Knox Jewelers is located in Minneapolis, Minnesota, and we have worked with our customers in Portland for years. To facilitate high-quality long-distance customer relationships, our Try Before You Buy program encourages seeing the detailed craftsmanship of our rings in person, rather than just looking at pictures online. After you decide on a style that suits you and that you’re interested in pursuing, Knox Jewelers’ expert staff will send that ring directly to your door. Take the time to familiarize yourself with the stunning detail of your chosen ring; make an informed decision for your own custom design.

Do you have an heirloom diamond? Knox Jewelers’ team of artisans will craft a custom-designed ring especially for your stone. The dimensions of the stone will serve as a base for whichever design you choose, and the highly trained jewelers on staff will carefully reset your diamond into the ring to create a wearable work of art.

There are several options to carefully consider if you are looking to purchase a center stone for an engagement ring. One gemstone that may not be on your radar is moissanite. This stone has recently been increasing in popularity. The fact that this particular option is man-made, rather than being a naturally mined stone, results in lower prices per carat and thus the ability to purchase a larger or higher-quality gemstone.

Another option is a lab-created diamond. This also has a lower cost per carat than a mined stone, while sharing identical chemical and optical qualities with natural diamonds. Some consider lab-created diamonds a more environmentally healthy choice, given the different processes involved in laboratory processes rather than mining operations.

Finally, the traditional option for engagement ring center stones is a natural diamond. These have a deep sentimental value and romantic image, due to their dramatic creation deep within the earth over millennia. Is a natural diamond the right gemstone to symbolize your relationship and display in a custom engagement ring?

Deciding on a ring design, choosing a center stone, and purchasing a ring from Knox Jewelers couldn’t be easier. Our customer service representatives will walk with you through the whole process. One benefit of working with Knox Jewelers in Minnesota from your location in Portland is that due to our respective locations, you will not be charged sales tax on the rings that you purchase. This results in a lower cost overall, potentially compared to purchasing rings in-person from a store where you would be charged sales tax. As a result, your dollar stretches further and allows you to make an upgraded purchase for the same amount of money.
