It’s hard to believe that we first opened our doors in 1998. Our location in Casady Square followed soon after in 2002, and time has continued to fly in this wonderfully welcoming and nurturing Oklahoma City community. After celebrating 20 magnificent years creating custom treasures, we’re excited to announce that we’re moving!
Our new store in Nichols Hills Plaza will open on June 14, 2019, and we’ll be celebrating all day long to commemorate the location of our new permanent home. The festivities will kick off with a ribbon cutting ceremony at 10 a.m. and continue into the evening with a live artist painting, one-day trunk show with designer Robert Procop, and jewelry giveaway from store owner and custom jewelry designer Valerie Naifeh.
Jewelry is a form of storytelling in its own way, and it’s been an integral part of Valerie’s story for many years.
“It wasn’t until 1992 that everything finally clicked,” Naifeh said. “I won my first DeBeers* award for a triton shell brooch made of onyx and pearl. That was the catalyst that gave me the confidence to eventually open my own store.”
The rest, as they say, is history. With Valerie at the helm of Naifeh Fine Jewelry, our store has seen exponential growth in the community, including being twice named one of the city’s fastest growing companies by the Oklahoma City Chamber of Commerce Metro 50 Awards.
As we embark on this new chapter in our story, we would be remiss not to mention the incredible stories that Oklahoma Citians have allowed us to be a part of over the years. There aren’t enough words to describe the feeling of watching generation after generation make our store a part of the most important stories in their lives.
“My team and I are so honored to have played a part in so many wonderful stories over the last two decades,” Naifeh said. “We’re so proud to celebrate this milestone with our community and we can’t wait to see where we grow next.”
Thank you for trusting us with your precious family heirlooms and for letting our story be your story. We can’t wait to join in the fun with you on June 14!
