Kayes Jewellers was established by Michael Kosciukiewitcz in Rhyl, North Wales in 1948. We believe our surname was dramatically shortened due to the need to reproduce it in expensive gold leaf over the shop front.
Now owned and operated by the founders two sons, Nick and Tony Kaye, Kayes is an 'old school' business specialising in diamonds, gemstones, fine jewellery and vintage items. Kayes offer a bespoke service to each and every client. There's no head office, management layer or commission hungry sales team to negotiate. Our (short) name is over the door and we are here to help you personally.
Are you part of large high street chain?
Not at all, Kayes is a third generation privately owned and operated business. Directors Nick and Tony Kaye are always available. Kayes was established in 1948.
So you've been in business a long time?.
Nick and Tony Kaye have nearly sixty years combined experience. The business has been dealing in diamonds and fine jewellery in Chester since 1965 .
What else is special about your business?
We specialise in diamonds, coloured gemstones and fine jewellery. We don't sell watches or branded jewellery. There are many jewellery shops, but very few real jewellers.
Where is your business situated?
Kayes are based in the very centre of historic Chester, our fashionable double fronted premises being at the entrance to the elegant Edwardian St.Michaels Row.
Can I buy online from the Kayes website?
We've deliberately disabled the shopping basket on our website. Diamonds and fine jewellery need to be seen first hand before purchase. Call us if you can't visit us.
Do you provide other services?
Kayes offer a full range of traditional expert services. We can offer expert advice on all matters relating to diamonds and fine jewellery. Service matters to us.
