I have several friends that have shopped at Hamilton Hill, but I had never visited this store until yesterday. It was a great experience - friendly, knowledgeable staff and beautiful jewelry! Thanks for your warm, welcoming atmosphere.

We have been shopping with Hamilton Hill for several years now. This is our favorite jewelry store!!!! (Actually, it would be fair to say it’s our favorite store, period.) The staff is amazing, helpful, knowledgeable and always entertaining. They always manage to find the perfect style for us. Most importantly, we have always felt welcome and comfortable in the store. They have very unique pieces with a wide variety of price points. I can’t say enough good things about them, but you won’t be disappointed if you stop in.

What an AMAZING shopping experience!!!!! I have never seen a jewelry store like this. The atmosphere was relaxing and the sales team was laid back and knowledgeable. The music was magical. I smiled the entire time I shopped. A magnificent assortment of jewelry. If you know you want to give that special gift or add to your own collection..... I am SURE Hamilton Hill has the perfect item for you!!!!

Hamilton Hill is in one word...Amazing! Sarah and her crew really care about their customers. They do whatever it takes to find you that special piece. All with the Signature Hamilton Hill style that they are known for. If you are looking to treat yourself with a new piece of jewelry or that Engagement Ring that you just will not find anywhere else, go to Hamilton Hill. You will not be disappointed!!!

Sarah and her team are some of the greatest people to work with. I brought my wife into Hamilton Hill a couple of weeks ago and Sarah spent over an hour going through jewelry with her and finding what she likes. She then sent me an email of my wife’s “wish list”. I just bought her first piece from that list and she absolutely loves it! I highly recommend Hamilton Hill!!

Hamilton Hill Jewelry is not just jewelry, it’s wearable art! The creativity and attention to detail, make every piece a one of a kind. I highly recommend visiting their amazing staff and inviting atmosphere.

Love this store (and the people)! Sarah Hill has consistently been an aesthetic partner in finding pieces for my wife, a watch for me, and generally supportive when it comes to adornment. I know we don't normally tell ourselves, "I need a jeweler" in the same way we might have an attorney, CPA, plumber, etc., but trust me, as with the others, life gets a little easier.

Ken at Hamilton Hill made putting together and purchasing an engagement ring an absolute breeze. The entire staff was incredibly friendly and were nearly as excited about the ring as I was! I cannot recommend this jewelry store enough

We love Hamilton Hill! They have the most original, unique and beautiful jewelry that we have found anywhere in the Triangle. There is no pressure when you go in. Rather, they take the time to get to know you and what you are looking for and then they take the time to work with you to find just the right piece of jewelry. If you haven’t been to Hamilton Hill, you should definitely check it out.

The friendly staff at Hamilton Hill helped me make a new wedding band to match my engagement ring after my first one (made at another location) continuously broke. The new band is absolutely gorgeous and I anticipate it will last me a very long time! I've already had tons of compliments on it. Wish I could've gone here the first time around! Would highly recommend.

Well curated selection of jewelry ranging from classic to modern styles, with transparent prices- including hard to find designers. Staff are friendly, nonjudgmental, and helpful. Custom work by their in-house goldsmith is very well priced, the work is gorgeous, and he is great to work with. Sarah Hill will also provide great design input.

I cannot say enough about Hamilton Hill Jewelry. My husband and I designed my wedding ring there with Sarah 7 years ago with multiple very special family stones as well as some purchased ones and we also purchased my husbands band. My wedding ring is stunning! Sarah made this such a special and memorable experience for us. Recently I commissioned a bracelet for a very specific & special purpose and Sarah and Ken were remarkable at listening to my design purpose and then helped me to translate what that looked like in my head into a piece of jewelry that is so beautiful and so special to me. Sarah is such a lovely person. She is friendly, knowledgeable, current, professional, always so personable and is such a good judge of style in terms of matching items to my character and personality. Ken is so talented with design and what he is able to create and craft with his hands is magical. I highly recommend Hamilton Hill! It is a special place with very special people.

I'm not one to write reviews, but my experience in this establishment was worthy of one. A wonderfully curated store, with some of the most unique jewelry I have ever seen. Shopping here was not only a feast on the eyes but also a learning experience guided by the owner (Sarah?). I will undoubtedly shop here again and hopefully one day I can take advantage of their custom wedding ring service (fingers crossed).

Sarah and Ken resized a ring that was of special significance to me. They were incredibly kind and helpful. It was so refreshing to deal with good people who care about their work. I am now a customer for life.

Sarah is a truly wonderful human. I reached out to her while my wife and I were on the hunt for my wedding band. Sarah was incredibly accommodating and supportive. She was reassuring with difficult sizing, and the ring fits absolutely perfectly. Sarah had a wide selection of unique men's bands, offered us a fair price, kept us well informed of our order, and put so much thought into every detail - from offering engraving to including a stately ribbon around the ring box and a buffing cloth to maintain the finish (since we can’t visit her in person as much as we’d like to). The selection of jewelry she curates at Hamilton Hill is stunning. We are a difficult pair to shop for and left with plenty of treasures added to our wish list.

My partner and I had a great experience working with Hamilton Hill for our wedding bands! Within 20 minutes my partner found a ring that he loved. Despite the fact that I was both picky and clueless, Sarah was extremely patient as we worked through various options and figured out that I was looking for. She then connected us with Kai, who designed and created a custom ring for me that is SO beautiful and perfect! I can't recommend them enough, especially if you're looking for a for a low-pressure environment.

