At the end of March, we decided to install solar panels at Harris Jewelers’ Rio Rancho store. Like most Americans, going green and reducing our impact as individuals and as a business has come to guide many of our decisions. As such, we’re thrilled to display our jewelry under lighting facilitated by solar energy.
All April babies are lucky enough to have a timeless gem as their birthstone- the diamond.

Harris Jewelers is thrilled to announce that we are now stocking Charles Garnier of Paris products at our Rio Rancho store. The European jeweler has a long history of crafting the very best contemporary jewelry basics and employing all of the latest tools in the creation of one-of-a-kind jewelry pieces.
Recently many jewelry stores in the Albuquerque area have been selling diamonds at extremely low costs, along with certificates. Consumers tend to trust the authenticity of a stone and a jeweler when these papers are involved, but buyer beware! There is a lot more that goes into buying a quality diamond and a certification can’t always be equated with excellence. At Harris Jewelers we sell both certified and uncertified diamonds so long as our staff of certified gemologists have assessed the stone and deem it to be of superior quality.
