The History of Champagne Jewelers
Champagne Jewelers has been a leading jewelry store in St. Tammany Parish for more than 65 years. Over time, changes have occurred, but the customers still enjoy the benefits of great customer care. The traditions and reputation of Champagne Jewelers are continuing under new ownership. Amanda Hover, a native of Slidell, has been the manager of Champagne Jewelers for nearly a decade. Experience is a strong point for this new business owner. Amanda has managed stores within large retail corporations, but she found her niche in the family of independent jewelers. She says, “Our goal is to give each customer the feeling of coming home when they walk in our door.”
The most exciting part of being a new business owner is “carrying on the tradition,” Amanda says. Champagne Jewelers thrives on being the best. There are generations of customers that have made Champagne Jewelers part of every milestone and the staff loves sharing those stories and values the importance of each individual’s history behind their jewelry. Amanda travels across the country and to Antwerp, Belgium (the diamond capitol of the world) choosing a unique variety of jewelry—something for everyone. St. Tammany Parish is constantly evolving, and Champagne ’s willingness to grow has kept generations of customers feeling confident and excited about their jewelry. Along with exceptional pieces, customers leave with the promise: “We are going to take care of you!”
Amanda knows the importance of one-on-one relationships with the customers to meet their standard of excellence. She is continuing this relationship with current customers and developing new relationships with those looking for the personal and special feel of a jeweler who is willing to listen and customize their vision of the perfect gift!
