Welcome to Sartor Hamann Jewelers


Since 1905, Sartor Hamann Jewelers has been the place where Lincoln and Grand Island come for the finest jewelry.  We were Lincoln’s first fine jeweler, founded by Frank Harris and Ernest Sartor.  William Hamann and his son Donald Hamann later partnered with Sartor and the company became Sartor Hamann Jewelers. As a fourth generation family owned and operated company, we are totally service driven and are on the cutting edge of style, fashion, and innovation. 

In 2022 Sartor Hamann lost our long time President and CEO, Don Hamann. Before his death, Don, was full of energy, life, and passion, no matter his age. He was a natural-born leader and storyteller, connecting with people in a way that made them feel special. And he worked hard to ensure Sartor Hamann was a pillar in the community. Since his death our family has vowed to move forward carrying Don's values and legacy with us.

Today, our management team consists of Rick Hamann, President; Jeff Wells, General Manager; Jill Collins, Inventory Manager; Jordan Hamann, Operations; Lynn Hamann Roberts, Consultant and Board Member; and Charles (Chip) Hamann, Advisor and Board Member. The team is highly gemologically educated and respected in the jewelry industry as well as deeply involved in the Nebraska community.

We carry stunning engagement and fashion jewelry collections from top designers, exceptional diamonds, dazzling gemstones, and fine Swiss watches.  Our friendly, highly trained and certified staff is here to help you make your jewelry dreams come true. 

The Sartor Hamann experience is truly unique and is one of the reasons we have been voted “Best of Lincoln” and “Lincoln’s Choice Jeweler” for decades.  We have served generations of families for over 100 years and we treat our customers as friends.  We invite you to browse our website and stop in to any of our three showrooms, Downtown and SouthPointe Pavillions, Lincoln and 3337 State Street, Grand Island.  Welcome to the Sartor Hamann family!