We purchased our wedding rings from a Swiss designer that does not have retail outlets in the US. When we asked the designer where to service and size our rings, Hamilton Hill Jewelry was at the top of the list. It was certainly worth the drive from Charlotte to Durham. Sarah and the team were extremely professional and offered great customer service. They resized my husband’s band and redid the brushing. It looks beautiful. (I should note that I brought this ring to four jewelers in Charlotte, all of whom had reservations about doing the sizing because of the unique design.) The team at Hamilton Hill is highly skilled and knowledgeable. And the selection of jewelry is forward and high-quality with respect to design and elegance. The collection is not what you find at a typical jewelry store. For future jewelry purchases, we will be making the drive back to Durham!

I got my engagement ring resized here and it was such a great experience. Kai and Sarah are so incredibly friendly on the phone and in person. The ring was reshaped, taken down 2 sizes, and now fits so perfectly! Even in Covid I felt incredible safe as appointments were made, they were efficient, and the end result is better than I could have imagined. They showcase gorgeous jewelry, I 10/10 would recommend! Thank you so much!!

I had my wedding rings resized and it was a great experience all around. They were quick to get in touch with me after my inquiry, and being able to text about my appointments was a nice touch. The turn around time for resizing my rings was super fast, and the rings turned out beautifully. I would definitely recommend.

Sarah and her staff are fantastic and have a great eye for design. They have the best selection of modern jewelry that I’ve seen (along with some more traditional styles), at a wide range of price points. They also have a very nice selection of men’s jewelry. I can’t recommend them highly enough.

I have been the joyous recipient of designer jewelry from Hamilton Hill, as well as having them repair a couple of heirloom pieces that have been in my family and are very valuable to me. Both times, I cannot say enough about the service, the craftmanship and the way Sarah and her team always "know" what will and how to make that experience with them simply perfect.

Sarah was a huge help to me in finding my sister a 40th Birthday present. I gave her a little info on my sister's style and she sent me some option and I was able to pick one and order online. Sarah packaged it beautifully and had it to me sister a day early! This was no small thing considering I didn't give her much time to turn it around. My sister loved it and I loved how easy the whole process was. Thank you Sarah!

Great experience with this jewelry store! Kai is the person I was working with and I had a special designer pendant and it is hard to find a jeweler that carries Humphrey jewelry. I called and they immediately found what I needed and ordered it, I am out of state so when it came in, they immediately called me and send it out that same day to me! Great communication by Kai and wonderful customer service! Thank you Hamilton jewelers!

There is nothing like a beautiful piece of jewelry, and when a selection of pieces are currated especially for you it makes choosing a little simpler. The piece I chose will make me smile for years to come. Thank you Sarah Hill for your impeccable service and helping choose the perfect piece. Keeping eye on a few others too....

We have had several jewelry pieces (wedding bands and engagement ring) designed by Ken Weston. The pieces are beautifully crafted and continue to bring much joy. My wedding band needed some slight repair that was expertly completed by Ken. Hamilton Hill is a great place to consider when looking for jewelry that will last for generations.

Hamilton Hill is our favorite jewelry store. Sarah (and everyone on staff) is lovely to work with. You can expect a warm, personal shopping experience regardless of if you're selecting something special or simply browsing. The collection is beautiful and the store is immaculate.

Ken Weston is an incredibly creative and talented goldsmith. I gave him a pretty vague description of a bracelet I wanted made and he somehow translated that into exactly what I wanted and surpassed my expectations! Wish I could include a photo of his beautiful work.

Hamilton Hill offers a terrific jewelry buying experience. From fairly inexpensive, but super cool earrings, to stunning high-end and custom pieces, they cover all the bases with carefully curated selections, thoughtful advice, and caring customer service. They have lots of options online too!

Sarah Hill was so accommodating and easy to work with. Even though we can’t go inside the store during the Stay at Home order, she brought the bracelet I’d been dreaming about, to me in the courtyard. There was no pressure to buy and none was necessary. The bracelet is exquisite! I love shopping at Hamilton Hill. Each piece of jewelry is unique and very special. This bracelet is so comfortable I will want to wear it every day! Thank you Sarah!

Amazing experience from beginning to end! Sarah and Ken did a great job taking my vision for an engagement ring from concept to reality. They were attentive to my needs throughout the process and shared frequent updates so I could come along with them through the creation of this ring. I’ll definitely be going back to them with all my future jewelry needs!

We had a wonderful experience at Hamilton Hill! As two brides, they helped us with two engagement rings and two wedding bands, plus a special custom necklace. We went in just to look around, with no knowledge about fine jewelry, and Sarah and Kai patiently helped us with zero sales pressure. They are both incredibly talented and offered helpful suggestions to suit our individual styles, including a matte gold ring option, which turned out beautifully. We had many visits to the store as we narrowed down our decisions. We love our rings and are thrilled with our overall experience. We can't recommend Hamilton Hill highly enough!

For my son's graduation present my wife and I wanted to give him something special. Our thought was a ring with an heirloom sapphire and the letter E for Emmett. I drew up an idea and after shopping several local jeweler's and found them either to expensive or unwilling to work with my idea I walked into Hamilton Hill and met Ken Weston. He was friendly and very receptive to our design. We immediately went over the details and settled on a fantastic price. Needless to say the finished product is breath taking. Emmett was pleasantly surprised and overwhelmed. Thanks again to Ken for his professionalism and all if Hamilton Hill.

The team at Hamilton Hill is amazing!! Both my mom and I had family stones turned into the most beautiful pieces. Of course we were nervous about something happening to our stones and Ken, Sarah and everyone else treated them with such care. Ken was great to work with throughout the entire design process - he completely understood what I was hoping to have made. And the final outcome is beautiful!! I cannot recommend Hamilton Hill enough!
