If diamonds are girl’s best friend, then The Golden Bear is HQ for all her fine jewelry wants. The store opened in 1975 and immediately became a favorite for locals and visitors — many customers have become like family, stopping in every time they are in Vail to add to their collection of Bears. The Golden Bear’s signature pieces are, obviously, bears: from Papa Bear to Baby Bear with every iteration in between.

Golden Bears are handcrafted in the Vail Valley studio by a team of passionate artisans who create pieces ranging from delicate and whimsical to chunky and eye-catching, gold bangles, classic earrings and pave pendants. Many of the designs can be customized to meet a customer’s specific desires.

The trademarked Golden Bear quickly becomes a family heirloom and has been known to mark special occasions from the birth of a baby to a ski trip to Vail, says Susan Ferrari, retail manager. The Golden Bear has a reputation for keeping customers happy, which is why it frequents the Best Jewelry Store list. “We love our clients. We want to make sure they have a warm and welcoming experience when they are in the store,” Ferrari said.
