Our History

A Motorcycle, Some Diamonds, And A Dream

Embark on a captivating journey with Washington Diamond, where a man's motorcycle, diamonds, and a dream ignited. In 1969, during the days of Easy Rider with the strains of Born to Be Wild on the radio, Robert O. Daube began our story with a unique idea to share his love of diamonds, quality jewelry, and the nontraditional. Spinning off from his father’s antique treasury, he roared throughout the greater Washington DC area on his motorcycle from Bethesda to Georgetown to Falls Church, as a diamond dealer and jewelry expert.

As he sought estate jewelry and traded diamonds, Robert crafted a cherished asset that still defines us today: an impeccable reputation for unparalleled service, the finest gems, and outstanding reliability. Join us in celebrating our legacy of extraordinary customer care, remarkable craftsmanship, and a passion for exceeding expectations.

Built upon a foundation of integrity, Daube's Jewelry evolved into a family business when Robert's brother Richard joined in 1974. However, it was in 1981, with the addition of Tom, the youngest Daube brother, that deeper roots formed. Together, they crafted a simple yet powerful mantra: Take exceptional care of each customer, be a contribution to their happiness, and be fair.

Recognized for their contributions to the industry, Robert and Tom were invited to join the esteemed New York Diamond Dealers Club as the business continued to evolve. With a reputation for exceptional work with customers as well as with the best of jewelers in the Washington DC area, and nationwide, the brothers again expanded their reach and rebranded as Washington Diamond.

We’ve never operated like every – or any - other jewelry store. We've created a unique environment that fosters passion and provides an extraordinary experience for everyone we meet. Every member of our staff becomes a fine jewelry expert. Through Tom's leadership, we understand the value of knowledge, effective communication, and, above all, listening.
