Today’s post was written by Elizabeth Mandros, Mystique Jewelers.
After being on the waterfront for twenty-six years, Mystique Jewelers recently relocated to S. Fairfax Street in the heart of Old Town Alexandria. My version of Old Town for many years was that which a mariner might see – rolling waves, big yachts and sailboats cruising along the Potomac.
While we didn’t move far, I have a completely new view of Old Town. We are now in the middle of the bustling cobblestone streets with their quaint alleyways and old time charm. One of my favorite new finds has been the market at City Hall on Saturdays. I love to stroll through to find fresh blooms for the store or vegetables to take home.
The move also allowed us to change the flow of our space. We’ve created a beautiful Diamond Bar where we showcase a stunning and unique selection of large loose diamonds and an array of diamond mountings. We are the place to come for beautiful, one-of-a-kind engagement rings. We can also help recreate any of your milestone rings and design wedding bands. The Diamond Bar at Mystique is truly the perfect place to find the perfect diamond ring. Our goldsmith shop also moved to share the same suite as my office, which is wonderful for our hands-on work in creating new designs for our customers. As a plus, we also have a beautiful veranda in the back where I am looking forward to hosting many gatherings with customers and friends, including our grand opening event and two upcoming trunk shows. Stay tuned for all of the details!
We of course will always carry our curated collection of fine jewelry, including a beautiful selection of rings, earrings, and necklaces. With our new location, we’ve also started to see many tourists come into the store. This led us to think about the items we were selling and how we can better serve those that are looking to buy something immediately to take home. We are now caring items in the $30-$500 price range that are great gifts! The move is more than I could have dreamed it would be and I would love to share that dream. Come in and visit our new store today – we cannot wait to see you there.
Mystique Jewelers is now located at 123 S. Fairfax Street, Alexandria, VA 22314.
