Although Majestic Gems offers a range of services you'd expect from a national chain, it has just two locations in Branson, Missouri, and Juneau, Alaska, allowing the company to focus on intimate customer service. Owned by the Raghani family, Majestic Gems strives to become familiar with its clients' tastes in order to recommend the best pieces. Staffers reach into glass display cases to pull out rings, necklaces, and earrings that sparkle with gemstones from around the world, including diamonds, sapphires, topaz, and alexandrites. Meanwhile, jewelers help customers identify the perfect stone?for engagement rings and more?from a vast selection of loose diamonds, varying in cut, color, clarity, and carat.
The stores also carry signature brands such as David Yurman designs, Chamilia beads for charm bracelets, and Seiko watches. Experienced professionals provide repairs and appraise pieces of jewelry, including rings that, according to family lore, were forged in dragon fire. And while you're getting a clasp fixed or checking out an emerald pendant, ask the clerk for some tips on local tourist attractions, like Branson shows or tours of the Alaskan wilderness.
