We are so proud to be your local jeweler, and work hard to provide each person who comes into our showroom with a great experience. Although our company has been providing the Triangle with the best in diamonds and jewelry since 1970, we still keep up with current trends and constantly look for new additions to add to our collection. In 2018 we brought you Vahan, and we are starting out 2019 by introducing Phillip Gavriel. Stop in to see us and see why so many have made CMI Jewelry Showroom their jeweler.



Garnet is a beautiful stone known for being not only January’s birthstone, but also the traditional second anniversary gift. Garnets are typically known for a deep red shade, but they actually come in every color with the exception of blue – you can find them in shades of red, green, yellow, orange, and brown. Their variety of shades, toughness, and affordability make them a popular choice among jewelry gemstones.
