For nearly 80 years, Martin Binder Jeweler has been a key part of the Valparaiso community, playing a role in countless marriages, anniversaries, birthdays, holidays, and other special occasions. Over the years, they have built a reputation as a trusted destination for clients around the Region seeking honesty, integrity, and fair pricing.

Martin Binder Jeweler is a family-owned jeweler offering a collection of premium and custom jewelry and timepieces within an accommodating range of price points in a 9000-square-foot showroom. Collections include Rolex, Tudor, PANDORA, Lagos, and their exclusive “By Martin Binder” line of bridal, pearl, and diamond pieces. Their customer-centered philosophy helped build their reputation beyond that of a simple jewelry retailer.

“Simply put, our clients come first,” said John Scott, marketing manager at Martin Binder Jeweler. “We keep them in mind with every decision we make, down to the details that few stores consider. While we’ve certainly grown, we still work hard to maintain the same level of charm, character, and class that our founder, Martin Binder, instilled in the company nearly 80 years ago.”

Whether front-of-store or behind the scenes, staff are educated, experienced, and accredited to offer clients a unique experience.

“The services our support staff provide play a major role in making Martin Binder special,” Scott said. “Their knowledge and years of experience allow us to provide our clients a full-service experience. Timepiece services, jewelry repair, custom jewelry design, wax-casting, 3D rendering, appraisals, and engraving are just a few of the additional services we offer behind the curtain.”

The exclusive “By Martin Binder” collection includes pieces made possible only by globetrotting.

“Our owner, Bob Flude, frequently travels to the jewelry, diamond, and colored stone capitals of the world to source the best possible materials for use in our product,” Scott said. “By doing so, we skip several middlemen in order to provide our clients high-quality, dependable products at a better value.”

Above all, the team at Martin Binder is proud to be a part of a community that has trusted and supported them for so long. They have partnered with several local nonprofits such as the Valparaiso Family YMCA to help make a difference in the lives of families around the Region.

“We have clients who have been with us from early days when they were children, and their grandchildren are now walking through our doors shopping for engagement rings,” Scott said. “It's amazing to think that we've had the good fortune to play a small role in our clients’ big moments for generations.”

Martin Binder invites clients to find their next big moment this month. From February 1 through February 14, the jeweler is hosting a Valentine's Day sale; shoppers can save up to $100 in store and online. Martin Binder recently redesigned their website and now offers online shopping. In addition to the Valentine's Day sale, they have scheduled several in-store and online events throughout the year, so keep an eye on martinbinder.com as well as Instagram and Facebook.
