About Us

Welcome to Kathe's Jewelry

Kathe’s Jewelry has been charming the Cooper/Stuyvesant Town neighborhood for the past 25 years. Owned and operated by father and daughter team Jonas and Kathy Rueda, Kathe’s Jewelry brings their family’s warmth and energy to the business of luxury.

A Bit of Their History

Jonas began his training in jewelry early. Born and raised in Ecuador, he was trained in the trade from an early age. Years later, here in the US, his daughter Kathe (pronounced ‘Kathy’) took to the family business, training at schools such as FIT and GIA, and working at uptown jewelry stores until coming to work at Kathe’s with her father eleven years ago. Their pleasant teamwork and skill draw plenty of customers in the area — and out of the area. Customers that have moved to places like Long Island, New Jersey or Florida still mail in their jewelry to Kathe’s because they trust them.

“We’re a full-service jewelry store, from watch repairs to ear piercing, and metal repair to crystal replacement. We also buy gold, silver coins and diamonds. We’ll help you find the perfect piece for your upcoming event or restore your antique jewelry to like-new condition.” Jonas, Kathe, and all of the Rueda Family

What Our Custumers Says ?

I’ve been here to get my silver shined, watch batteries replaced, and a fashion ring fixed (stone fell out and one of the prongs broke off). They did an excellent job. Service is quick and friendly, and prices are reasonable. I highly recommend Kathe’s!

Cannot say enough good things about this place. Wonderful business, nice people running it – I hope it stays around forever! They revived a watch that had been out of commission for years, made me so happy!!

This shop is GREAT!!!! I’ve been coming here since the early 90’s and it’s always been the same, great customer service and ALWAYS super friendly. They do everything to make you happy. I’ve brought jewelry, scrapped jewelry, resized jewelry and cleaned jewelry. You can’t go wrong with this place.
