Boone & Sons Jewelers
In 1966, Boone & Sons Jewelers founder French Boone opened his first store in Washington D.C. with the goal of creating a family business that offered fine jewelry at great prices and even better customer service. In the decades and generations that followed, Boone & Sons expanded to Chevy Chase, Maryland and McLean, Virginia, all the while keeping the small business and familial atmosphere that set them apart.
Today, each of the three locations has a family member on-site, and virtually all employees have been there a decade (or three).
“Trust is our objective: trust in the high quality of our gemstones and attention to detail, and trust with handling customers’ sentimental pieces of jewelry,” says Vice President and G.I.A. graduate gemologist Erik Boone, who runs the McLean store. “Whether it is a 10-carat diamond or a customer’s grandmother’s jewelry that we are tasked with redesigning and repurposing for the next generation to wear and enjoy, we treat every customer the way we would want to be treated.”
Boone and Sons is proud to handle every aspect of the jewelry business, from services such as watch repair, jewelry repair and appraisals (done on-site), to gifts ranging from several hundred dollars to several hundred thousand dollars.
“We want to be someone’s personal jeweler, from A to Z,” says Erik, one of eight members of the third generation of Boones who are leading the company into the next 50 years of service to the D.C. area.
