Jim Saylor is retiring and closing his jewelry business in Kapaʻa after 47 years.

After 47 years of serving the island community of Kauaʻi, Jim Saylor is retiring and closing the doors of his jewelry business for good.

To celebrate his shining legacy and the remarkable relationships he’s made over the years, he will be holding a huge Going Out of Business Sale, starting on March 7 at his store at 7-1318 Kūhiō Highway in Kapaʻa.

During this event, you can save up to 70 percent off the store’s entire selection of fine contemporary jewelry, pearls, diamonds, gold, gemstone jewelry and vintage treasures.


The story of Jim Saylor Jewelers began in 1976. He had $150 in his pocket and a tackle box of jewelry tools when he began working in the back closet of a shop. With no formal training he started doing trade work, including ring sizing and repairs. He eventually expanded the business into custom and restoration work.

For more than four decades, Saylor’s business flourished in the same location. He built an incredibly strong customer base who adored his beautifully handcrafted treasures, pieces that celebrated special moments and milestones.

Through listening and authentically caring for his customers, Saylor built long-lasting relationships and friendships. Generations of families came to Saylor to create breathtaking pieces that would commemorate their most precious moments and stand the test of time. Even now, some of his pieces still shine brightly after 40 years.


Saylor says the key to his success is his passion: “I love what I do. I dive in head-first on any project.”

He added: “I’m so incredibly honored to be part of this small island community and be supported personally and professionally by everyone here. The friendships and relationships I’ve developed through my business have been wonderful and I feel really blessed.”
