We have another segment of Jewelry Road Trip from Maura of ShopFiligree from her travels in Alexandria, Virginia! This time she headed to Silverman Galleries Antiques, on North Saint Asaph Street. Let’s hear what she has to say:
“Centrally set in the fantastically charming Old Town Alexandria, VA, Silverman Galleries Antiques is one of the D.C. area’s longest-running (50+ years) and well-established antique shops (and still under original ownership, no less!) Maurice and Angela Silverman have come across some astounding acquisitions over the years, (a Victorian 1.33 CT emerald and two 1.65 CT diamond ring; a European 1900s “Luckenbooth” (twin heart) rose gold, sapphire and diamond ring; a European 1910 Edwardian platinum filigree and nearly 1.5 CTs total diamond ring that will knock you into next Tuesday) just to name a few.
Perfectly happy to assist with whatever your eye may seek during your particular visit, yet likewise easy-going and relaxed enough to allow for a thorough browse around their fascinating counters and cabinets filled with true antique show-stoppers and treasures. Each piece is featured (in my opinion, as it should) uncluttered, clean and highlighted within its own space so one can truly appreciate it for its own particular merits and place in history. Knowledgeable and friendly team hosting wonderfully curated and diverse finds, Silverman Galleries is a “must” on your list of antique stops if you’re in the D.C. area.”
