Seattle is a beautiful city in the northwest corner of the United States. Any tourist can visit the popular space needle, ride some ferries, check out the aquarium–but the jewelry treasure hunters know to head to Alexandria Rossoff for rare, antique jewels. Owner Alexandria has over 20 years experience in the jewelry and gem business, with also being involved in countless industry organizations. You can visit the store at 402 University Street in Seattle…check out some pieces that are available below:
A stunning Edwardian festoon necklace, done in platinum with 4.14 carats of diamonds.
Beautiful 18k white gold diamond ring, set with a 0.90 carat Old European cut diamond.

That serpent necklace is gorgeous! I live in Seattle but I've never visited. I may have to now!

Lauren, you should go and let me know what you think! I haven't been there myself, but if I ever visit I want to!

Funny, I did a profile on Alex some time ago! She is truly an expert in the field. I live in Seattle, so have the luxury of stopping in whenever I need a fix! Her collection of Victorian-era jewelry (like the serpent above) is especially impressive.
If you ever visit Seattle, ping me, we should have coffee (or cocktails!)!

You're so lucky Monica! I would love to meet up if I'm ever in the area–sounds amazing!
