The Timeless Gift of Fine Jewelry


“Jewelry is timeless,” says Jacob Stafford, manager of Stafford Jewelers. “This is just one of the reasons it makes such a special gift.”

As the holiday season approaches, many fine jewelry gift purchases will be made at Stafford locations at Kenwood Towne Center and in downtown Cincinnati. “The holidays are such a romantic, feel-good time for people,” Stafford says. “And jewelry is such a perfect gift because every piece is unique. We can help you pick something that the person is going to wear every day, so when they look at it, they think about the person who gifted it to them.”

Stafford says the holiday season is special is part of the reason so many people come in to purchase diamond engagement rings this time of year. “When someone proposes to someone over the holidays, they are creating a memory linked to the season,” he says. “Plus, the holiday season presents some great opportunities for romantic proposals.”

The professionals at Stafford carefully select and inspect each piece of jewelry that comes into the store. Stafford says the company is always mindful about selecting unique items that won’t be found at other stores and about selecting the “very best quality.”

“We want people who receive Stafford Jeweler gifts to keep them for a lifetime,” he says. “By making sure everything is of the very best quality, we know it can withstand a lifetime of wear and be passed on to the next generation.”

Stafford says watches, especially finely crafted Swiss watches, are a popular gift for both women and men. “We offer the largest selection of fine Swiss timepieces in the Tri-State, with the most knowledgeable staff on hand to help anyone pick out the perfect timepiece for that special someone.”

Stafford Jewelers carries several Swiss brands, including Audemars Piguet, Breitling, Citizen, Omega, Carl F Bucherer, International Watch Company and Tag Heuer. The company also stocks French-designed Cartier watches.

The company, which is celebrating its 20th anniversary (the Stafford family has been in the business for nearly 40 years), has long prided itself on a team of well-qualified professionals, which includes three GIA (Gemology Institutes of America) gemologists. Stafford’s also employs an in-house custom jewelry designer, who uses high tech equipment not typically available in most jewelry stores, including state-of-the-art microscopes and a laser welding machine.

For those worried about selecting a holiday gift that isn’t a perfect match for the recipient, Stafford offers peace of mind with a generous 10-day return period for unaltered jewelry and watches.
