What a fantastic jeweler! I recently purchased an engagement ring here for my soon to be (fingers crossed) fiance and couldn't be happier with the outcome. The ring that my girlfriend fell in love with on-line had been sold by the time we made it to the store to look for rings. I explained the situation to Alex and she was able to put together a piece that put the original ring to shame, and all for a VERY reasonable price! Alex took the time to listen to what I wanted and turned a sad situation into something more than I ever expected. Thank you Alexandria!

Amazing! Alex and her staff are friendly and very helpful. I loved their 'no pressure' style. My husband and I had looked everywhere for a push prize to celebrate our daughter's birth. We walked into Alexandria Rossoff and fell in love with at least five pieces. We ended up buying a beautiful ring that I constantly get compliments on. Her prices are fair and the pieces are unique. Each has their own story which makes it so romantic. I am a huge fan and will definitely look here first when buying jewelry in the future.

When I got engaged, my mother gave my fiance her engagement ring to give me. I didn't care for her setting, but loved the sentimentality. So we started a tour of settings online and in person to find something that felt right. The first time we went to Alexandria Rossoff, we loved the estate pieces. After several other shops, we went back and found a 1930s ring that complimented my hand. Alex worked with a jeweler to translate that ring into an exact copy for me, made for my finger, using my family diamond. It's a beautiful setting that my fiance and I both enjoy. It really sets off the family diamond (which was pretty modest to start with). It took over a month, and I did find myself eager to see the product. But I can't imagine loving another ring. Alex took the 1930s original off the market so the jeweler had a model, so she risked the sale of a well-priced piece while working on mine. I appreciated her vision and her clear explanations of the process. My advice - go see her!

Alexandria Rossoff deserves a special place in heaven as a reward for her kindness, expertise, sensitivity to customer needs, and completely pressure-free approach. I must say, her staff and Alex herself have made this very special purchase an enjoyment for me and has brought millions of smiles to my Fiancee. Alexandria Rossoff's shop is a rare gem here in Seattle and this place will always have a place in my heart. The process was so smooth and easy; expect first class service and tons of one on one attention. We are planning on going back soon for wedding bands and perhaps all my Fiancee's wedding jewelry. Please keep Alexandria Rossoff rare jewels in mind when looking to get engaged or just looking for a special piece of jewelry. Alexandria Rossoff you're the best!!!

Great selection. Great service. Find something truly unique. After visiting lots of engagement ring stores and feeling like I was being shown all the same things, I was really impressed with the service and selection of vintage jewelry at Alexandria Rossoff. The owner, Alex, listened to my ideas and helped me find a ring that my wife now loves, and we both really appreciate that it is one of a kind. I've since gone back to purchase a few more pieces, not all antiques, and am always greeted with the same genuine interest and attention. I feel like I've found someone I can trust to help pick out beautiful, timeless jewelry, and will keep going back.

I've been frequenting Alex's shop for over 7 years now, and have only wonderful things to say about the experience and selection. She always manages to find so many unique items in a variety of price ranges, so it's never a problem to find something that fits my budget and personality. It's such a joy to wear these little pieces of history, and Alex makes it possible--we're lucky to have her in Seattle!

Alex saved my wedding day! I had previously taken my grandmother's ring to another jeweler to get it appraised and repaired for my upcoming wedding, and after the outrageous quote they gave me to fix it, they also told me it would be a month or better before I got it back. I decided to try somewhere else, and after 2 months of searching, I happened upon Alex's store Tuesday before the wedding (which was on Saturday), and talked with her about the ring, and what needed to be done (resized and stones tightened) and not only was she able to get the repairs done for a fraction of what the other place had told me, but she was able to get it done for me by Friday, and even pointed out that the other jeweler was going to be doing some unnecessary work on the ring!! Alex has earned a lifetime customer in me, and I will never take my jewelry any where else to be worked on. Thank you Alex!!!

I have bought several pieces of jewelry here, and not only do I have some really gorgeous jewelry, but I also received a good value for my money. Alexandria treats her customers so well, that you won't want to go anywhere else, nor can you! - her collection is just so exquisite and she has new stuff all the time; everything is one of a kind and high quality - either vintage or newer European handmade. Alex has a great eye for detail and each piece is really special. She has the jewelry you will love forever. It's not trendy, just classic, but unique. You really can't go wrong here. Alex and her staff are so nice. Sorry to gush, I just won't go anywhere else now.

Alexandria's is my favorite jewelry shop for oh so many reasons. Alexandria carries absolutely gorgeous antique stunning pieces and the service is second to none! Alexandria helped my husband choose the most beautiful pieces for my birthday last year and even fixed an antique cuff for me; it is better than new!

Great Jeweler. Alexandria Rossoff is a very fine jeweler, creative, really understands her clients and what they are looking for, and has the best, unique selection. I cannot recommend her highly enough.

I'm in love with Alexandria's store. She finds the most unusual, intriguing and beautiful antique jewelry from her jaunts around the world. Her taste is exquisite, and she's extremely helpful with any questions. Now, if only I could have everything......

Excellent! If you like beautiful, high quality antiques and rare finds, you will love Alexandria Rossoff. I have never in my life seen such a full collection of classy, elegant, and striking jewelry in my life. Ultimately, I bought a ring there, after searching for nearly a year, at jewelry stores across the country. Moreover, the service there is excellent. There is no pressure, and they are very knowledgeable, and helpful. Alexandria, herself, is known in the Seattle community, as the go-to jeweler for consultation on rare and antique items. I can't say enough good things about the quality of the jewelry and service I received there.
-Kara W., Seattle, WA, 4/22/2009

A Unique Experience! They have a beautiful and unique collection in this store. I highly recommend you to go in person and talk to the owner of the store, Alexandria. She knows every piece in the store and more importantly she is a people reader. She was able to find the perfect ring for me just by asking me a couple of questions. My fiance and I visited multiple stores prior to Alexandria Rossoff's and the decision was never this easy. Their service and help made it a unique and memorable experience for us. Pros: They have great knowledge of their collection and all of the pieces are unique.

My wife and I recently purchased our custom wedding bands from Alexandria Rossoff. Their knowledge helped us sift through the many options. They made the experience of selecting and tailoring our rings an effortless and most cherished memory. Pros: variety, friendly, knowledgeable.

Beautiful Place! My engagement ring and wedding band came from Alexandria Rossoff, and I love both. Everything there is beautiful, and we recieved attentive service from everyone in the store. I highly recommend it if you are looking for something a cut above the usual.

Indepth Knowledge. It was a complete pleasure shopping with Alexandria Rossoff. The staff was friendlier than most of the stores we had been in. I take great pride in our purchase as my fiancés ring is the talk of every party we attend. It was the salesman Peter Bruckner and the owner Alexandria that made the experience an enchanting pleasure. We will continue to purchase our legacy from this delightful store. Pros: Value, Quality, Service
