With so many options of places to buy jewelry it can be a daunting task when it comes time to buy wedding rings. Wixon's came highly recommended by my dad who had bought my mom's new ring for their 30th wedding anniversary here as well as some jewelry for his business.

I recently bought my fiance's wedding rings at Wixon's as well as my own ring. I had done plenty of shopping around, but had not found another jeweler who could compete with Wixon's for quality and customer service. Cost was certainly a consideration, but when making a major purchase it is invaluable to have someone you can trust and that you know will take great care of you. And I couldn't be happier with my experience working with them.

I worked with Linda and Jessica for over a month until we found just the right combination. I felt like they truly sought to understand what I wanted in a ring, and went out of their way to find exactly what I was looking for. I never felt like they were trying to "sell" me anything, but rather took a consultative approach to finding the perfect ring. Most of all, I feel like they were looking for a lifetime customer, and not a one time sale, and they've earned my business for life.

The quality of their collection along with the great customer service made it a no-brainer for where I wanted to do business. My fiance is constantly getting compliments on the ring & she couldn't be happier.

I have sent at least 4-5 referrals that have also bought and have had a great experience here. Certainly check out your options, but you'll be happy you added Wixon's to your list.

My beloved Omega Seamaster was running 3 minutes fast and I feared the worst. Saw an add for Wixon and gave them a call. Was told they had 3 watchmakers and could service my watch. Took it in and within 1/2 hour my watch was good as new again. The best part......it was any easy fix, and only 25$. Great service, Debra was very friendly. Will definately buy my Rolex from them someday

My husband and I were looking for a new diamond for our 15th anniversary. We went to 4 places, Wixon Jewelers, JB Hudson's, RF Moellers, and Continental. All 4 names we got from friends. We started at JB Hudson's because it was right down town. The store was nice, but the sales people were not friendly or helpful. Next was R.F. Moellers, the man we worked with was very aggressive, just too full of himself. Continental...I'm not sure why they were suggested, they just didn't carry the higher quality we were looking for. Finally Wixon's, What a wonderful place! We felt comfortable, they had lots of diamonds to show us. (We were looking at 3 carats) We worked with Jessica. She was very knowledgeable and very passionate about where she worked! We found the perfect ring and one of their goldsmiths, I think his name was Barry, offered some suggestions on setting the diamond. Jessica introduced my husband and I to the owner, Hope Wixon. She gave us some great advice on diamonds and even some great travel tips! We picked up my new ring a few hours later, after Barry did his magic. We felt great about our purchase and really good about doing business at Wixon's. I will save my friends from 3 other stops, and send them only to Wixon Jewelers! I love my ring!

Wixon??s Jewler??s, located in the nether land of suburban Bloomington, MN distinguishes itself with a selection from the world of haute horology as improbable as stumbling across a Bugatti dealership driving east out of Omaha. Minute repeaters, annual calendars and tourbillions from the storied workshops in Geneva and Schaffenhausen with prices in the 5 and 6 digit range illuminate display cases in mute testimony to the rising tide of wealth that has washed over the Upper Midwest in the past 20 years as well as the synergy that can develop between MSP airport and the draw of the nearby Mall of America as a shopping destination.

Sales staff is knowledgeable, friendly and attentive although, particularly on the jewelry side, in the best tradition of Glenn Murry, Glenn Ross, always closing. The store itself is pure Minnesota and seems to have taken its design cues from a mix of the Perkins restaurant chain and ??the cabin up North.? Except for the usual two door entry system, there is little to indicate that one has entered the world of high end jewelry, which comes across as reassuring, since on first consideration, it would seem that since Wixon??s is clearly not paying Madison Ave or Place Vendome rent, let alone hiring Copard??s decorators, the cost savings could be passed along.
Unfortunately, it would seem that the opposite is the case. Prices seem to be significantly higher at Wixon??s than at competing jewelers, and the customer is advised to beware.

Let me give an example.

This summer while bringing a PP ref. 5127 in for a new band, a bracelet caught my eye. The piece was an A. Link manufactured ??Lattice? 48 stone round cut 60/60 brilliant average color G, grade VS1 ??SI line (tennis) bracelet. List price $31,900. After asking, via e-mail, salesmen wrote, again via e-mail, he could give me a deal at $28,900. I was in no rush to buy and a bit later found the same bracelet; A. Lange manufactured ??Lattice? 48 stone round cut 60/60 brilliant average color G, grade VS1 ?? SI on sale at Betteridge in Greenwich, CT listed at $22,000 and after my asking, for sale at $17,000. I let Dan Wixon, who owns Wixons??s know this and the new price for the bracelet, communicated by Dan via e-mail, was $16,700.

In summary, Wixon??s was willing to sell a piece for $31,900 or with a bit of negotiating for $16,700. A $15,200 swing. I expect this sort of thing when buying flip flops in an outdoor market in Cairo but not buying jewelry in Minnesota. Since the guy in CT seemed pretty enthusiastic about making the sale at 17K my guess is that this price represents a reasonable mark up from wholesale.

So why is it that the initial negotiated price for the same bracelet from a full service, retail, authorized dealer is 17K Greenwich, CT but 28.9K in Bloomington, MN?

