We built our company, the same way we build our jewelry; from scratch. Portsche’s Fine Jewelry was founded in 2011 and thanks to our many loyal customers, we have been growing steadily ever since. Good old-fashioned honesty, integrity, and the highest quality craftsmanship are the fuel behind the force and the reason we are rapidly becoming one of the most sought after custom design stores in the Northwest.
