Receiving jewelry is one of the most memorable events of a lifetime. Since 1943 Price’s Fine Jewelry has served the people of Detroit Lakes and the surrounding community with cutting edge fine jewelry designs and outstanding customer service. While we have evolved into modern business operations and technology, we have remained steadfast in our foundational principles of integrity, trust and truth in pricing.
Sylvester's son Kenneth, together with his wife Clarissa, were the first husband-wife team and founders of Price’s Jewelry in Detroit Lakes, along with their son Gerald. Gerald bought into the company as a teenager with $200, which he saved from his Detroit Lakes paper route. Gerald “Jerry” married Ruth Hanson in 1952 and they became the second Price couple to work jointly in the business.
Other than his brief two years of service in the US Army, Jerry was a dedicated owner, manager, jeweler, gemologist, and watchmaker. Today, Jerry is considered “retired,” but recognized for his extensive involvement in the jewelry industry as a Registered Jeweler, Past President of the Minnesota Watchmakers and the Minnesota Jewelers Board of Directors. Gerald and Ruth have faithfully served in various civic organizations in Detroit Lakes and Minnesota. Ruth was the bookkeeper for the business through several of the years, but her most devout position was as wife and mother to their four children - Steve, Lynnette, Roger and Cheryl.
While all of the children were involved in the business over the years, Roger was the one who took over leading the charge into the future.
The legacy continues today with Roger, who in his childhood showed an aptitude in the goldsmith department, and his wife Anita carrying on the traditions of the family business. Roger began his venture in the business during junior high, learning goldsmith skills from his grandfather and father.
Roger and Anita are proud to be the third husband-wife team to oversee the family business. Their three children Kelvin, Breanna, and Kylee are seen from time to time in the background of the business.
Roger now holds the title of “Master Goldsmith.” Roger is highly respected in the jewelry industry for his eye for superior craftsmanship in diamond setting and goldsmith work.

Absolutely gorgeous! My fiancé brought a pearl I actually found in an oyster and a cabochon emerald birth stone I had been saving into the store along with a drawing I made of what I pictured for these treasures. It came out exactly how I envisioned for them! I looove two tone designs so I can wear with anything! They also made my engagement ring EXACTLY how I pictured it (even a larger diamond than I anticipated)!!! See Anita, she’s so talented and extremely knowledgeable!
A happy customer,

The color of gem-quality diamonds occurs in many hues. In the range from colorless to light yellow or light brown. Colorless diamonds are the rarest. Other natural colors (blue, red, pink for example) are known as “fancy,” and their color grading is different than from white colorless diamonds.

Of all the 4Cs, diamond cut has the greatest effect on a diamond’s beauty. In determining the quality of the cut, the diamond grader evaluates the cutter’s skill in the fashioning of the diamond. The more precise the diamond is cut, the more captivating the diamond is to the eye.
