For over a decade now, Doyle & Doyle has been the go-to downtown destination for antique jewelry. The store stocks a full range of pieces, but it's primarily known for its superb collection of vintage and antique engagement rings from the Georgian, Victorian, Edwardian, Art Deco and Art Nouveau periods. The namesake sisters Doyle, Elizabeth and Pamela, have helped establish antiques as a viable, affordable and unique option for guys looking to pop the question. It's not all nuptial-based, though. Make sure to see the store's brooches and vast Victorian-era necklace collection.
