At Fred Meyer Jewelers, we understand the true power of jewelry. More than an accessory, jewelry is often handed down through generations, connecting people, places and events. So whether it’s a rare gem or an inexpensive bauble, jewelry tells a story that’s all your own.

The Contest

We want to showcase you – our real gems – through your real stories. Maybe your vintage earrings were passed down through generations, or your necklace was a gift that marked a special moment. Whatever the story is, we’d love to hear it. To enter the contest, share the tales (and pictures) behind your favorite jewelry and tell us why it’s so special to you. Read the rules here.

The Prizes

Five lucky winners will be featured in our national advertising over the course of the year, and each winner will also receive a $500 Fred Meyer Jewelers gift card.
