iny Jewel Box, a prestigious watch and jewellery retailer established in Washington DC since 1930, has begun welcoming visitors to their new Patek Philippe showroom. The first floor of the historic ’Elizabeth Arden’ building has been beautifully renovated to house the expanded showroom of the world renowned fine Swiss watch brand.
Now with its own dedicated shopfront on Connecticut Avenue, Tiny Jewel Box goers can enter right into the magnificent Patel Philippe space while still recognizing Tiny Jewel Box’s signature storefront facade and vaulted ceilings. It represents a luxuriously appointed expansion for which Patek Philippe selects very few U.S. authorized retail partners to bear.
“We are delighted this expansion with Tiny Jewel Box will establish a more expansive presence in the nation’s capital for our valued customers,” said Lisa Jones, President of Patek Philippe USA. “We are both family-run companies and share similar values and approach. Tiny Jewel Box’s meticulous attention to detail and unwavering loyalty to their clientele instills us with full confidence that this iconic establishment will continue to deliver the Patek Philippe experience for years to come.”
- Washington D.C.’s Mayor, Muriel Bowser, sent representative Joe Florio who awarded Tiny Jewel Box with a proclamation acknowledging their growth and contribution to the economic health of business in the District.
Patek Philippe has graced the wrists of many of the world’s most influential people since its founding in 1839 in Geneva. Likewise, Tiny Jewel Box has a storied history spanning over nine decades in Washington, D.C. From bejeweling visiting Hollywood stars like Sammy Davis, Jr. and Bette Midler, to providing official gifts for four White House Administrations and helping Secretary of State Madeleine Albright subtly reinforce her stance with her poignant broaches; Tiny Jewel Box has long added sparkle to the nation’s history.
Both Patek Philippe and Tiny Jewel Box have remained family-run operations for the better part of a century. Patek Philippe is currently under the helm of fourth-generation President, Thierry Stern, while President of Tiny Jewel Box, Matthew Rosenheim represents the third generation to run D.C.’s most trusted jeweler.
