Golden Bear jewelry, and the iconic bear shape, are symbols of the Vail Valley for a reason. Go for the traditional gold necklaces or jewelry, or get something a little out-of-the-box with stone-embedded pendants, or with a cuff bracelet.

Eye Pieces of Vail

Eye Pieces of Vail has several locations in the village, as well as elsewhere in the valley.

Gorsuch has been curating quality mountain-friendly clothing — think riding boots, shearling jackets and cashmere sweaters — to the Vail Valley for years. After shopping in Vail, stop in the Gorsuch Ski Café at the top of Bridge Street by Gondola One to check out some rental or demo skis. Check out the store at Beaver Creek as well.

Squash Blossom

Squash Blossom is one of Vail's oldest retailers, maintaining its spot in the village for decades.

Another mainstay jeweler in the Vail Village, Squash Blossom’s specialty is Native American-style jewelry, designer jewelry and engagement rings. For those looking to pop the question soon, perhaps get your special someone a forever-reminder of Vail’s culture and natural beauty.

Kemo Sabe

Kemo Sabe's two other locations are in Aspen and Las Vegas.
Casey Russell

For the person who loves the Old West, checking out Kemo Sabe is your best bet. The store, located on Bridge Street, takes all the best parts of cowboy and cowgirl attire, and puts it through a 21st century style time machine. The result is an upscale take on the looks that define America.
