Seattle-based jewelry brand Ben Bridge has announced opening of a flagship store downtown. The new 5,300-plus-square-foot retail space is at the corner of Fifth Avenue and Pine Street.
The Ben Bridge flagship is about a third larger than its predecessor, which occupied the space at Fourth and Pike for several decades.
The updated Ben Bridge flagship is on the first floor of the O'Shea Building, a four-story structure from 1914. Across the street is the flagship store of another Seattle-based brand, Nordstrom.
President and CEO Lisa Bridge said the opening marks a "significant milestone" for Ben Bridge. "With 111 years of heritage and over five generations in Seattle, we are thrilled to continue our journey in the city that has been our home since the beginning," she said. "Our new store not only offers an exceptional jewelry experience but also serves as a platform to share the stories of local nonprofits doing remarkable work."
The new flagship carries over a dozen global jewelry brands, including Rolex, which has maintained a presence in the store. The store will also sell a collection of blown glass, an art for which the city is famous. The flagship's interior features an immersion in the "unique atmosphere of the Northwest" using stone, wood, geodesy and moss.
