Jewelry Shopping in Washington D.C.


Jewelry ShoppingWith everyone in Washington up in arms over the economic situation we find ourselves in, how about doing your duty as a good citizen by single-handedly trying to revive the economy? How to do it? How about traveling to our nation's capital, and dropping some serious coinage on the city's fabulous jewelry emporiums. First stop: Beadazzled for some folk inspired designs. You could also indulge in your creative side and make your own-pick up some tiny seed beads, strands of glass beads, or unique loose beads in a rainbow of colors, plus the appropriate tools, wires, and clasps. Creative, but not really a DIY kind of girl? Head on over to Friendship Jewelers, where proprietor Joel Ellenbogen specializes in collaborating with his customers to fashion the pieces they'll covet forever. The small, but inpired selection includes watches, fashion jewelry and diamonds at fair pricess. The styles are classic and timeless, just what you want when investing in a long-lasting piece. Downtown, I. Gorman offers elegantly architectural pieces that are both edgy and eye-catching. Here, floating circular cases evoke the stunning, meticulously crafted rings; marble-like walls, seemingly lit from within, have the same complex textures as colorful sculpted bracelets; and plank-like tables recall modern necklaces studded with gemstones. It is hard to decide what is more stunning, the diamonds or the décor. When in D.C. indulge in the patriotic spirit. Famed jeweler Ann Hand is known for her take on expressing national pride and political opinion. Why slap a bumper sticker on your car when you could pin sparkly rhinestones or pearls on your trench? Pick up a gold and pearl eagle broach or wear your favorite politician's name in rhinestones! If you are looking for an item that is a bit more serious, and makes a more sophisticated statement, stop by Mia Gemma (http://www.storeadore.com/sdev/store_profile.php?storeID=2808. As the name implies, the homey shop is devoted primarily to classic, grown-up pieces where the stones (both semi-precious and precious) are the standouts. The store carries a few of each item, but some of the more expensive pieces are one-of-a-kind, so grab what you like when you see it because there might not be another one to go around.
