Princeton, N.J.—Hamilton Jewelers is officially branching out into home goods and giftware.
 
The fourth-generation, family-owned jeweler opened Hamilton Home in Princeton, New Jersey this fall.
 
Though the jeweler has been selling home goods and giftware since its founding in 1912, this location marks its first dedicated space to the categories.
 
The store stocks a variety of home décor items and gifts from brands including Baccarat, Ginori 1735, Simon Pearce, William Yeoward, Juliska, and John Derian. 
 
Shoppers can browse several categories of luxury gifts, including antiques, crystal, china, silver, wedding gifts, housewarming gifts, baby gifts, entertaining items, home décor, barware, stationery, linens, and seasonal items.
 
The location will host a series of trunk shows and other special events.

“Hamilton Home has been several decades in the making,” said Anne Russell, executive vice president of Hamilton Jewelers. 
 
“Giftware has always been an important part of our business and we are thrilled to be able to dedicate a full retail space to the category – the fact that we are opening during our anniversary year adds to our already celebratory mood.”
 
The company celebrated its 110th anniversary in 2022, introducing a capsule collection as part of the festivities.
 
It featured several one-of-a-kind jewels inspired by the company’s designs through the years.
 
The 110th anniversary capsule collection includes several one-of-a-kind jewels.
The 110th anniversary capsule collection includes several one-of-a-kind jewels.
 
The collection was revealed in December at a cocktail party in Palm Beach, Florida, hosted in conjunction with the Natural Diamond Council and fashion publication The Daily Front Row. 
 
Hank Siegel, president and CEO of Hamilton Jewelers, noted the milestone anniversary called for honoring the business’ heritage, celebrating its present, and imagining its legacy in the future. 
 
He said, “As we continue to evolve as a company, we often reflect on our four-generation heritage, which is ingrained so deeply with our core values, as we consider what’s next—and always with the knowledge that our past should inform but never define our future.”
 
In addition to the new home store, Hamilton Jewelers operates three locations in New Jersey and Florida.
