Zoe and I have been dating for a little over three years and we have gone through a lot of unpredictability with graduating college, finding jobs, and most recently Zoe's medical school search. This past weekend we made a trip out to Pittsburgh to go apartment hunting near Zoe's new medical school, and I decided to surprise her by renting out a room at the beautiful Phipps Conservatory. I wanted to propose in Pittsburgh as a way to symbolize that no matter what uncontrollable circumstances we may face, we can handle anything as long as we have each other. Everything fell into place and Zoe loved the custom ring created by Hamilton Jewelers.

My name is Rose and I met my fiance 4 years ago. 2.5 years into our relationship we started talking about getting married and we began looking at engagement rings. We met Lauren at Hamilton Jewelers. She was so patient and kind! Even after over a year of Scott designing the ring! Finally he proposed February 10th and the ring is everything I could have asked for!! I wanted something unique and fun! Something that I could say I have the only one, and she definitely delivered that! I won't go to anyone else from now on for jewelry!

Rose S.

Love my mani and my bling from Hamilton!

My now husband and I got engaged in Boston in 2014 and moved to the Princeton area about a year ago for work. In search of wedding bands for our 9/24/16 wedding, we stopped into Hamilton Jewelers and were quickly impressed by the knowledgeable staff and their calm and unhurried sales approach. After the sales team brought in a few different sizes and styles of bands for the both of us to try, we happily choose a band that matched my engagement ring perfectly, and one for my husband to compliment mine. After a few minor adjustments, the rings are a perfect fit and we couldn't be happier with our purchases!

I want to personally thank you for the amazing job in HELPING me make one of the biggest decisions in my life. The turnout was a complete success and couldn't have been any better. Thank you so so much!!! It was a pleasure doing business with Hamilton Jewelers.

Our fabulous friend Diane Alicino helped my husband and I find the wedding bands we had been searching for!

When we began our journey to find the perfect engagement ring, we went to many jewelers over several months but left each jeweler feeling more frustrated and confused. We decided to stop at Hamilton Jewelers and the experience we had at Hamilton Jewelers was unlike any of the other jewelers we have visited prior. We worked with Lauren throughout the entire process of creating the perfect ring. She was patient, helpful and professional while working with us. Lauren took the time to get to know my style and what I envisioned in a ring. Overall, I cannot thank Lauren and Hamilton Jewelers enough for creating an engagement ring that I will cherish and love for years to come. Bryan and I will always turn to Hamilton Jewelers first in the future. Thank you for such a positive experience and for helping us with such an exciting event in our lives!

Katie S. and Bryan D.

Here is my ring that was designed by Hamilton Jewelers. I had several diamonds from some old rings of my mom & grandmother. This picture does it no justice. I highly recommend that anyone who's looking to have a piece made go to Hamilton.

Cynthia S.

Each time I catch a glimpse of my new Rolex it makes me smile! It took me many months to finally decide on the new yatchmaster purchase and I couldn’t have done it without Angie’s help. Her knowledge of the products and ability to create a relaxing customer experience has definitely created a customer for life! This is our 2nd Rolex purchase at Hamilton and will surely not be our last.

I got engaged two weeks ago and Bonnie could not be happier. She asks me everyday how I picked out such a perfect ring. Being a graduate student, I was elated the Hamilton team found me something beautiful and high quality in the middle of my budget; it is clear your intention was comfort and satisfaction. The personalized service I experienced was unmatched. Looking forward to celebrating future anniversaries.

Ricky G.

These beautiful rings made their way from Princeton to Italy for a romantic marriage proposal from the love of my life. This year will mark our 10 year anniversary and they are as brilliant and as special as they were the day I was presented with them. Thank you Hamilton Jewelers!


For my wife Luda's birthday, I selected a beautiful emerald and diamond ring from Hamilton. She loves the ring and it was truly a pleasure working with Hamilton and the Palm Beach Gardens team.

When my husband and I were dating, and subsequently engaged, he took his grandmother's diamond to Hamilton Jewelers in 1989 and had it set in platinum with Trillions! In the meanwhile he gave me a smiley face plastic ring in a beautiful Hamilton Jewelers box. He kept stalling and one day we met friends in NYC and unbeknownst to me he substituted this gorgeous ring for the "dime and ring" in my purse. My friend asked why I don't wear my ring and I said, " when you see what he gave me you'll understand " but upon opening it she gasped , then I looked and I gasped and cried and jumped for joy!! Officially engaged as we had a date and now a ring!!! 27 years later we are still so in love! Thank you Hamilton for creating this amazing ring which means the world to my husband and me!!!
June Schechner

I can't thank you enough for all your help and assistance in purchasing the ring. She absolutely LOVES the ring! You guys did an amazing job!!

