In 1957, a young man fresh from Denmark by the name of Alf Kiilerich began a business legacy in the Maple Ridge community. Hammond Jewellers was born! Officially trained as a watchmaker, Alf came to Canada to pursue his dreams. Two years later he married his beautiful wife Birgit, and together they established a quality business that has survived the varied economic waves over the past five decades. Alf was a clever business man, but more importantly cared about his loyal customers. He always emphasized quality customer service and truly fair pricing, which continues to be at the core of Hammond Jewellers business philosophy. Such values, consistently proven over the years, have brought generations time and time again to find elegant pieces of jewellery, watches and giftware to celebrate their special life occasions.
After many years, and with Birgit's encouragement, Alf felt it was time to retire. In hearing this, Doug Davey, from The Gold Room Jewellers (est. 1978), decided to take on the ownership of Hammond Jewellers. Because of their shared values. Doug recognized the opportunity to continue the legacy that began over half a century ago. Alf was invited to ease into retirement by staying on part-time, thus transitioning well the Hammond Jewellers legacy. When Alf was asked, "What has meant the most to you in your life as a businessman?" Alf answered with a sparkle in his eye, "I like people. There's never two alike. You can group them, but there's something special in everyone." This mindset has led Alf and his staff to care for their customers and understand the value and importance of what they provide in their products.
Over the last decade Doug along with his brother and sister-in-law, Dean and Laurie Davey, have proven to uphold the reputation of Hammond Jewellers to deliver quality products with fair pricing. Laurie's enthusiasm for delivering exactly what the customer wants and her dedication to giving each customer a personal experience, has enabled Hammond Jewellers to consistently be voted as the #1 jewellers in the Maple Ridge and Pitt Meadows community. A true family business, expect to see Emma (Doug's daughter and third generation jeweller) making her way into the jewellery industry. Emma has a background in business specializing in consumer behaviour, is a recent GIA graduate gemologist and has a keen eye for custom design. She brings fresh new ideas and marketing savy to the team. She will allow Laurie to take some hard earned rest as she transitions into taking over the family business.
