and more about core classics that are always uniquely fashionable. This includes diamond stud and hoop earrings, everyday diamond pendants, and diamond eternity bands. But, if you are looking for what’s currently trending, we certainly carry that too! Therefore, here’s a glimpse of what you might want to consider in your jewelry wardrobe:
We’ve seen stackable bands take center stage for the last few years, including diamonds and colored gemstones, and in several different metals. Create stacks and layers for your fingers, arms and neckline. Start with your own fine jewelry and add bands, necklaces, and bracelets from Gabriel, then venture into some that make a glittering statement by Henderson. You can even create the illusion of stacked pieces with certain styles that are multi-layered within one piece of fabulous jewelry.
Colored gemstones have always been an important part of several collections here at Ben Adams Jewelers. But, the popularity of colored gemstone jewelry really started to pick up steam in 2018, and continues to do so for fine jewelry trends. Luckily we carry collections by the fabulous Dilamani, and Artistry, both contemporary designers, as well as our extensive estate collection and Instore Coloured Collection.
Yellow gold was once a staple in classic jewelry and then it fell out of popularity for quite some time to its white gold counterpart. We’re excited yellow gold is back in style, and interest in it has been growing over the last few years. We love the artists that are adding texture to the richly colored gold metal, and the finish is exceptional, like those you can find in our Instore Everyday and Gabriel fashion pieces. Looking for something with a bigger wow impact? Check out our Instore Couture collection for jaw-droppingly beautiful pieces.
Fine jewelry is wonderful to own, wear, and cherish. But, it also needs some occasional TLC, and at Ben Adams Jewelers, we have a few tips to keep your jewelry in perfect condition.
Take out that jewelry box and take note of everything you own. You might actually find some treasures you haven’t worn in a while! But, you also might find some treasures you no longer love. Separate those and store them properly (more about that below) and consider what you might like to do with them. Perhaps it’s time to turn something you no longer wear into something you will! Contact us and we’ll set a convenient time to chat about custom design or gold and diamond buying.
While you’re taking inventory, check to make sure you have an up to date appraisal. Fine jewelry will change in value and regular appraisals are a way to ensure the value is current if it’s lost or stolen.
You can find a gemstone care guide here for advice on what gemstones you can clean safely.
Fine jewelry should not be tossed into a drawer or left on the top of your dresser. If you do that, you can expect to damage those precious gemstones and scratch your metals. Most fine jewelry pieces come in a box or pouch from our store. Of course, you can feel free to use those as your storage. But, a jewelry box that features individually padded slots for rings and posts for hanging necklaces and bracelets might be the best option. Plus, you’ll be able to easily pick the pieces you want to wear without having to open separate pouches or boxes.
Chemicals can damage or discolor precious metals like gold, silver, and platinum and may harm some colored gems. Everyday items like hairspray, lotion, perfume or other cosmetics can contain chemicals that will permanently damage the surface of your pearls and other delicate gemstones.
Remember, your jewelry is precious. While it’s great to do some in-home spa treatments to clean them, just remember your fine jewelry should still be checked every six months at our store and cleaned frequently.
