The 4 Best Places to Purchase an Engagement Ring in Chattanooga
Finding the perfect engagement ring, planning the proposal and then the wedding that follows comes with an overwhelming amount of decisions and choices to be made. Grandview strives to help our clients simplify the process so that you have time to enjoy all the beautiful moments that lead up to your special day.
If you know Chattanooga, you can probably tell that it is an extremely community-oriented city. The citizens of Chattanooga often place a high priority on supporting local business and our business-owners take pride in providing high-quality goods and services.
When shopping for an engagement ring it is imperative to be informed and confident on the source, construction, and quality of the ring, both the band and the jewel itself. With big-box retailers fighting for your attention, it can be hard to sort through the available options and find the store that will work with you to create the ring that your future spouse will cherish forever.
To make the hunt easier, we have compiled a list of Chattanooga’s premier jewelers.

Very forthcoming with information and timely with production. In fact the engagement ring was finished early and he adjusted his proposal plan because he was so excited to give it to me.
