The History of Kay Jewelers

KAY Historical Storefront

A HISTORY OF LOVE

For more than 100 years, a gift from KAY has symbolized love and gratitude.

It all began with the very first storefront, which opened in Reading, Pa., in 1916. Back then, customers could find eyeglasses, music boxes, silverware, appliances, and razors among the gifts of jewelry.

A lot has changed since then, but thankfully, love lives on. KAY Jewelers, now part of Signet Jewelers in Akron, Ohio, has grown quite a bit over time. As the number one jewelry store in America with more than 1,000 stores, KAY has had the honor of being a part of countless love stories from coast to coast.

Everyone deserves to receive and give love. It is upon this steadfast belief that we've devoted ourselves to providing beautiful, affordable and accessible jewelry to all. From classic must-haves to the latest fashions, our selection of quality jewelry is second to none. Just like the friendly, knowledgeable jewelry consultants in every KAY store who are dedicated to helping you find the perfect expression of your love and gratitude.
