I purchased my first piece of jewelry from J. Lewis Jewelry many years ago, after having been a customer of Fox's, Friedlander's and other downtown Seattle jewelers. After that first purchase J. Lewis became the ONLY jeweler I ever buy from. The service is exceptional, the people are extraordinarily knowledgeable, friendly, helpful and patient, the atmosphere is sophisticated but warm and welcoming, and parking is abundant and free. There is none of the snootiness found in so many other high-end jewelry stores, and none of the pressure to spend more. Repairs have been perfect, custom pieces are exactly right, and the prices are very reasonable, given the level of quality. Since that first purchase I've returned to J. Lewis Jewelry many times, following her from location to location, to the current, beautiful spot in downtown Bellevue. I have always been shown the perfect piece for myself or for gifts -- beautiful pieces that are always within my budget. I recommend J. Lewis to anyone and everyone without any hesitation.
