The Daniel Diamonds Story — A Family Jewelry Brand

The Daniel Diamonds Story

Every family jewelry store has a story. Our story tells of one family's journey and the changing nature of the jeweler's profession.

The business began in Houston, Texas, where owners Danny & Karen Alkayam married. Their family grew to include a daughter, Kellie, and a few years later the business found a new home in Evergreen, Colorado.

A Modern Jewelry Business Springs From Deep Family Roots

Generations of the Alkayam family cut and sold wholesale diamonds. When Danny moved to Houston he entered the family business as an apprentice and set about learning everything he could. He and Karen worked selling wholesale jewels and created a line of handcrafted jewelry they sold to other stores.


Upon their move to Evergreen, they decided to open a traditional retail jewelry store to showcase Karen's talent for custom design alongside a carefully curated selection of ready-to-wear jewelry.

What Sets Us Apart

Our long-standing family relationships with gemstone vendors mean we can find any gemstone you're interested in, no matter how rare. We work closely with the cutters and master craftspeople which means we can create just about any custom jewelry design you can dream up. 

"I love working with Karen & Kellie! Daniel Diamonds carry the most unique jewelry and will design anything that you would like. Great place to get special pieces." ~ Vicki S.

Daniel Diamonds proudly offers a variety of diamond and gemstone options. From traditionally mined to lab-created, allow us to help you find the perfect piece of jewelry that speaks to your style and values.

What We Have to Offer

Daniel Diamonds is a full-service jewelry store. We carry fashion jewelry for all occasions and a full range of traditional fine jewelry like diamond earrings, engagement and wedding rings, bracelets, and cocktail rings. 


There's fashion jewelry too. Our experts are happy to help you pick out the perfect gift for your bridesmaids, graduation, birthdays, anniversaries, and christenings. 

"I love Karen and Kellie! There isn't anything they wouldn't do to make sure their customers are happy! I come out from California to shop here because I consider this my jewelry store!" ~Patty O.

Our passion lies in designing custom jewelry. Owner Karen Alkayam and her daughter Kellie are our expert creative team. Our custom jewelry designs can symbolize new beginnings or create a link to your past. We bring new life out of dated and broken pieces languishing unworn in your jewelry box. 

The Kind of Jewelry We Make

We're in love with the custom jewelry design process. It's so fun to take a loose gemstone, dream up a beautiful piece, and then see it come to fruition because it often totally transforms the jewel. There's nothing better than seeing the customer's face light up the first time they set eyes on their new jewelry.

"I absolutely loved my experience at Daniel Diamonds. The custom design options are limitless & the customer service is impeccable." ~ Laci S.

It takes time and experience to design high-quality pieces that stand the test of time. As 3rd generation jewelers, we share our family's design and construction best practices through the generations. When you work with Daniel Diamonds, you can be sure the custom jewelry we design will be true to your original vision and hold up to the rigors of daily wear. 

A New Era for a Family Jewelry Business

This year saw a significant shift in our business. Shopping habits shifted online during the pandemic. We recognized this opportunity to offer our custom design services to a larger audience. In the spring of 2022, Daniel Diamonds transitioned to an online brand.

Our physical store in Evergreen, Colorado, is now open only by appointment. We're available Thursdays from 11-4, Friday 11-5, and Saturday 11-3.

How to Schedule a Time to Visit

To schedule an appointment for a repair, custom design, or shop for a specific item you have in mind: book an appointment from our website or window shop in our online store, which is open 24/7. Most of our in-store inventory is there, and we're constantly adding new items.

While how we sell jewelry has evolved with the times, how we conduct business remains the same. When shopping for jewelry at Daniel Diamonds, you're treated like family.