Anthony M.

A special thank you to Johnny, the service manager, who has handled all of the services on my vintage engagement ring (circa 1890's) with professionalism and care. Hamilton has a wealth of knowledge, and particularly with an older piece such as mine, I rely on their expertise. I have been nothing but happy with the results from routine stone tightening and the attention given to my ring. My husband and I each bought our one year anniversary gifts at Hamilton, and recently requested a professional appraisal from their GIA certified gemologist. We highly recommend and applaud their wonderful and knowledgeable staff.

Here is my clock back from its six months long servicing. It was worth the wait. Thanks

I was a senior at Trenton Central High School, 1965, 50 years ago and my boyfriend (now husband of 46 years) and I had gone to the Lincoln Movie Theater to see a show. After the movie we took a walk by Hamilton Jewelers where the jewelry displayed in the window always light up like sparkling stars. My boyfriend asked me which piece of jewelry I liked the most, so I pointed to the large topaz ring that spoke to me with its beauty. My boyfriend worked all summer and bought the breath taking ring before he left for college. Hamilton Jewelers was the icon of Trenton and receiving a gift from the store was extra special.

Thank you for all of your help over the past year and a half. We couldn't be happier with our choices, and our decision to work with you. You were so helpful, patient, and kind and we felt really at home at Hamilton. It certainly won't be the last time you see us!

We arrived at the PGA mall with excitement & we approach the front of the store only to see a large sign by the front door that says, "TRUNK SHOW" Join us as we welcome Charles Krypell legendary designer! After lots of trying on and admiring Charles suggests to me, "How about I personally design your ring with all the details from the three rings you like into one?" I was ecstatic, a dream come true! My engagement ring was going to be personally designed by Charles Krypell and the stones were going to be hand selected. The time came and my boyfriend proposed and the ring could not be more perfect! There is so much meaning and sentiment behind my engagement ring, it is timeless and beautiful! Thank you Hamiliton Jewelers and Charles for an amazing memorable experience!!!!

Your service was incredible! On the spot, you were able to weld a pendant onto a necklace for my son. Very helpful and courteous. Wonderful store!

Thank you to my husband Jeff for the beautiful diamond ring he bought me for our 30th wedding anniversary from Hamilton jewelers in Princeton, NJ. Terri and her team showed us gorgeous diamonds from their display... but I chose the one that I loved the most, that made me say "Wow!" I appreciate the time and patience both Terri and the Hamilton team had with me as they explained everything to us about their featured stones. PS. I still can’t take my eyes off my ring.

I have always admired the Hamilton store even when it was in Trenton and U.S. #1 North. I finally was in position to buy your fine jewelry and watches. I love to buy my wife anniversary gifts(David Yurman) from your store and I have brought some fine watches(Tag, Mercer, Hamilton,etc) from your fine store. And each year I use to enjoy going to your Watch Fairs. Even though I live in McDonough, Georgia I still enjoy getting your email advertising. I truly have enjoyed your fine products and service.

My fiancée and I had been searching for the perfect engagement ring for months. From New York City's Diamond District to Cartier, no where gave us peace of mind like Hamilton Jewelers did! We worked with Peter, who was recommended by my parents, and who welcomed us warmly and allowed us to take our time trying on various rings. Soon, my fiancé found a ring that she did not want to take off of her finger. I had never seen her so excited about a piece of jewelry! Peter worked with me to make the ring uniquely our own and I was able to propose to my future wife in France this past June. We cannot wait to go back to find our wedding bands. Just like my parents, we hope to be lifelong customers of Hamilton Jewelers.

While I was pregnant with my first child, I had heard of a "push present" from my good friend. It's a gift you get from your husband for pushing out a miracle - your newborn baby. For our first child, my husband selected a beautiful Baume et Mercier watch from Hamilton Jewelers with little diamonds surrounding the face of the watch. My son was a very difficult birth. I pushed for 3 hours, and he finally came out with the doctor's assistance, because the cord was wrapped around his neck. After that very painful recovery, my husband presented me with the beautiful "push present." It meant so much to me. I wear it every day. He is now 8 years old, and one day, he will inherit it, and hopefully give it to his wife as a "push present."

We got our rings from Hamilton, and on the day of our wedding, we ran into our sales associate Lauren while taking pictures on Palmer Square!

First went to Hamilton Jewelers back in January to pick out an engagement ring. Our Jeweler took the time to let me try all the different options and figure out what I liked best. I love that we didn't feel rushed and didn't feel any pressure to buy that day. She took down all the information and told my now fiance to come back when he was ready, with no mention of price. In the end my fiance ended up back at Hamilton as he found that the service and quality was the best around, after months of shopping around. We went back to purchase our wedding bands and had another great experience. After not being at the store for months our Jeweler remembered our names. We will be going back to Hamilton again for future jewelry needs.

