About Our Fayetteville, NC Jewelry Store

Hinkamp Jewelers was founded in 1955 by Walter Hinkamp and Robert Tyndall, and has been serving the greater Fayetteville area and beyond ever since. Today, it has kept to its roots as it is still a family-owned and operated jewelry store “by the next generation” – Wally Hinkamp, a GIA graduate, and Donna Hinkamp Warren.
