Local jewelry expert Sherrie Beckstead doesn’t just love to accessorize. She also loves a glass of wine at The Ritz-Carlton and a trip to see a movie at the Mosaic District.
As a principal at the luxe, local jeweler Liljenquist & Beckstead at Fairfax Square in Tysons, Sherrie Beckstead knows a thing or two about beautiful baubles.
Recently, the Old Town Alexandria resident launched her first line of jewelry that combines her expertise with a cause she cares about. The Lockkeepers Collection features lock- and key-themed pieces ($75-$2,495) with 50% of the sale proceeds going to the nonprofit the Trust for the National Mall, where Beckstead serves on the National Advisory Council.
Here, she shares some of her favorite fashion and beauty finds, plus what she loves about living in Northern Virginia.
“The 18-karat Rose Gold & White Diamond Key from my collection reminds me that we unlock our dreams, and that we are the key to the future.”
“I like Angelika Film Center & Cafe at Mosaic District for date nights. It has a great theater and fantastic food.”
“This Prada clutch is so timeless, yet edgy, with the bright-pink silk interior.”
“Classic with a serious dose of edgy. I dress around my jewelry.”
