The Adeler Story

Jorge, his wife Graciela and his two daughters, Valentina and Wendy, came from Argentina to the United States in 1973. With a passion for colored gemstones honed by his background and travels through South America, he and his wife opened Adeler Jewelers in 1975. Through the years his reputation for creative and exquisite design showcasing unique stones, exotic pearls and ancient coins in one-of-a-kind designs would propel him to open 7 locations on the eastern shore.

As the years went by, Adeler Jewelers became a two generation “family” business when Valentina graduated from University and went on to attain her Graduate Gemologist degree and joined Jorge and Graciela. Soon there after, Wendy, after graduating from University completed the foursome team.

In 2001 the family decided to focus all of their energy and talent into their “Flagship” store in Great Falls Virginia. 20 minutes from the nations capital, this two story design showroom features hundreds of custom jewelry pieces designed by Jorge and crafted by his skilled and talented master gold and platinum smiths, in his on-site workshop.

As the family has grown the third generation of Adeler’s are already “cutting their teeth” in the family business. From phoning the clients to let them know that their jewelry work is completed, to keeping the glass on the showcases gleeming, the five grandchildren are already involved and learning the trade.

Custom Jewelry Design - if you can imagine it, Jorge Adeler can create it

It seems the word "recycle" has been a bit overused lately. This being said, did you realize that by simply re-fashioning or re-designing a piece of jewelry you are actually "recycling"? One of the virtues of heirloom jewelry is that the component parts, as in the metal and gemstones used, can actually be reused. One of our specialties is not just custom jewelry design but rather custom re-design. So take a look at in that jewelry box and consider what pieces you have that no longer suit your style, are broken or perhaps just need a little updating, and make and appointment. After all, while our design consultations are ALWAYS free of charge, the results can often be priceless.
