The 4 Best Places to Purchase an Engagement Ring in Chattanooga

Planning an engagement and the wedding that follows comes with an overwhelming quantity of decisions and choices to be made. The 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’ve ever visited Chattanooga before, 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 for you to explore!

Customer review:

“I am really writing this for my new husband, he worked closely with the jewelers at Kennedy to create my beautiful engagement ring and then my wedding band. The more impressive part is that the people at Kennedy Jewelry were able and willing to help even though my husband lives out of town. He felt that they were extremely professional and helpful. 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. As the recipient, I could not be more happy. It was exactly what I wanted and it was a complete surprise. To this day, a year and a half later, I still look down at my hand and think ‘Wow! That is beautiful!’"
