In 1862, Czar Alexander II, the Emperor of Russia, purchased a 260.37-carat oval-cut blue sapphire brooch at the Great London Exhibition for his empress, Maria Alexandrovna. That must have cost a pretty penny. And while you’re likely to encounter something in a more reasonable price range at this year’s winner, Angelo, you’ll find a piece that’s just as meaningful. The Downtown Mall store stocks original work from owner Lee Marraccini, and selections from designers at home and around the country. At Keller & George on Millmont Street, find diamonds, fine jewelry, and estate pieces.
