In 1856 my great great great grandfather opened a jewelry store. Could he imagine 164 years later we would be one of Baltimore’s favorite jewelers? We’ve accomplished a lot over the years – even playing a small part in the curse of the Hope Diamond. But on May 1st, 2020 we will be doing something we’ve never done before.

We’re opening a second location!

Woodbridge Virginia’s Jewelry By Designs is now a Nelson Coleman company.  Jewelry By Designs has been a staple of the Woodbridge community for 30 years. Jenny and John Caro treated their customers like family. We couldn’t imagine a more perfect pairing as we move into the future.

Woodbridge, we’re very excited to meet you!

Jewelry By Designs will remain your family jeweler. Ownership has changed hands, but what you’ve come to love about us will stay the same. We are still your full-service jeweler. Offering on-site repairs, appraisals, and custom design services. We will continue to carry your favorite designers, like Hearts on Fire and LeVian. The core values of Jewelry By Designs will never change. The personal service, ethical pricing, and community values that Jenny and John brought to this business will always remain. You will always be family here.

Exciting changes are coming, too. Extra seating areas, an updated children’s play area, extended store hours, and a couple of new smiling faces to help serve you. The addition of our philanthropic mission, the Enrichment program, which will help you support the causes you care most about.

The most exciting change is the extensive collection of one-of-a-kind estate jewelry we’re bringing to you!

I know waiting is always the hardest part. But you won’t be waiting long! We will be opening for repairs, warranty service, and custom design consultations starting April 1st. No appointment necessary, stop by during store hours and we will be proud to serve you. Jewelry appraisals will be available by appointment only starting April 1st.


Our Grand Opening Celebration will begin Friday, May 15. Get ready for a weekend of sparkling jewelry and surprises! Sign up for our email list below to be the first to know what we have in store.
