Our Story

Family-owned and operated Ozel Jewelers originated in Turkey, Istanbul in the Kapalicarsi Grand Bazaar, as only one of nearly 2,700 businesses providing goods and services under one roof. At the age of 18, co-owner and master jeweler Abraham Tekin made the decision to follow his dream of traveling to America to open his own fine jewelry manufacturing company, after learning the business working with his family.

When it came to choosing an appropriate name for the company, the family decided to focus on what defining factors make them so unique: specialization and customization, for which the Turkish word is özel.
