Both my family and myself have been going to Moshers Jewelers for years now because we love the service and the variety of "special" gifts and jewelry that they carry.
They have a fair layaway policy, special orders are the norm, and their prices are competitive with any other independent jeweler. They also do watch/clock repair and jewelry repair/resetting.
My wedding set, my husband's wedding band, the gifts that were purchased for the bridal party, and our gift registry were all here. One particularly "cool" thing that the store does for brides to be who register here is a few weeks prior to your shower or wedding, they set a "table" with your name on the card. They also do deliveries in town and gift wrapping at no charge.
