History

The Kern tradition dates back to 1944, when our doors first opened to serve discerning Bay Area customers looking for high quality jewelry and timepieces.

 

Seven decades later, Kerns remains a family-owned and operated business in downtown Burlingame. While our selection and expertise has increased over the years, we remain small enough to know each individual client who walks through the door.
