Robbins Brothers expansion into Seattle, Washington will benefit customers with additional diamonds and collections of engagement rings and wedding bands for every price point and style preference.

Los Angeles, CA – May 29, 2013: Los Angeles-based Robbins Brothers, The Engagement Ring Store announced that it has purchased all the assets of Seattle’s favorite neighborhood engagement ring store, E.E. Robbins in Washington.

Robbins Brothers started as a family-run business in Seattle in the 1920s, with grandfather Ben Tipp who operated a jewelry store downtown. The family moved to California in the 1950s where his son-in-law Eugene opened William Pitt in Pasadena. Robbins Brothers, The Engagement Ring Store was founded by Emerson Robbins and his brother in the mid-1990s in Orange County, California. Emerson went on to open additional independent stores under his own name in Seattle in the late-1990s. E.E. Robbins store locations are in Belltown, Seattle and in the Eastside’s premier shopping destination, Bellevue.

Robbins Brothers focuses on providing customers with a complete and fulfilled engagement experience from guiding them to the perfect ring setting and diamond to planning a memorable marriage proposal. The company plans to offer the same attentive, warm and personalized service that customers experienced at the Bellevue and Seattle locations. Robbins Brothers will also offer shoppers an expanded private label and designer selection of gorgeous and unique styles including halo, vintage, modern, and classic rings. Plus each purchaser will receive a complimentary lighted ring box which has become a customer favorite.

“This is outstanding news for Seattle, and geographically completes the circle of our family’s journey in the business,” said Emerson Robbins. “Robbins Brothers is obviously a retailer I believe in, and because of the quality of their people and their focus on delivering the best customer experience and providing superb quality engagement rings and wedding bands, I know E.E. Robbins clients will be delighted with this announcement.”

“Emerson is an industry icon and has paved the way for the niche business of engagement rings,” said Andy Heyneman, president and CEO for Robbins Brothers. “His integrity, commitment and genuine passion for the customer are renowned. We are incredibly honored to carry on his legendary service in Seattle.”
