Passionate and highly respected, Jeremy and Melissa Oster are the driving force behind Denver, Colorado’s intimate watch and jewelry boutique, Oster Jewelers.
Open since 2002, Oster Jewelers is elegant and inviting, utilizing streaming light to highlight exceptional timepieces and jewels. In doing so, the space conveys a redefined image of luxury: luxury without pretense.
“We keep the environment very laid back and comfortable,” Jeremy shares. “The breadth of our inventory, the knowledge that our team upholds and most of all, our enthusiasm and willingness to help is what keeps customers coming back to Oster Jewelers.”
A passionate watch collector himself, Jeremy takes great care selecting products offered at Oster Jewelers. The boutique’s assortment includes timepieces by leading houses of horology, including Arnold & Son, Audemars Piguet, Bell & Ross, Bremont, Carl F. Bucherer, Dior, Giuliano Mazzuoli, Hublot, NOMOS Glashütte, Parmigiani Fleurier, Speake-Marin, Ulysse Nardin and Zenith. In addition, Oster is known for working with up-and-coming independent watchmakers such as Grönefeld and Romain Gauthier.
“We offer a great variety of brands, price points and aesthetics,” Melissa adds. “There’s always something new in store. We are very fortunate to carry so many brands that are incredibly respected and sought after.”
Staying ahead of the curve, Jeremy and Melissa attend Baselworld and other annual watch exhibitions in Switzerland and bring back news and developments from their partner brands to share with customers and the Oster Jewelers team.
“This year we added NOMOS Glashütte to our lineup, with great success. The quality for the price is something very special. The designs are fresh and original. This brand appeals to a new clientele for us—those who appreciate the uniqueness and integrity that is offered by NOMOS Glashütte,” Jeremy explains. “We are also adding Zenith to our ranks, which is wonderful for many of our collectors who appreciate the rich history of the El Primero movement and the superb quality and design.
“At the top end, we are thrilled to see the evolution of the Parmigiani collection. The latest 1950 collection, including the Tourbillon, offers classic and understated design with uncompromising quality. Audemars Piguet remains consistent as a market leader. As the brand has become more exclusive, the appeal to our clients has only increased. The dedication to quality and hand-craftsmanship can only be admired.”
Oster Jewelers’ commitment to horology is exercised through all client interactions – both one-on-one and in unique group settings. Founded by Jeremy to celebrate and support the life of a watch collector, the Denver Watch Enthusiasts is an intimate collectors’ community that gathers monthly at Oster Jewelers. Together, this group explores the latest trends, technologies and advancements in watchmaking, and recent happenings have centered on hands-on opportunities with highly limited timepieces. Recently, Michel Parmigiani made a personal appearance and was delighted to welcome keen enthusiasts and fans of the brand for a special evening.
A broad assortment of jewelry from leading designers and up-and-coming artisans serves as the ideal complement to Oster’s watch collections. Among the represented brands are collections by A & Furst, Carrera y Carrera, Buccellati, Pomellato, Rahaminov, Wellendorff and dozens more.
“We have really maintained our commitment to offering a ‘healthy’ balance between the watch and jewelry categories,” Melissa shares.
The bridal category at Oster Jewelers has gained notable success in recent years by focusing on quality and the original designs of a few important bridal partners. The picture is completed by drawing upon the strengths of its in-house design team.
The custom jewelry business has grown very well, providing a great service to attract new clients as well as pleasing existing clientele, particularly in the bridal segment, according to Jeremy and Melissa. With an eye for uncompromising quality, Oster carefully selects incredible diamonds such as the Starburst diamonds from Louis Glick. A passion for gems ensures that rare finds are always available for keen clients.
Oster Jewelers’ core business is locally driven, though they have a large following from around the country, as well as a number of clients overseas. It keeps local, national and international clients updated through its website, www.osterjewelers.com, and through various social media platforms including Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, Pinterest and Meetup.com.
Among its customers from all corners of the world, the store welcomes many professional athletes and VIPs on a frequent basis. “We have major athletes from the Broncos, Rockies and Avalanches as customers, as well as celebrities, high-profile politicians and industry leaders who trust us with their business and confidence,” Jeremy says.
With an absolute commitment to quality customer care, carefully selected fine watch brands and a wide selection of designer jewelry and watch accessories, Oster Jewelers is well poised for another decade of success.
