This year marks 33 years of business for Princess Jewelry. We couldn't be more passionate about the work we do and the people we serve.
Princess Jewelry opened in 1985 in St. Paul, MN. We originally only sold gold chains but saw an increasing market for engagement rings and other jewelry. About three years into business, we moved into our Burnsville location. We were there for 30 years and then moved to our Lakeville location 3 years ago. We have loved being one of the most reliable family-owned jewelers south of the river. John, the store's owner, created instruments to magnify diamonds more than what jeweler microscopes were doing while he was running the business in 1992. John's instruments were sold by GIA (Gemological Institute of America) and De Beers Jewellers, both internationally known as the leading sources of knowledge, standards, and education in gems and jewelry. The turn of the century brought new technology, which prompted John to create WeddingBands.com, an online site where people can buy jewelry. The site fully launched in 2000 and is still thriving today! In addition to selling jewelry in the store, we also make custom jewelry for those who are looking for something a little different. We can design jewelry that you would like and make sure it comes to life exactly how you imagined it. Today, the store is run by John, his wife Suheyla, and their daughter Edessa. Both John and Edessa are accredited jewelry professionals by GIA and have extensive knowledge in diamonds, colored gemstones, metals, watches, etc.
At Princess Jewelry, we strive to be the best we can be to provide the best service for our customers. That is one of the best parts of being a family-owned business stationed here for the past 30 years- we get to know our customers. As the years have gone on, we have seen our original customer's kids grow up and come to us, along with their nieces and nephews, siblings, and friends. We truly believe that the reason we see generations of customers continuously come back to us for their jewelry needs, is because we genuinely care. We love getting to know each of our customers and their families. There is nothing better than seeing a familiar face walk into our store. The same is to be said for our customers- having trust in your jeweler is invaluable. Being a small family-owned business allows us to tailor each experience specifically to what the customer's wants and needs are.

We love what we do here at Princess Jewelry. To be a part of something so special, whether it be an engagement, a wedding, an anniversary, or a landmark birthday; is an aspect of the job we cherish. We know the power of jewelry. The way it can express endless love, hold unforgettable memories, and be a precious keepsake for a loved one. To all of our customers, thank you so much for an amazing 33 years (and counting) together. To our future customers, we are so excited to meet you, and look forward to serving you in the best way we can.
