“It was exactly what I wanted and BEAUTIFUL!”

My fiancé and I were looking for a very specific type of engagement ring that we could not find in any run of the mill jewelry store. We are from Philly and I was in DC for work and we happened to stop in—I loved Mia Gemma’s style of jewelry so we decided to have our ring custom made there. My ring was very specific so it was quite the process. Irene and Odaybea were so helpful and their designer Brian did an excellent job! It was exactly what I wanted and BEAUTIFUL! I was intent about having a “dainty” ring with a pave halo and words can’t describe how beautifully it was set—I still can’t believe how perfect Brian made the halo. In addition, after we picked up my ring my fiancé decided to get one of their custom rings for his band. I would definitely recommend them if you are looking for an engagement ring—they have beautiful and unique jewelry to choose from. I would also recommend them if you are looking to get something designed. Overall it was a great experience.

“The service is excellent and thoughtful.”

I went to Mia Gemma to purchase a birthday gift for a dear friend. I had a price range in mind as well as the type of gift I was looking for. Odaybea was amazing! She showed me what was available in the store, as well as suggested a piece to bring in the next day. Not only did she bring in that piece, she was thoughtful enough to bring in two slightly different pieces in the same price range. I ended up with a beautiful necklace for my friend. It was wrapped in beautiful packaging I was so excited to give it as a gift.

The service is excellent and thoughtful, and I love the fact that all of the jewelry is artisan made and unique.

I don’t know why it took me so long to go into this GEM of a store! I will always use them for my special and unique purchases for gifts and for myself!

“…Always meeting my high expectations.”

Mia Gemma is the best Jeweler in DC. They provide personal, individual designs, always meeting my high expectations with my taste in jewelry. I would highly recommend Mia Gemma for wedding rings and personal designs. I enjoyed their Jewelry events… It is so exciting to learn about jewels and precious stones that can be designed into wonderful pieces.

“My best jewelry shopping experience ever.”

It was my best jewelry shopping experience ever. Irene Barbieri, owner of the place explained the difference between stones and finally recommended the ring which my wife loved.

After that she helped me to adjust the size. Since I was on the business trip I left the ring and she took care of contacting with the artist and sending me the adjusted ring over the USPS.

Thanks, Irene!

“Each piece is truly a work of art…”

Mia Gemma is a lovely boutique with very fine, unique jewelry. Each piece is truly a work of art, something no one else will have. Irene and Odaybea are so friendly and knowledgeable about each designer’ work and the quality of fabrication. Mia Gemma is one of my favorite shops in all of D.C.!

“Couldn’t recommend them more highly.”

This place is fantastic. I have used them for years, purchasing my wife’s engagement ring here, her wedding band, and other assorted jewelry. They have great relationships with artists and take real care in advising customers and keeping them up to date on their orders. Couldn’t recommend them more highly.

“The ladies at the shop were so excited to see us…”

My husband surprised me with my engagement ring from a little shop he found on his way to work one day – Mia Gemma. He had purchased other jewelry there for my birthday and Valentine’s Day so he knew I liked the jewelry they sold. He wanted to make sure the engagement ring fit when he gave it to me, so he coordinated with Mia Gemma and took me in blind folded one day to have them size the ring. After we were engaged, we went back to buy our wedding bands. The ladies at the shop were so excited to see us and were so helpful in finding us wedding bands. They even gave us a bottle of prosecco to celebrate our engagement.

“…Most gorgeous and unique pearls I’ve seen.”

A new boutique in Del Ray, Mia Gemma features unique, handmade jewelry, handbags and accessories. Most of the jewelry is made by local artists. The pieces are primarily made of gemstones; they also have some of the most gorgeous and unique pearls I’ve seen. A little pricey, but their items are spectacular.

“Unique jewelry designs!”

I had a lovely experience at Mia Gemma. The selection was great and the customer service was very good while I was selecting my ring.

I think they need to increase staff training on the computer system but I didn’t mind being the guinea pig too much!

“…Striking, genuine gemstones that ooze sophistication…”

Mia Gemma’s new F Street space may be about the size of a jewelry box, but its contents are as breathtaking as anything you might wish for in your own.

Costume jewelry this boutique’s baubles aren’t — they’re expensive. But owner Irene Barbieri lines her cases with striking, genuine gemstones that ooze sophistication, yet manage to stay grounded enough for everyday adornment. And the selection travels far beyond diamonds, sapphires and pearls. It’s limited edition and one-of-a-kind. It’s crocheted metal earrings, stunning strands of cobalt-blue beads, a sparkling green drusy agate ring.

“When something is all gold and diamonds, it really limits you,” Barbieri says. “This lets you experiment with your own style.” Read More »

“…an overall wonderful experience.”

Mia Gemma is a gem of a shop! The selection of unique one of a kind jewelry is outstanding and the staff are incredibly helpful giving you an overall wonderful experience. Truly a must see when you are in the district.

“…Unique, but still elegant and luxurious.”

I was so pleased with the stylish selection at this store. Each piece stood out on it’s own and the selection was very diverse. Most jewelry store offerings seem so bland and unoriginal to me. The pieces I viewed at this location were unique, but still elegant and luxurious. The pieces were very reasonably priced as well. I will definitely be heading back for another purchase in the near future.
