The Kaya Family

Owners Kerim Kaya and Belinda Buchanan met and joined forces in 1990, traveling the country and selling their own handcrafted jewelry to local shops. After a successful initial year of traveling the country, the two settled into their first retail shop in Portsmouth, NH the following year. Soon after they opened a second location in Newburyport, MA. Working side by side for five years, they made the ultimate commitment and married in 1996; solidifying the Kaya legacy. Today, the couple and other members of the Kaya family can be found working in the company store assisting clients, creating/designing jewelry or fulfilling custom work.

I knew exactly what I wanted and Kerim worked with me to find the exact stone and designed the ring to be even more beautiful than I had envisioned. I absolutely love it and highly recommend Kaya Jewelers. I know I'll be back again when ready to design my next piece! Thanks so much! "
