BlogLet’s Talk: Buying Local

We are already in July, which means we’re halfway through 2022. Can you believe it? Where did the time go? For us, July is a month for basking in the sunshine, getting together with friends and family and … you guessed it … partying! The 4th of July is here and we are ready! We hope your plans include some fun in the sun and maybe a trip to our store. Ruby is the traditional birthstone for July, so be sure to come by for all of your July gift-giving needs. 

We’d also like to dwell a little bit on why we think you should be shopping with us, your local jeweler, not just in July but all year round. We’ll be publishing some info and articles over the coming months that will convince you that shopping local for your jewelry is the way to go. Let’s start off with the simple “Top-10 Why-You-Should-Shop-At-Your-Local-Jewelry-Store List”. (We’ll be expanding on these points in the coming months, so be sure to stay tuned!) 

10 Reasons to shop at your local jewelry store: 

  1. Yes, we are expert retailers, but we are much, much more than that: we are also expert jewelers.  We have experts in-store with all sorts of important qualifications, from gemologist to master craftsperson, with specific skills honed over decades of practice and experience. You’re making an investment. Buy from an expert. We know our jewelry.
  2. We stand by our products and services. We will not hide or “go dark” when you need us the most. Our doors are always open and we are always here to help. 
  3. You can see and touch the items at our store. They say a photo speaks a thousand words, but we don’t believe that’s necessarily the case for jewelry. While a photo can give a basic overview of a piece, the true beauty of selecting that perfect item is feeling the weight and seeing the sparkle and quality before you buy. 
  4. We have the tools to properly grade stones and metals. We’re here to educate you on what you have, or what you are planning to buy. We’ve said it before – jewelry is an investment. Make sure you have what you think you have, or are buying what you think you are buying.  We empower our customers with knowledge to make the best decision. 
  5. This goes hand-in-hand with our commitment to standing behind our products and supporting our customers: we offer repairs, servicing, custom design, financing, and several other services not afforded by other or online stores. We support our customers in all aspects of the jewelry-owning experience. 
  6. We live and work in this community and, like you, we want to support our local community. Buying local does just that – it helps foster that important sense of community and helps the local economy. 
  7. Don’t be fooled by online pricing! You need to be comparing “apples to apples”. Online sales may not show all the information needed to make a proper comparison. We give you all the facts on your jewelry, and stand behind all our products. You will always know what you’re buying at HPerry Jewelers.
  8. Our custom-design jewelry services are what truly set us apart from the competition. We are artists. We design and make incredible custom-designed jewelry matched to your exact needs. Work with us and create a legacy piece your family will own for generations to come.
  9. Shopping at HPerry Jewelers is fun! We are here to provide not only expertise, but a memorable experience. We know how to make you feel like royalty! 
  10. We probably know you and your family (and if not, would love to get to know you!) and can help you put a finger on exactly what your loved ones covet and want as gifts. Our wish-list system has made many a gift-maker a hero in the recipient’s eyes! 

Please join us over the coming months as we explore these themes more fully. Until then: Happy 4th of July!
