The Bridge Family
100 years of experience
In 1912, Samuel Silverman, a fine guild watchmaker, opened his first store in downtown Seattle. Ten years later, his daughter Sally married a man named Ben Bridge, who joined his father-in-law’s company as a partner. When Sam moved to California in 1927, Ben purchased Sam’s interest in the business, renamed the store Ben Bridge Jeweler, and created a legacy of service, excellence, and value that continues to this day.
Expansion across generations
Under the leadership of Ben's sons, Herb and Bob, the company opened a second store in the early 1950s. By the 1960’s, they began to expand into malls and street corners across the west. Today, the company is managed by Ben’s grandsons, Ed and Jon, and expanded across the western United States and into British Columbia, Canada. Five generations of Bridges work at the company: Marc (VP of Marketing), Lisa (VP of Education), Rebecca (Appraiser), and Zachary (Personal Jeweler). Although in 2000, Ben Bridge Jeweler became a part of Berkshire Hathaway, Inc. the company remains family-run.
Attention To Every Detail
We care about things like how a piece of jewelry feels in your hand. Whether your bangles make a satisfying chime when they jingle together on your arm. The mechanics of a watch as you glance at it on your wrist. The way your diamond sparkles just so when it catches the light. We take pride in the fact that our Quality Control system is legendarily tough: we only put our name behind the best possible pieces that will last our customers throughout their lives and from generation to generation.LEARN MORE
