Kravit Jewelers Unveils New ‘Jewel Box’ Location in Oceanside, Bringing a Touch of Rodeo Drive July 06, 2023 (0 comments)


Oceanside, NY--Kravit Jewelers, a nearly century-old family-run business, is elevating the local shopping experience by opening its new location in a refurbished Capital One bank building in Oceanside. The move is a grand leap from its traditional strip mall emporium, and according to co-owner Idayne Kaye, it looks like a gem that belongs on Rodeo Drive.

According to a Newsday report, the revamped, free-standing location is three times the size of the old Kravit store, measuring an impressive 3,500 square feet. Its decor reflects a combination of luxury and warmth, featuring high-end materials such as marble, terrazzo, and onyx and light fixtures reminiscent of diamond eternity bands.

The report noted that the space includes a boutique devoted to Rolex watches and a "diamond salon," where customers can enjoy privacy while selecting the perfect stone. A full bar on the showroom floor also offers champagne, espresso, cappuccino, and a snack menu.

Kravit's product mix comprises Gucci fine jewelry and watches, the company's own Italian-made KJ1927 private label, and Idayne’s eponymous collection, whose bold designs have been adorned by the likes of Joan Jett, Criss Angel, and Miley Cyrus.

The move was prompted by the need for more space and a desire to create a unique shopping experience, steering away from the convenience of online shopping. “We wanted to put ourselves in our own lane,” explained Idayne, per the report.

The report stated that the sibling owners, who describe each other as best friends, aim to create an experiential visit to the new store. They plan to host various events, from cars and cigars nights in collaboration with Porsche to live music, wine tastings, VIP yoga classes, and bridal fashion shows.

Their dedication to keeping their father's legacy alive is embodied in the new store. “It was the right thing to do at that stage of our lives, to maintain and keep this legacy going,” Bennett Kaye said in the report.
