Once upon a time … There was a small local jewelry shop in Ohio. Its founder made simple promises to the community: to treat customers like friends and exceed their expectations. Well, the founder kept that promise and over the years customers became life-long friends. This small local jewelry shop grew over time but it never forgot where it came from, nor the customers who were the bedrock of its success.
Of course this local shop was none other than Yelton's, founded by my father-in-law, Roy H. Yelton, in 1988. From our modest beginnings we've always been about you, our customers. It's a promise and legacy we proudly continue to this very day.
Now, when you shop at a local jewelry store like Yelton's, it's a unique experience that you wouldn't get online or with chain retailers. There are so many benefits that come with choosing local, family-owned businesses, but here are three which really stand out.
1. Amazing Selection
You might think an online or department store might have a bigger, better selection to offer you. However, the real truth is that they buy in bulk, so you're stuck with generic jewelry, rather than a variety of unique options. With a local jeweler like Yelton's, you'll find hand-selected, carefully crafted, one-of-a-kind pieces from world-class designers. Our exquisite collections include stunning Le Vian pieces and Hearts on Fire diamond selections.
If nothing in particular makes your eyes sparkle, consider creating a custom design. At Yelton's, our talented team is here to create the perfect piece just for you. Using state-of-the-art computer aided design (CAD,) we can bring your unique and exceptional ideas to life.
2. Unprecedented Quality
When you purchase fine jewelry online, you have to rely on pictures. What appears dazzling online might actually be a dud in real life. However, with a local jeweler, you're able to see the quality of the piece first-hand. Plus, shopping local means there will always be someone who's happy to answer your questions. If you shop online, you have to call or email. Chances are you'll have to wait to get an answer to your questions and oftentimes it's a bot on the other side of the conversation.
3. Life-Long Relationships
A local jeweler is not just some place you go to buy a piece of jewelry once and then never return to. A local jeweler is your family jeweler, the place you go to for all your jewelry related needs.
At Yelton's, we value your priceless moments and are honored to be part of them. To us, you're not just another sale. When you shop with us, you become a part of our family. Most online or chain stores are worried about their sales quota. They look at their customers as a number, rather than a community member to make a genuine connection.
