Bateman Jewellers are Trusted Saskatoons Trusted Jewellers , and did you know that they are The oldest independent jewellery store in Saskatoon?
Bateman Jewellers isn't just a business; they are a 65 year family tradition. In 1945 World War ll was ending and the public embraced life and family with renewed vigor. George Bateman returned from the war where he served as an instrument technician. With jobs and products being scarce, George Bateman, the true entrepreneur that he was, opened G.W. Bateman Jewellers in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan. He set the tone for customer service excellence and continuous improvement. For 47 years they grew a Batemans loyal family of clients with their sincere service, quality of products and ability to change with the times. In 1992, the Batemans daughter Marilyn and son-in-law Ken Lorman bought Bateman Jewellers from George and Milly. They operated it under the same loving standards until a car accident forced Marilyn to retire in 2005. Long-time Bateman employee, gemologist and watch technician Cam Kripki and gemologist, gemstone dealer and friend John Scarfe, teamed up to purchase Bateman Jewellers and with family and long-time friends, continue the Bateman tradition of offering:
Superior jewellery, watches and accessories in a relaxed and respectful atmosphere. They always offer personal, individualized service, expertise and information sharing. Check out their website here for a full list of their products and services ...and have a look at their specials here for a bargain!
As well as implementing industry best practices Batemans continually upgrade their skills and knowledge. All employees take the Jewellery Education Training System (JETS) program to enhance their expertise and skills and they continue to evolve as a progressive and forward-looking provider of quality jewellery products, accessories and giftware that will meet their clients changing needs. Something you may not know is that at Batemans you can create your own individual piece of jewellery. Whether it is a family emblem, your childs artwork, a company logo or something to showcase your artistic ability, their 3D jewellery design software and milling machine allows them to recreate your design and produce a one-of-a-kind priceless possession! Batemans strongly believe in giving back to the community, and proudly support such things as Care and Share, United Way, local teams and organizations, and as business grows their community support list grows.

Trusted also appeared in this weekends Sunday Sun, there was an interview with the founder Sara Wheelwright as she spoke about how Trusted came about and what is involved in becoming a Trusted business. We would like to thank Tom for a great article ..however there were a few minor mistakes that we would like to clarify...Trusted or Trusted businesses do not contribute toward the Workers Compensation Board...Trusted does however check to see if companies have workers compensation INSURANCE ( this is to safeguard clients....and is there to make sure if an employee of a firm who is doing work for you on your property sustains an injury..that YOU the client isn't liable) , also we check to see if a business has a history/record of bankrupcy..if they do we do not allow them on the site. Also we only offer 3 Trusted businesses / category because if we offer too many then it becomes tricky to chose one trusted business from the other and we are here to save people time, money and stress...we do the research so that they don't have to ! Truly Trusted is THE Smart & Simple Choice!
