Rick Hartley, along with his brother, Jim, began training their valuables skills when their father was stationed during Fort Lewis. They shaped a business as teenagers and quickly set themselves apart from other jewelers by matching skill and interpretation with knowledge and highly attuned education.
It was a home-based business for about 20 years, and has spent another 29 years or so in West Olympia, at the intersection of Harrison Avenue and Cooper Point Road.

OUR CUSTOMERS TESTIMONIALS
“The repair of my ring was beautiful and made me very happy. I have been doing business with Hartley Jewelers for a number of years now and would not even think of trying anyone else! Everyone is friendly and ready to help me out. Thanks again.”
Before I started shopping for an engagement ring for my fiance, I did a good amount of research to help me feel confident that I was actually getting what I paid for. I was immediately overwhelmed with a feeling of despair when I stopped into multiple big name jewelry shops and even a privately-owned jewelry shop, only to discover that what I was being told was very inconsistent with the research I had conducted. It was then that I decided to start shopping “long distance”.
I live in Colorado, but i decided to see if my experience would be better with Hartley Jewelers in Olympia, Washington (the town where my parents live). I cannot express how happy I am that I did! It was actually more comforting to deal with Hartley Jewelers over a distance of hundreds of miles than it was to shop locally. (You wouldn’t have believed the stuff that some of the other jewelers said to me that was just plainly not true.) If you are looking for a jeweler that you will be able to trust, I highly, highly recommend Hartley Jewelers. The staff at Hartley Jewelers helped me find the perfect ring, and they even inspected and returned diamonds to their vendors that did not meet their standards. The prices were more than fair and everyone treated me like I was their number one customer. A huge thank you to Hartley Jewelers!
I liked them so much that my fiance and I will be buying our wedding bands from them, too!!
