Who we Are.

We have been serving the Manassas area since Wilton Ashby first opened the doors in 1946. Jewelry is our passion, and matching the perfect piece for one of our neighbors brings us happiness and great satisfaction. Stop in and say, "hi", you won't be disappointed in what you find.

What makes us Different.

Unlike most of the chain stores, we know how to design and fabricate jewelry. We have artists who can help you design your own unique piece and will make it to your specifications. All repairs are made on site by an experienced and highly qualified goldsmith.

What we Do.

We are a full service jewelry store. In addition to the beautiful pieces you find in our showroom, we do repairs, service quartz watches, create one of a kind custom jewelry, and more. For more details on our services, please check our service page.
