A company’s mission statement expresses its purpose for being. Jim Bartlett Fine Jewelry’s mission is to “Help people create and celebrate life’s events, and express heartfelt emotions by giving and receiving fine jewelry.” They understand how important life events are to individuals and to couples and they love partnering in the celebration of them. “Our most important service is that we take the time to listen to the feelings and emotion being expressed and work diligently to find the perfect jewelry to help make that statement,” Jim says. “Oh, and we love to open a bottle of champagne with our clients to help celebrate!”
In 1999, after several years as a custom jeweler, Jim decided to expand his offering to include fine jewelry. After carefully seeking out the perfect diamond, he and “Hearts on Fire” diamond company partnered to offer “Hearts on Fire”, the world’s most perfectly cut diamond, to Longview and East Texas. In the years to follow, Jim introduced several other of the finest jewelry designers, including Simon G, Tacori, Spark, and his own line of diamond jewelry and watches. Jim’s experience, commitment, and education have made him Longview’s expert in diamonds and colored gemstones.
When you walk into the Jim Bartlett Fine Jewelry store you can expect to see your dream ring in person as they carry and sell finished rings, not prototypes or mountings. You might even fall in love with a piece and take that piece home with you the same day. Often, they can size a ring to a perfect fit while you wait.
“We have brides who have chosen their ring before they have found their future husband! It’s never too early, and often a lot of fun to begin the search early.” Although the store stocks live, complete engagement rings for immediate delivery, Jim Bartlett Fine Jewelry can custom design and create your ring, which may take up to 4 – 6 weeks.
Jim Bartlett Fine Jewelry is in a new location at the Village Shopping Center, which Jim says is bright, comfortable, open, and inviting, making it a great place to work and shop. Customers will appreciate the team’s knowledge and their willingness to listen and fulfill their needs. “Everyone on our team is experienced, energetic, and is knowledgeable about all the lines we carry. What we don’t know we will find out. We can help you learn what truly makes a diamond beautiful, we can explain precious metals, and we can create jewelry customized to your personal needs.”
Being a local jeweler, Jim Bartlett Fine Jewelry, is passionate about what they do, they also give back by supporting many local charities and events to the benefit of our community.
Needless to say, Jim Bartlett Fine Jewelry always strives to connect to their customers. From engagements, weddings, and anniversaries to birthdays and graduations, Jim and his team will help you create a lifelong collection of beautiful jewelry to represent the most important events in your life.
