I'm visiting in Franklin for a while and had planned to go to all the local gem shops because I had heard about the fine gems here. Now I'm confused by some suspect shops I've been to and I'm having trouble separating out the shops that are RELIABLE, EXPERT, & HONEST from the others.

Would any of you local people please tell me where to go in the local area to buy gemstones and also where to have several stones I already have set into jewelry?

Thank you for any help you can give me. I am knowledgeable about many gemstones but I am certainly no expert and I do not want to get ripped off.

I went to the Chamber of Commerce but got no help from them. They seemed more interested in real estate and tourist stuff.

You're asking people from Hayesville? NOT a bright move IMO.

Jeffrey, not sure if he has the gemstones you are looking for, but my husband and I go to George at Smokey Mountain Jewelers. He set the diamond in my engagement ring then custom made my wedding bands to match. We've always been really pleased with his work and his prices!

Don't go to Ruby City. They'll rob you.
