For 90 years, Kay Jewelers has offered exceptional jewelry with great customer service. But long before becoming a nationally recognized jewelry retailer, Kay was the simple idea of two enterprising brothers from Reading, Pennsylvania. In 1916, Sol and Edmund Kaufmann opened the first Kay Jewelers in the corner of their father’s furniture store.
Initially, Kay offered far more than jewelry. Some of our original products included eyeglasses, musical jewelry boxes, and electric razors. We also offered to make a “home sweet home” with complete silverware sets and even kitchen appliances and radios. Although product offerings have changed through the years, shopping at Kay has remained a valued tradition.
