About PyO

Plata y Oro Jewelers is a locally owned jewelry store in downtown Kalamazoo that specializes in custom designs and repair. You need a ring as unique as your partner and we can help you with that! First, our bench jewelers invite you to sit with them and create a design that speaks to you and your partner. Then, the next time we meet we will have drawings or a wax sample of your piece, gemstones, and maybe even metal semi-mounts to play with!
