“Don Bitzan founded D.J. Bitzan Jewelers with a tight budget, a supportive wife, seven precocious kids, and a dream. It was Don’s willingness to take a risk and his commitment to hard work that allowed him to open a jewelry store in the brand new Crossroads Mall on March 9, 1966. Don built the business on a foundation of integrity and trust, along with a commitment to serve his customers and the community. Those same values shape our Central Minnesota jewelry store today.”


I mean…what more could I add? 

Usually it’s not this easy for me when I do a Vendor Spotlight. But there it is—right on their own website, the jewelry store that has been making central Minnesota sparkle for over fifty years lays it right out there. They wear their hearts on their sleeves, which makes them a perfect place to shop for anyone about ready to pop the question. They are romantics and dreamers at heart, and they cater to those who are writing their own love story.

A visit to the D.J. Bitzan Jewelers website shows why they are a local wedding legend amongst brides and grooms for over a half of century. Their selection is second-to-none, and it far surpasses the completion—including the large chain jewelry retailers. A quick click on “Engagement Rings” reveals nearly one thousand listings. Their inventory includes the standard yellow and white gold metals, but also feature the on-trend rose gold as well. There are nine different diamond cuts featured, and the weights go all the way up to 4.00. There is literally something for everyone from D.J. Bitzan Jewelers.

And if there isn’t something perfect, they can make it. D.J. Bitzan Jewelers offers custom creations, from custom engagement rings and wedding bands to even one-of-a-kind heirlooms. Be it designing something new or redesigning something that already exists, this jewelry is enthusiastic to help their customers bring their visions to life (see what they did for Patty if you don’t believe me).

Any couple looking for unique wedding jewelry with just as precious customer service should start with D.J. Bitzan Jewelers…they make is super easy to do so: Check them out at their beyond comprehensive website as well as on Facebook and Instagram.

At home on the road. Forever-focused on authenticity and the thrilling art of creation; always found in the moments that leave me breathless and in awe. 

After fourteen years as a high school educator, I stepped back through a door I thought was closed. Journalism came back into my life. Armed with a Masters of Arts in Communication, I was again challenged and prepared to tell the stories that would become history, but with a twist: It is now your legacy of love that I document. The tension I seek is that from every tear, smile, laugh, and moment of love on your wedding day.
