Nancy and Kate are the very best! I cannot say enough nice things about them. My fiancé said his experience purchasing my engagement ring there was great, they were even able to keep his appointment with an unexpected power outage throughout town. They were extremely helpful in helping me find the perfect antique wedding band as well. They have the most beautiful selection of antique rings I’ve ever seen.

The Knot 5 Star Review

This was by far my favorite jewelry store experience! It isn't overwhelming or too commercial. I absolutely love the vintage collections. Many stones and elements that aren't frequently used anymore. All of the designs were excellent, so someone has a great eye when they chose what antique pieces to sell. 


My husband got me an ensemble from one particular contemporary jewelry artist for Christmas. The necklace was just slightly too tight. I thought we were going to drop it off and have an extension put on. The girl did it right away and came out and put it on me! It looks so nice. It didn't seem like much time, but it didn't matter because I was completely lost in all the beautiful jewelry pieces on display. The other girl patiently showed me a bunch of pieces and answered all my questions. 


We will definitely stop back in any time we are in Mystic. And I would completely trust trust them to repair anything I had.

The women at N.L. Shaw were so patient and helpful in finding the perfect jewelry to complement my dress. The shop is small and the service personal with a team of very knowledgeable and welcoming experts to assist you, without pressure to buy. They really want you to love your selection and there's a mix of unique antique and estate pieces as well was some contemporary pieces by local artisans.

Wedding Wire 5 Star Review

Kaitlyn was so helpful in my mad hunt for a wedding band! My husband and I stumbled upon this store and I couldn't have been more grateful! I walked in, a little disheartened from all the searching I had done at large jewelry companies, and couldn't have been more happy not only to find the perfect ring, but also to support this amazing small business!


Even if you're not planning on buying anything, you should at least visit to say hi to the sweet people who run this place. :)
