There are second hand stores, and there are fine antique shops, and The Antique Guild in Old Town Alexandria is certainly the latter. The main draw to this decades-old store is The Antique Guild’s collection of upscale, unique jewelry, with pieces ranging from brooches and cameos, to earrings, cuff links, and more. If you’re looking for a gift (for you, or someone else) and want it to be completely one of a kind, The Antique Guild has plenty of special and rare options. The shop also stocks antique silver, both in flatware and other houseware items, and well as other small treasures like ceramics, bronze statues, and match safes. The team prides itself on a high-quality selection and the industry expertise to value pieces fairly, both for sellers and buyers.
And while The Antique Guild does not have a license to purchase items directly from the public, they work with auction houses to amass their incredible collection. See the website for a full description and photography of the items for sale.