Cracked my Rolex on a basketball hoop. Hamilton Jewelers took care of it and made it good as new.

Richard M.

Going into buying an engagement ring I didn't know what to expect. Terri made it extremely easy and smooth for me. The quality of the ring is exceptional and my fiancé really loves showing it off. Already planning to travel back to Princeton from Boston to get our wedding bands next year!

My two favorite Breitling watches were both purchased from my favorite jeweler -- Hamilton Jewelers! For special occasions, my favorite watch of all time is my Transocean Chronograph Unitime, but for every day I wear its distant cousin, the Superocean Chronograph!

Love my David Yurman watch from Hamilton Jewelers!

Carolyn C.

The staff was very friendly and inviting, especially the gemologist, who took the time to discuss my gemstones. As a first-time customer who had a less expensive purchase, it is important that I feel respected in the store. I may be young, but as I get older, my jewelry purchases will increase in expense and frequency. If I remember that when I was spending $1,000 in a store and I was treated very well, when I need to buy a $10,000 necklace, I will be more likely to go back to that store.

Best watch buying experience ever, my saleswoman went above & beyond. Thank you!

Amethyst pendant from Hamilton Jewelers... the perfect push present for me and my little angel, born February 11, 2015. I feel so blessed! Thank you Dave & Hamilton Jewelers.

Rebecca P.

My favorite piece from Hamilton Jewelers is my pair of diamond earrings that I received from my mom as a present for my 16th birthday. These earrings have been with me as I finish high school in Princeton, commute and take my ballet classes at The School of Pennsylvania Ballet in Philadelphia and when I was in Boston for 5 weeks this summer studying with the Boston Ballet School. No matter where I go or what I have done during the past two years, these earrings have been with me to remind me of my mom and all the sacrifices she has made to give me the amazing opportunities I have experienced in my 18 years.

Kennedy J.

A beautiful shop, a great selection, and very kind service. Thank you for the winding box!

I stopped in Hamilton Jewelers because I had noticed that my engagement ring had two loose diamonds. The salesman who helped me was very friendly, knowledgeable and very professional. He examined my ring and told me that he would have the jeweler take a look at it to see what could be done and that he would call me and let me know the following day. He called the next day just as he had said with a price and even had my ring cleaned and polished for me when I picked it up. My ring had never looked so good! He even threw in a polishing cloth and jewelry cleaner in my bag to make sure I could keep my ring looking good. That's what I call service!

Happily married for 12 years and happy Hamilton clients for the same. Engagement ring, wedding bands, countless special occasions... all shared with jewelry from Hamilton.

I had been dating my husband for 7 years when we got engaged. I was so excited and thrilled. Well about a month in I started noticing issues with my ring that he got from another jewelry store. It always looked dirty and started losing stones. One day when we were at our mall walking around we decided to go into Hamilton Jewelers to just look. We talked to a saleswoman who helped us and reassured us that what was happening to my ring shouldn't be. She sat down with us and we designed my dream engagement ring and wedding band. I have been in love ever since and my husband is so happy with how it all worked out. We haven't had any issues with this setting and we couldn't thank you enough.

What a wonderful experience I had with Hamilton. From working in retail for years, I know the value of good customer service and I just have to express my gratitude towards how helpful and personable they were with me. Not only did they have my engagement ring sized in just a week, but she also made it hassle and worry free. I will tell everyone about my positive experience! Many thanks.

Hamilton Jewelers has been our jeweler since we got engaged and we'll be married 15 years this year! They have been with us through many upgrades, this one being most recent -- they had it all set up and my husband dragged me to the mall about a "watch" he wanted me to see -- thank God I was getting my nails done but wasn't exactly dressed for this kind of surprise!!! They were all excited and ready for me- they are the best, customer service goes above and beyond from Jim the manager to Darlene our personal sales person, Jen Kothe, and all those who work there -- they know us by name and we even just go in and visit when we are at the mall just because of the strong relationships we have built with them.

My romantic husband casually walked me into Hamilton Jewelers in Princeton, (he knows I love to look! A girl can dream, can't she!) a knowledgable, saleswoman offered her expertise and the next thing I know I am placing gorgeous rings on my finger! Did I mention I have my husband's grandmother's gorgeous engagement ring and never had a wedding band worthy of it. Now I do!! That day is known by our family and friends as one of the most romantic anniversary dates ever. Thank you Hamilton Jewelers! You have created an heirloom piece for generations to come.
