About Us


In 1978, Paul & Risa Becker opened Becker's Diamonds & Fine Jewelry in West Hartford, CT. Paul & Risa's mission was to make customers happy and to give the Make It Perfect or "Wow" experience.

Nineteen years later, the Becker Family expanded the flagship store in West Hartford which included an expanded goldsmith shop. In the summer of 2014, Becker's expanded again with the opening of another location in Old Saybrook, CT to reach our loyal customers in the area as well as gain new ones.

For 45 years, Becker's has continually offered high quality diamonds & fine jewelry, along with a vast Estate Department with a varied collection of antique & vintage jewelry and pre-owned Swiss watches. Each location features a Jewelry Service & Repair Studio as well as a complete Custom Design Department.

We have a master Goldsmith as well as multiple GIA Graduate Gemologists on staff. All of our team members are highly trained and qualified to give our customers the "wow" experience they are looking for. General Manager Tom Kelly started in September 1988 taking over store operations allowing Mr. Becker to focus on the direction of the two stores.

Becker’s is now known for being one of the largest Bridal stores in all of New England. The department contains many of the worlds largest quality Designer rings from such companies like Gabriel & Co of NYC, A. Jaffe a 100 year old pillar in the bridal industry, and Goldman which includes such brands of Art Carved & Scott Kay. Becker’s offers Natural mined Diamonds of all sizes & shapes at internet pricing with the benefit of seeing before you purchase.

In 2017 Becker’s expanded it offerings to include Lab-Grown Diamonds. This has proven to be an area of growing consumer interest. In the spring of 2021 Paul Becker decided to retire and pursued a buyer. It was important to Paul Becker that it remained a family business and that the new owner would retain most of the current staff, quality and culture of the wow experience.

In the spring of 2021, that wish came true with the sale Becker’s Diamonds & Fine Jewelry to a family business run by President of the “H6” group, Peter Mouawad. Mr. Mouawad did keep his word by keeping GM Tom Kelly to Manage operations retaining most of the key employees to have a seamless transition. Since the transfer of ownership, Mr. Mouawad has expand the bridal department and revitalized the very popular Estate Jewelry Department. The store celebrated its 45 th Anniversary in September of 2023.
