In the heart of Old Town Alexandria, Silverman Galleries is one of the Washington D.C.
area's longest running antique shops still under original ownership.
The large, diverse and definitely antique inventory reflects the owner's broad interests,
inquiring mind and passion for quality.
Son of a 1920's platinum and goldsmith, Maurice Silverman grew up watching his father
make the rings we now call “Art Deco.” Years later, still inspired by those childhood
memories, he opened Capitol Hill Antiques across the street from his office at the Library of Congress. When the Library expanded into the shop's original location, he moved it to
Virginia, and the name became Silverman Galleries. Antique Jewelry, including Art Deco &
Edwardian platinum & diamond rings continue to be a specialty.
Mr. Silverman has operated Silverman Galleries over 50 continuous years, building a
reputation for quality and integrity, and a valued network of clients who return for special
occasion purchases as well as daily discoveries, and who recommend Silverman Galleries
for buying, selling, appraisal & consultation.
Joined by his wife since 1981, Mr. Silverman maintains a personally chosen diverse
inventory, supplemented by select consignments, with an eye to craftsmanship and
condition, historical interest & beauty.
