LISTENING
POST

AMONG ONE OF the
most diversified jewelry op-
erations around, started
from the back of a linen
truck over 20 years ago .. .
It was just "Get it from Al
Kaftan" then . . . and in the
basement of his house .. .
The recent opening of Al
Kay Jewelers on Southfield,
between 11 and 12 Mile, is
the dream of many years for
Al . . . and quite a transfor-
mation into 2,900 square
feet . . . of an excellent selec-
tion with just about every-
thing in the world of jewelry
. . . plus a mamouth 48-ton
vault encased in a. foot-
and-a-half of steel and
poured cement.
The staff is excited, too
. . . There's Al .. . his sister
Edee Moss, nephew Jerome
"Jerry" Moss, Bunny Ross,
Bruce Weiss, Chuck Kopel,
engraver Ken Kowaleski
and even Al's rriother,
Esther Kaftan, who comes
in daily doing her public re-
lationS bit, making custom-
ers feel at home and answer-
ing the telephone.
Bruce is foreman of the
shop at Al Kay Jewelers and
its diamond setter . . . Jerry
is a diamonologist and ap-
praiser.
The store is so unicpie
that it isn't unusual for
someone to bring a photo
or picture of a ring, pen-
dant, cufflinks, anything,
and have it duplicated .. .
It has its own engraving
shop, does its own cast-
ing and its own mount-
ings (waxing and rubber)
... Different pieces made
from wax are shown to
people before the real
thing is done ... lEven in-
vestments in diamonds,
bought or sold, are hand-
led by Jerry.
Al Kay Jewelers doesn't
stop here . . . it makes one of
a kind pieces (like the
corned beef sandwich Iry
Greenberg of Plaza Deli
wears on a chain around his
neck) . . . does all kinds of
remodeling and repairing of
old jewelry . . . and is among
the very few if any in the
city that engraves Lucite.
There's hardly anything
in jewelry that Al Kay
Jewelers doesn't have in
stock . . . and if it isn't on the
shelves, you can be sure Al
will get it for the customer
. . . Everything is dis-
counted.
Al Kay Jewelers' reputa-
tion has become so big that
it is even doing work for
other jewelers.
