Naifeh Fine Jewelry is not your typical jeweler.
At Naifeh Fine Jewelry, quality and attention to detail make gems and precious metals even brighter. Specializing in boutique, small and high-end jewelry designers, as well as custom jewelry design. Naifeh Fine Jewelry at Nichols Hills Plaza in Oklahoma City is nearing 25 years of offering one-of-a-kind jewelry to Oklahoma.
Naifeh Fine Jewelry has humble roots. Valerie Naifeh worked for two other companies for nearly 14 years before opening her own business. She started as an apprentice to a fine jewelry designer in Tulsa, Oklahoma. The designer's business had grown, and needed a jeweler. The commercially trained jewelers they brought in could not do it the way the designer did, and so they needed someone to learn and create jewelry their way. An apprentice was sought, and that is where Valerie got her start.
She later moved to Oklahoma City to open a second store for the designer in 1987. In 1991, she began working at Samuel Gordon Jewelers in Oklahoma City doing sales and buying. She began designing custom jewelry for clients at this company, and Valerie Naifeh Designs was born from there.
In 1998 Valerie took her knowledge and skill in jewelry design to open her first boutique store in Balliets at 50 Penn Place. Within four years, her company experienced such phenomenal popularity that she needed a stand-alone store. In 2002 Valerie moved Naifeh Fine Jewelry to Cassidy Square Shopping Center, where business sales increased enormously. As the business started to outgrow the space it was in, Valerie began looking for a new location. The coveted space Ruth Meyers Boutique had occupied for many years became available, and Valerie jumped at the opportunity. After nearly two years of renovation, Naifeh Fine Jewelry moved into its new expansive and luxurious space on Avondale Drive in June of 2019.
Today, Naifeh Fine Jewelry is a full-service jewelry store with an extensive array of jewelry. The store carries some of the most sought-after Jewelry Designer Brands such as Robert Procop, Erica Courtney, Temple St. Clair, Lika Behar, Armenta and Todd Reed. Proudly, Naifeh Fine Jewelry is the only store in Oklahoma that represents these jewelers. Every line of jewelry represented at Naifeh Fine Jewelry adheres to very, very, very high standards of quality.
Naifeh Fine Jewelry is recognized as the finest establishment for custom work and creates a remarkable amount of custom designed jewelry. Clients who commission Valerie to create custom jewelry receive an original work of art designed to express their unique understanding of beauty and fashion. As Valerie says- "Why buy a piece of jewelry when you can own a work of art?"

From our Customers
I took some cuff links in for repair. They're about 30 and 25 years old and have more of a sentimental value to me than monetary value. The team was very respectful of my concern for their safety and gave me a very detailed report of their condition and potential repairs. I was very impressed with the finished cuff links and the care and attention they gave to my valued items. We are lucky to have great craftsmen in OKC for jewelry.
Kaycee is a fantastic sales rep. She listened well, asked questions, and went beyond to help me find the right gift. They have a lot of interesting pieces. Additionally, the entire Naifeh team was friendly and welcoming. Excellent customer experience... I highly recommend choosing Naifeh for your next fine jewlery purchase.