This is purely speculative of course, but my suspicion is that Wixon??s isolation, a near absence of competition in the upper segment of the market in this region, and the average Minnesotans reluctance to bargain, all play into this. Ultimately, these factors seem to end up allowing Wixon??s to charge and be paid prices significantly higher than a jeweler could in places where many jewelers in close proximity to each other are each operating in the same market space.

Therefore, based on my experience, if you find yourself dealing with Wixon??s I??d recommend treading with extreme caution, being ready to negotiate hard with the sales staff, or to simply sparing yourself the grief and avoiding the place altogether. And keep this in mind, at the premiums they are charging you and your spouse/partner could fly to New York, spend a few days at a nice hotel, see a couple of shows, buy the same piece of jewelry you were going to get at Wixon?? s and still come home with enough money left over to take the family to the Bahamas and warm up for a week this February, which in Minnesota, might not be such a bad plan.

Look elsewhere to sell gold and jewelry.
I was offered $5 for a gold item i got $30 elsewhere.
Skumbags would be a compliment for this rat bastard outfit.

I went to Wixon to have a new watch battery installed recently. They are a fine timepiece jeweler that take care and professionalism to the next level. I was happy with the price and the service.

While getting into the store is a bit intimidating (you need to ring a buzzer from the foyer and someone will unlock the doors for you) once inside the selection and quality of jewelry is amazing. The sales people are very helpful and not pushy and most importantly extremely knowledgeable. The store has many one of a kind items, antique items, as well as beautiful classic items. They also carry Rolex and other well know watch names. A great place if you are serious about jewelry.

Best place to find a Rolex, hands down. I have been to several stores around the country but Wixons have the best staff because of their high level of knowledge and they're not on commission.

I recently wanted to purchase a watch for my sons college graduation but I had no idea what kind of watch to get him. I had heard that Wixon Jewelers had a lot of Rolex watches so I thought that would be a good place to start. I am someone knowledgeable about fine jewelry but when it comes to watches I was a little clueless, but not for long. The people there were very friendly and helpful. I really enjoyed my visit because they were so informative about all the watch lines they sell and when they told me some facts about how they are made - I soon had a new appreciation for watches or as they say fine timepieces. After looking at a couple other watches; an IWC and a Jaeger, I ended up purchasing a Rolex for my son and Im sure hes going to love it. At least I know if he doesnt the folks at Wixon Jewelers ensured me that they will be there to help him choose the right one for him!

This is only TRUE high-end jeweler in Minnesota that has an EDUCATED STAFF. Everyone is friendly, non-pretentious, and service is superb. It's the only watch store I would consider buying from....the only watch store with master watchmakers on staff. By far and away the best watch collection that I've seen other than in New York or LA. Wixon KNOWS watches. My wife loves the place......I wish I knew about this jeweler when I bought my wife's wedding ring.

I just bought my 3rd watch (A Rolex this time) from Wixon Jewelers. I travel for my job, so I indulge in my passion for watches by going to other stores around the country...mostly east coast. I keep going back to Wixon's. They carry all the great watches. Wixon Jewelers sales people are incredibly knowledgable on watches. You'd be surprised how little some people know in the stores I've been in. They have big bucks invested in the watches, they carry the biggest collections I' ve seen- Patek in particular. They are great people there, nice to do business with.

I received an engraved ring as a gift from my husband. Less than one year later I returned it because a stone fell out and others were chipping. They did fix it at no charge. At that time they showed me the stones in their gem book and said they were the second hardest ranking, so that shouldn't have happened. I didn't notice until later that they had polished out the inscription inside. Six months later it was doing the same thing again. I went back and was told that they had discontinued this particular type of setting because it wasn't reliable. This was the first time I had been told this. Also, it would cost me quite a bit to make it wearable again. At this time (for the first time) they said it was a special occasion ring. This had never been mentioned to me before. I do not do heavy work with my hands and have never had a problem with other rings. This ring has a special meaning to me as my husband is now deceased. Whenever I look at the ring I loved so much, I get angry feelings.

I do not do heavy work with my hands and have never had a problem with other rings. This ring has a special meaning to me as my husband is now deceased. Whenever I look at the ring I loved so much, I get angry feelings.

Pros: Beautiful selection

Cons: Do not stand behind their products.

We had such a great experience with Wixon Jewelers. We bought my engagement ring there, as well as the bands. I highly recommend it. The folks there don't work on commission, which means they don't try to upsell, they are super helpful, the selection is awesome, and there are goldsmiths on the premises. When I first got my engagement ring, it was like a quarter of a size too small. We took it in one evening (I was soooo sad, thinking they would have to take my ring for a couple of days) and one of the goldsmiths did it in an hour. And if you stop in, request my girls Gina and Connie. They were tremendously awesome and helpful.\r\n

I was looking for a 20 year anniversary gift for my wife and this store had the largest pink saphire in display. What's amazing is they have Rolexes and a lot of unique expensive jewelry designed and made in-store. I went to all the top jewelers in the twin cities, rated by citysearch and yahoo but found this store through a family friend. Even the other stores that shipped in gems from out of state was not able to beat the price and size of stones that the store has. Look for Connie Bonk. Excellent service and they are not on commission.

Cons: Have to negotiate for a lower price so shop around and bring the best price to this store
