Our foray into the Washington D.C. local market started back in 2011 when we opened up in Chevy Chase, one block away from the DC line. We started getting calls in our Baltimore store from people who wanted to sell their jewelry in Washington D.C. and were not willing to drive up to Baltimore to do it. It was also at the height of the gold buying frenzy, where gold spot prices reached $1900 per ounce.

This month, we took our efforts a step further with the opening of another office in Northern Virginia. In our 10 years of being in Chevy Chase, we noticed what a great market this is. So many exciting developments in this area make it the perfect spot for another Samuelson’s Buyers outlet. The pressing issue was, how are we going to staff it?

Luckily, we found a great buyer straight from Jewelers’ Row in Philadelphia. Here’s the official press release:

Samuelson’s Diamonds & Estate Buyers Expands Reach Beyond Maryland; Opens Third Location in Tyson’s Corner to Serve DC Metro Area

Baltimore, Oct. 23, 2019 – Founded and headquartered in Baltimore, third generation-owned jewelry business Samuelson’s Diamonds & Estate Buyers has not only survived its almost 100-year history; it is thriving. The company announced today that it is opening a third buying office in Northern Virginia (8300 Boone Blvd Suite 500 Vienna, VA 22182). This location is Samuelson’s first outside of Maryland and its second in the Washington D.C. metro area.

“As precious metal prices have continued to climb, the need for a trustworthy and reputable buyer in the D.C. metro area grows. The success we have experienced in our Chevy Chase office prompted us to expand in order to better serve our new and current Northern Virginia clients with a Tyson’s Corner location,” said CEO Ron Samuelson. “We jumped at the chance to hire a 30-year industry veteran, Allan Rosen, to head up this office.”

A native of The City of Brotherly Love, Rosen joins Samuelson’s straight from Philadelphia’s famous Jewelers’ Row, where he ran his own jewelry purchasing firm. With 30 years of experience, Rosen’s specialties include diamond grading, finished jewelry evaluation, estate jewelry purchasing, gold & silver assessment, and watch appraisals.

Samuelson’s Diamonds & Estate Buyers is open by appointment only and is now accepting appointments at its Northern Virginia office. The office is open Monday through Friday from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. and is conveniently located close to I-495 with free parking outside of the building.
