When you may have exchanged your gold wedding band and put a matching one on your left ring finger, you made a trusting promise. You made your history. If you're lucky to be in a relationship you too have made a promise. Ours is a history you can trust and since 1948 we continue the ADDESSI promise along with my wife and our 3rd generation jeweler adult children too.

Over 100 years ago my grandfather Allesandro Addessi emigrated from Fondi, Italy when he was only seventeen. So excited to be here, he worked very hard, traveled back to Italy only once again. He again came back to America and settled in Danbury, CT, the Hatter's Capital of the USA. Allessandro worked as a hatter, his sweetheart Gilda came here shortly thereafter and they were married. Together they had three sons and a daughter, Angelina who sadly died at infancy.

Gilda and Our Graandfather lived a wonderful life for many years but sadly when Allesandro suddenly died at 52, things would change quickly. The oldest of his three sons had to leave High School to support his Mother and his two younger brothers. He began as an apprentice for a fine jewelry store in Danbury.

With a fierce entrepreneurial streak he opened his own Addessi Jewelry Store in Danbury in 1948. After a very short period the stores business increased and he was becoming successful. My father Rick, joined his brother in the Danbury store in 1950. Shortly thereafter their youngest brother joined the team too.

In 1966 they decided they wanted to add a new location. They focused on Ridgefield, Ct. and drove here one Sunday to check out a potential location in this quaint town. In their 1963 Ford, they parked across the street from our current location on Main Street. They watched the block for the entire day noticing how hundreds of newspapers and goods were being purchased at Squash's. The space was available, so they decided to secure it on the spot. Our father Rick opened our store in 1966, and has enjoyed many friendships and success until his semi-retirement and final passing in 2014.

We miss him dearly. He was my Dad, partner, confidant, friend and the best Dad a son could have.  For most of my adult life, I have apprenticed with our Mom and Dad. My family has observed their charm, their business acumen, skill, and superb client servicing. Mom with her many talents for merchandising and window and store dressing has been the heart and soul of our design gifts and inspired us always. We are proud to continue a family tradition that was born in 1948, but an opportunity that was given to us over 100 years ago.

Our family is dedicated in servicing and providing you with the finest exact piece of fine jewelry, a special gift or restoration that can reflect on you and your next generations It's through this dedication of great pride, the utmost care and service that our history and promise, can make yours.

Thank you our Loyal Clients and our new friends and clients visiting us each day.
