During college, one of my favorite things to do was to shop at Hamilton Jewelers, a New Jersey based high-end retailer of fine jewelery that has been family owned since 1912. In fact, many of the treasures in my home and office were bought during those early years living on the East Coast.
(It all began when I began making money and became financially independent. I’d reward myself by purchasing gold-rimmed William Yeoward coffee cups with matching saucers. I still remember walking back to the college campus with a gift-wrapped Hamilton Jewelers package in an embossed, cream colored bag, only to arrive, unwrap it as my roommate was still in class, take it out, brew a fresh pot of coffee, and sip out of it, enjoying the fruit of my labors. To a college student, dropping $200 or $300 on a coffee cup was a big deal.
I’ve never regretted it. In a long line of luxury purchases, those gold-rimmed cups still sit in my office to this day and whenever I’m working on a big deal or studying a potential investment, I enjoy them with freshly brewed Douwe Egberts coffee.)
Anyway, Hamilton Jewelers has a branch in The Gardens Mall in Palm Beach, which is currently scheduled for major upgrade and renovation culminating in the Holiday season this year. They have released renderings to show how the newly improved store will look.
If you are ever in Palm Beach, take a few moments to go visit Hamilton Jewelers or check them out online. Personally, I adore them. Here are the pictures of the upcoming renovation …
