RD Allen Freeport Jewelers specializes in tourmaline and other colored gem stones. We excel in providing a wide variety of traditional, classic and fashion forward pendant, earrings, ring and other jewelry designs. We are privileged to work with some of the most outstanding goldsmiths in the region to provide you with full service jewelry repair and custom designs.
RD Allen Freeport Jewelers is proud to be associated with many longtime experts in mining and stone cutting like our friends Mark Theriault, our in-house goldsmith, and many others. They continue to bring us crystals from Maine’s gem-rich, southwestern foothills — not only tourmaline, which come in an astonishing array of hues including bi-colors or watermelons, but other gems found in our state: amethyst, aquamarine, topaz, golden beryl, smoky quartz and morganite.
As Freeport has grown, so has RD Allen Freeport Jewelers, and we now possess one of the most extraordinary Maine tourmaline collections in the country. We continue to acquire rare Maine (bi-color) watermelon slices. It is getting more and more difficult as most of it is from the 1972 Dunton Mine discovery — all the more reason that we are excited to showcase our extraordinary collection. If you have been thinking about getting a Maine watermelon pendant or earrings, now is the time.
In addition to Maine gems we carry an array of other gemstones in fine jewelry: tanzanite, citrine, peridot, blue zircon, garnet, pearl, opal and sapphire. We also carry Kit Heath, Nicole Barr, LeStage Convertibles (bracelets and charms), and Zable charm beads featuring the Maine bead.
RD Allen Freeport Jewelers is a full service jeweler, performing jewelry repairs and custom designing for rings, earrings, pendants, bracelets and broaches on the premises. We also work with award-winning Maine gem cutters and designers. We feature the work of over 20 Maine designers and artists. We carry “the Keepah” bracelet, New England Nauticals, as well as the very popular American Bead Collection. More recently, we were delighted to be a part of the US launch of Dog and Cat Fever Hug Rings and jewelry. So, bring us your jewelry dreams and we’ll make them happen. There is always something new and exciting to experience when you visit RD Allen Freeport Jewelers.
Testimonials from R.D. Allen Freeport Jewelers customers:
I love the ring. I don’t know if I will ever take it off. Thank you so much for all your guidance and beautiful artistry. I am beyond happy.
I recently purchased a necklace for my mother’s birthday. Purchasing from your store, hands-down, was one of the BEST experiences I have ever had as a customer.
From the warm and friendly customer service on the phone, to the impeccable attention to detail in both the item itself and its lovely gift-wrap, to the on-time shipping and careful packaging – you made this purchase a truly lovely experience.
My mother absolutely loves the necklace! The card enclosed with the receipt was also that extra-special personalized touch that a lot of buyers just don’t see anymore. You guys rock.
Thank you again for such a beautiful experience. We will definitely be looking to your store for future gifts!
This is a fantastic ring that was in a custom setting for a special tourmaline stone. It will forever make me happy. You take a person’s heart and put it in a beautiful setting!
You are the best. Thank you. I will be stopping in for years to come for (my wife). The bands are exquisite. I can’t thank you enough.
I just wanted you to know that I received my Maine tourmaline yesterday. My compliments on the land-and-sea setting and I am very happy that the piece arrived as you promised, and for taking the extra step to keep us posted throughout. Every time I wear it I will think of our special Maine get-away and remember your kindness and patience with us. Thank you again for all of your gentle guidance while I selected the perfect piece for me, and for coordinating the setting and shipping of my little seeded watermelon slice.
We can’t thank the crew at R.D. Allen enough for building our custom engagement ring from scratch. We will cherish this symbol of our love for the rest of our lives. We had some pretty specific and non-traditional requests for our ring, and Annette was able to capture everything we were looking for with the assistance of some amazing state-of-the-art Computer Aided Design. Once we had consulted with Annette regarding our general ideas for the piece, she was able to provide a digital image of the ring, which we were then able to further “tweak” to our exact specifications. When the final ring arrived, it was exactly what we had in mind. Annette also worked hard to keep the ring within our budget and was flexible with regard to payment in installments, which is invaluable to a young couple on a budget. R.D. Allen has earned two more customers for life, and we will definitely be returning soon to order our wedding bands.
Last month, I left several pieces of gold and tourmaline stones for “repurposing” as Annette calls it. I left two rings, a bracelet, and three neck pendants. Annette took time to sit with me and we discussed how we would change each piece to add the stones. Well, Annette and her Goldsmith Lorene worked wonders! I have some fabulous “new” pieces of jewelry to take with me when I move to Hawaii. Thank you, Annette! Everything turned out stunning!
When driving into Freeport you’ll see all the usual suspects for an outlet center, but tucked away on a side street is a wonderful local store that you won’t want to miss, at least if you enjoy jewelry. That store is R.D. Allen Freeport Jewelers at 13 Middle Street in Freeport. Just plug that into your GPS and park in one of their parking spaces out front of the store. Annette Evans, storeowner, is likely to greet you with an enthusiasm that is truly genuine. While she specializes in Maine Tourmaline, you’ll find lines and designs you won’t see at every other jewelry store. The store itself is completely different from the traditional layout of a jewelry store. Her cases are taller and at a slant so that you can see almost everything at eye level without bending over double to get a closer look. Prepare to be dazzled by color, for that is what her store is about! I was equally impressed by her prices. There is a price point for all pocketbooks, which is so important these days. Whether you buy something or not you’ll be welcome to shop without pressure. That’s the Maine way and also Annette’s way!
Eighteen years ago my daughter’s Aunt starting giving my daughter a single pearl for each special occasion. Then my daughter’s Grandma started doing the same. A long story short, for my daughter’s graduation from Freeport High School I wanted to get the pearls strung on a special necklace. I visited several local jewelry stores and happened upon Annette at R.D. Allen. She was able to take the pearls and create a necklace so gorgeous that I couldn’t believe my eyes-and at a FRACTION of the cost of what other jewelers had quoted me. I presented that necklace to my daughter on her graduation day with all of our relatives present. Because many of those relatives had donated pearls to the necklace they were so touched to see the end result. Needless to say there were few dry eyes. Thanks you R. D. Allen and Annette for a most memorable event.
I received the bracelet today. It is beautiful. I want to thank you for your wonderful way with people. We feel comfortable shopping at your store and will return on our next visit to Freeport.
Package arrived. Everything is perfect. I will always remember the trip when I wear any of the pieces. We had a great time and met a lot of wonderful people along the way starting with you. Thank you so much.
