About Kit and Retiring Dec. 23rd 2014
As you may know we are retiring after having a retail store over 27 years. We have done a nationwide search trying to find an honest jeweler with the same quality and integrity to buy our store and be there to help our 3 generations of customers. After September we will stop trying and only focus on our jewelry work. Our store is located in downtown Gig Harbor, Washington.
Kit Kuhn’s store is called Kit- A Jeweler Designed for You.® , and is on Harborview drive, on the waterfront.
After Dec. 23rd we will still have our website with many of our beautiful pieces for sale and later after some well deserved break do a few select custom pieces.
Kit Kuhn’s store/shop has a wide variety of unique jewelry, mostly one of a kind or pieces we have hand pick from. But most of our store has pieces that are made by us. One third of our work is wedding sets. We have a wide selection of gold and silver. You will find a large selection of colored stones, gems, and diamonds to choose from. If it says Kit on it, you know its handmade.
We already have 3 months worth of new custom work to do. So if you want something made from us you better see us soon. Kit will work with your design or stones as well. Since age 13 Kit Kuhn has been creating finished products in metal with determination, quality and interest. At this age he was also selling his work in stores and apprenticing. Since then he has won many awards. He has studied in Denver, Colorado (where he was born) then in California, Oregon and abroad in Stockholm, Sweden.
If you would like to know more about Kit’s history here is a little show.
All of his work is hand fabricated, individually made and numbered. Kit Kuhn is quoted as saying “Though times will change, some things will remain the same: the quality of my work, the professional attitude I will exhibit and the affordable price range. If it says Kit on it you know it’s handmade.”
