It\'s Mystique!

At Mystique, we appeal to women who have a strong sense of style, know what they like, and create a jewelry wardrobe. Tradition and uniqueness is my mindset, whether you want to be glamorous or casual the pieces I choose for my collections will capture these desires to cherish for a lifetime.

Mystique has been on the cutting edge of designer jewelry since its inception in 1991, since I opened in Old Town Alexandria. I have always hand selected pieces from many designers as well as created with my in-house master goldsmith.

Featuring designers and collections that are not seen in most other jewelry stores.

Having been in the jewelry business for over 25 years, I have created a store that is sophisticated and unique….

In the beginning the family worked with coral and conch shells, which they harvested and hand-carved in Italy for cameos. Then, in the 1930’s, the… Read More

While at the Wedding Showcase, we got some insight… Read More
