About Kay Jewelers
Sol and Edmund Kaufman worked on the idea of retailing products and in 1916 opened their first store in Reading, Pennsylvania calling the company Kay Jewelers. The idea was to sell unique products like musical jewelry boxes, electric razors, and eyeglasses, besides jewelry. The store also retail products for the home including radios, kitchen appliances, and silverware. The company is part of Sterling Jewelers Inc. acquired and turned into a subsidiary of Signet jewelers in 1987. It is the No. 1 specialty jewelry brand in the country and has a massive presence in the Middle East. As of January 31, 2015, the company operated 1,094 stores across 50 U.S. States.
