‘Best Of’ Extras

Even more places to find a great deal on a ring, or on some sparkle.

For value: Midtown Jewelers, 11990 Market St., Reston; 703-707-9663; midtownjewelersinc.com. Affordable lines from high-end designers including Charles Krypell and handcrafted works by Beny Sofer make this a good bet for the young affianced. Mixed in are out-of-the-ordinary items such as Natalie Zeigler’s gem-strung necklaces.

Favorite for sparkle:
Charleston Alexander Diamond Importers, 7845 Wisconsin Ave., Bethesda, 301-951-6200; 5924 Leesburg Pike, Falls Church, 703-931-6200; wherethediamondsare.com. Diamond prices are very competitive here, and attention is paid to a gem’s cut—critical for sparkle. Generous trade-up policies, too.
