about Karrow Jewelers
a brief history
Karrow Jewelers opened in downtown Alexandria in 1973 and expanded to the Viking Plaza Mall several years later. Born and raised in Alexandria, we are a second generation family-owned full service jewelry store specializing in fine diamond engagement rings, men's wedding bands and custom bridal design.
Jewelry repairs are a very important part of our business. With 45 years of experience, our instore bench jeweler can service all your jewelry and ring repair needs. We strive to excel in what we do and offer the latest in technological advancements in custom design and jewelry repairs. A licensed watchmaker is on the premises to take care of your watch and clock repairs. Free estimates are always given before proceeding with repairs.
Customer service has always been our most important focus as we have served Alexandria and the surrounding area for the past 45 years. We not only service what we sell, but we always handle our customers precious heirlooms with the utmost care and concern.
knowledgeable & experienced
We have a knowledgeable and experienced staff who work between both stores offering free cleaning and inspection of your diamonds plus free estimates on all repairs. We are experts in the diamond industry and trained to help you choose the diamond of your dreams from our large inventory of diamonds in all qualities and carat weights in the finest of colors.
Trust is key to the service we provide. We have many people who have left the Alexandria area but who still return or mail us their rings and fine watches to be repaired because of their trust in us. We are locally owned and take an active role in being part of our community.
After numerous trips to Antwerp, Belgium to buy diamonds for our customers, we partnered with a diamond cutter in Antwerp to create our own “GRACE” diamond named after our baby daughter Grace. We have sold the "GRACE” cut diamond in our stores and in several other jewelry stores throughout the United States. Our daughter GRACE, now 14 years old, has the first "GRACE” diamond that was cut and named for her set aside in our vault.
