History

Shah & Shah Distinctive Jewelers began nearly a century ago during the Prohibition era.

Established in 1929, Shah & Shah opened the doors to its first store on 921 F Street, NW, where it became an institution for over five decades.

In 1983, spanning into its third generation, Shah & Shah was re-imagined by the founder’s grandson, Michael Shah. To best suit customer needs, Michael transitioned the business from the storefront to its current "speakeasy" style salon on Connecticut Avenue, overlooking the heart of downtown Washington, DC. Today, Colin Shah, the newest in Shah & Shah’s long line of family jewelers, has taken the helm of an 84-year legacy and the destination for Washington’s discerning clientele.

Shah & Shah Distinctive Jewelers, creates an intimate, private setting with bespoke attention to you. Jewelry selection is an experience to be savored, and Shah & Shah makes it one with both appeal and impact.
