I really like Place Jewelers. They're friendly, convenient and have good parking in Apponaug. I've used them for ring sizing, appraisals and a small purchase. Prices are ok, not surprisingly a bit higher than the bigger shops in the area, but I feel I'm paying for quality service. I'm pointing my husband there for our 10th anniversary because I would like a vintage ring. They have everything from current styles to estate pieces. Very much an old-style shop and highly recommended.
Pros: vintage jewelry, repairs on site, easy parking
Cons: probably a bit more expensive than some
