Bigham Jewelers welcomes Rolex, Bucherer purchase announcement

Woman-owned, independent jeweler Kathy Bigham has been a Rolex partner for more than 25 years

NAPLES, Fla. (Aug. 29, 2023) – Family and woman-owned Bigham Jewelers in Naples looks forward to continued partnership with Rolex after announcement of the purchase of historic Swiss retailer chain Bucherer on Aug. 25. The acquisition adds Bucherer’s retail to family-owned independent jewelers that are Rolex partners, like Bigham Jewelers, an Official Rolex Jeweler and Authorized Service Center, giving the consumers a choice of where to shop.
“Opting to purchase a Rolex from a family-owned establishment that prioritizes service and product knowledge boasts a team of knowledgeable and cordial individuals has truly redefined my perception of the Rolex buying experience,” said long-time Bigham Jewelers Rolex customer John Paul Figaro.

Rolex timepieces have been an integral part of the Bigham Jewelers’ exclusive collections since 1996 when Bigham Jewelers became an Official Rolex Jeweler and Bigham opened its first 2,800-square-foot jewelry store in Naples. A decade later Bigham opened the prominent diamond-shaped, 28,000-square-foot building at 2425 U.S. 41 N., called the Bigham Galleria.

While the Rolex purchase of Bucherer is a significant investment in the future of the company, Bigham Jewelers is also investing in Rolex with an expansion of sales and service areas as well as a new Diamond Boutique.

“Bigham Jewelers has been a valued Rolex partner for more than 25 years because of our exceptional customer service and knowledgeable staff,” said Kathy Bigham, founder, president, and CEO of Bigham Jewelers. “Family-owned official Rolex Jewelers offer a more personal touch to the Rolex experience, therefore continuing to be important to the Rolex brand.”
Consistent winners for consecutive years, Bigham Jewelers again won the Naples Daily News Choice Award and Gulfshore Life’s Best of the Gulfshore in 2023. Bigham Jewelers was named leading independent jeweler by Town & Country Magazine and voted “Coolest Store” in America by Instore Magazine.
