"A Bellevue Gem - Alvin Goldfarb Jeweler"

Steven Goldfarb

Owner Alvin Goldfarb Jeweler

Introduced by: Wendi Fischer

This morning Steven Goldfarb will discuss the legacy of Alvin Goldfarb Jeweler and the jewelry business. Steven’s father, Alvin Goldfarb, was a longtime Bellevue Jeweler, community leader and avid Seattle Mariners fan. Mr. Goldfarb opened the boutique Alvin Goldfarb Jeweler in 1980, building it into a well-recognized and successful downtown Bellevue business.

In 2006, Alvin retired and Steven officially took over the business. Today people frequent their store for their attention to detail, from knowing costumers by name, to selling beloved brands such as Cartier, Omega, and Rolex. Being greeted by Steven’s friendly Havanese dog usually makes customers feel at home, too.

So join us and hear Steven tell the “rest of the story” about Alvin Goldfarb Jeweler and the jewelry business. And if you are looking for  high-end jewelry, watches and accessories for the holidays, Alvin Goldfarb Jeweler’s is the place to go!
