Let Us Be Your Guide for Jewelry Shopping

Are you embarking on a milestone birthday and planning to indulge in a piece of jewelry for yourself? Perhaps your anniversary is approaching, and you are looking for that perfect piece to commemorate all those years spent with your partner. Or maybe you are looking to take the big step and propose. No matter the reason to buy jewelry, every scenario requires careful consideration and extensive research. Is the stone’s strength appropriate for everyday wear or will it be reserved for special occasions? Where was the stone sourced? Is it 14k gold or 18k? What is the difference? It can take months to research the quality, craftmanship, and longevity of a piece of fine jewelry, and not to mention the questions that may arise along the way. At Hamilton, we call this “The Buyer’s Journey,” and we are here to be your guide. 

Like any other investment purchase that requires a team of professional assistance Hamilton takes immeasurable pride in the support and education given to customers through every step. From becoming aware of the perfect piece, considering the purchase, doing the research, deciding to buy, and finally making the purchase, our team of experienced and knowledgeable professionals will be there. Let us step you through the ways Hamilton supports customers. From The Hint Program to cleaning services to customized pieces, we are the best of the best in both style and customer service. 

Get the Hint?

The first step of purchasing jewelry is the awareness stage. This is the stage where the customer knows there is a day on the calendar that is approaching. One that requires a celebration or a token of their love and thoughtfulness.  

To aid customers through this stage, Hamilton offers a clever service called The Hint Program. This program is an entirely new level of gift-giving support. The Hint Program allows customers to browse Hamilton’s vast collection of jewelry and timepieces to build a wish list. These selections are then saved in a database which can be accessed at any Hamilton location. But here comes the best part. Hamilton then sends an email to the gift-giver with a notification stating a wish list has been created for a particular date and celebration. Hamilton then acts as a shopping assistant for the buyer. This is not your run-of-the-mill gift registry. This is gift-giving at its best. No more gift buying uncertainty and no more returning unwanted jewelry that may not be your style.

Customization

Another facet of the awareness stage takes jewelry buyers in an exciting and truly personalized direction. Hamilton offers jewelry customization services that allow customers to work with our master jewelers to design a piece of jewelry for their loved one. From the design phase where a master jeweler draws the piece you would like to create, to creating a wax model of your piece, and ultimately seeing your design come to fruition, this is a master class in customer support and style.

If customization is not in the cards for you at the moment, there are ways Hamilton can still customize a piece of jewelry, like with this yellow gold men’s signet ring. Personalize this piece with Hamilton’s engraving services for the perfect personalized piece of jewelry.
