Welcome to Kappy’s!
Kappy’s Fine Jewelry is a family owned and operating jewelry store. They began humbly in Brooklyn, New York and in 1947 founder, Simon Kapp, moved the store to South Beach, Miami. Simon’s son carried on the family tradition of taking good care of customers and offering high quality jewelry. This tradition continues today with Steve Kaye – Simon’s grandson – the 4th generation to offer professional services, expert jewelry creation, watch repair, and personal relationships with an emphasis on the most important person – YOU!
With a personal touch that never pressures the customer, Kappy’s specializes in Bridal and Anniversary sets, including custom designs to satisfy every taste. Steve is a GIA-Certified Gemologist who tailors custom pieces to the customer’s design wishes, right before their very eyes. Having grown up on the knees of his father and grandfather, for whom personal service was paramount, Steve continues to provide quality and build real relationships with his clients, many of whom are repeat customers celebrating new milestones.
Customers who frequented the South Beach location now visit Kappy’s in Palm Beach County, introducing their children and grandchildren to the Kappy’s Fine Jewelry family. This is an important part of Kappy’s long-term success, and a demonstration of Steve Kaye’s enduring philosophy – that large, impersonal jewelry chain stores cannot offer customers the quality and personal care Kappy’s provides every day.
When an order comes in for a custom-designed piece, Steve works closely with the customer to choose from a vast selection of diamonds and other precious and semi-precious gems to complete the piece to the customer’s exacting specifications, based upon a model created using state of the art computer-assisted design (CAD). Need design ideas? Kappy’s offers a wide array of catalogs to help you make your diamond dreams a reality.
In addition to custom jewelry design and fabrication, Kappy’s carries a full line of gold (14kt, 18kt, etc.) and platinum jewelry, in all shapes and sizes of diamonds and beautifully colored gems, available in sizes ranging from 1/2ct to 10ct. Steve has years of experience at the bench performing repairs on rings, bracelets, and all brands of watches, including Rolex, Cartier, Movado, Tag Heuer.
Kappy’s also buys pre-owned (estate) pieces (jewelry, precious metals, gemstones, silver, and watches). Your valuable pieces can be appraised on-site, to ensure the most current values. Steve also provides insurance replacements for his customers.
Kappy’s is pleased to be the exclusive Palm Beach County dealer for Trollbeads, an Italian glass and high quality silver line originating in Denmark and featuring beautiful, colorful glass beads and exquisitely detailed silver beads, bracelets, earrings, and necklaces.
Custom design and fabrication, diamond and gem jewelry sales, watch and jewelry repair, estate buying and selling, and appraisals to safeguard your valuables — all offered in one location. Try getting this kind of attention at your chain jewelry store! Be sure to stop by and let Steve and his staff introduce you to the warmth and tradition that is Kappy’s Fine Jewelry.
