We welcome everyone into Isadoras Antique Jewelry and strive to offer the most genuine experience while shopping with us. We do so by offering our expertise as well as a breathtaking selection of one of a kind, antique items. Always remembering that our client's happiness is the essence of our business.
Located above Seattle Washington's historic Pike Place Market, for four decades Isadoras has curated and sold beautiful pieces of antique jewelry. Owned and operated by Laura Dalesandro since its inception, every piece in Isadoras is handpicked by the owner. She and her daughter travel the world seeking out pieces of age, beauty, craftsmanship and originality. And while many purveyors of antique jewelry carry both real and reproduction, Isadoras has maintained a steadfast loyalty to antique and vintage pieces only.
After 40 years in business, we believe more than ever in the investment worthiness of antique jewelry.
