In the 80’s Rodolfo Santayana, known simply as Santayana, dreamed of opening a jewelry store where he could sell beautiful fine jewelry with unique design and timeless style. With the support of his wife Marisa and their five children, he opened Santayana Jewelers in Miami on 122 ave and southwest 8th street. The Jewelry store was located near the Kendall area. After several years of success and having cultivated a stellar reputation in the community, Santayana’s business grew much faster than he ever anticipated.
Santayana was especially known for his innovative designs, custom jewelry, engagement rings, and jewelry repair. Over time, his designs became so singular people stopped each other on the street to compare their Santayana pieces.

Can't say enough about Santayana. This family-owned jewelry store provides the personal service you can't find at chain jewelry stores. And Rudy's jewelry designs are like no others. I love pieces that are unique. If they don't have it, they can create it. Don't even consider going anywhere else. They truly are a rare find. Thanks, guys, for all of my treasures.
Hands down the best jewelers in Miami! They have everything from traditional designs to beautifully designed custom pieces made by hand. I couldnt have asked for a better experience or a better price. They go above and beyond to ensure customer satisfaction.
Santayana has one of a kind jewelry and with a comfortable atmosphere. No pressure when shopping and I'm always surprised at some of their new designs. Parking is easy and location is very convenient. Recommended to all my friends.
Words cannot even describe how amazing this place is, I now have the most unique and beautiful engagement ring thank to the he hard work and exquisite craftmanship of the staff there! They make one of a kind jewelry that stands out beautifully! If you want something that's one of a kind then go there! Excellent service and amazing staff!
The folks at Santayana are wonderful to do business with them. They have a unique selection of jewelry like I have never seen before. I was greeted with so much kindness and patience even though they were technically closed. They took the time to share all the wonderful one of a kind creations they have been designing and offered several payment options which are pretty awesome. I was very happy to have walked out with my Valentine's present for my boyfriend. Had they not been so kind and let me in, I would not have a Valentines present for Tuesday because I live far away and cannot make it during weekdays. I was set on this gift that I can only get there since it is a unique design of theirs that my boyfriend really wanted. Definitely will return and shop there again. Thank you and your lovely wife for an amazing experience. I can't wait to buy some of the beauties I saw! I highly recommend Santayana Jewelry store.
We are so happy with the quality of the jewelry and level of service provided by Rudy and his mother-in-law Nury. My partner picked out an engagement ring but knew I most likely wanted to design a ring, Rudy made it easy for us to exchange for a custom ring. The design process was so much fun! Rudy is super creative and passionate about design, and you can see his work while he draws it up on the computer in real time. We showed him a couple of pictures for inspiration, adding our feedback. He was super patient and really wanted to make us something we would love. The coolest part is getting to come back a couple of days later to see (and keep) the 3-D printed mold to check out the setting and fit. They are a local family owned and operated store using some very cool tech. My ring is stunning. Can’t recommend this store enough and to return for our bands. Thanks again.
Rudy and his team at Santayana are excellent people. I explicitly trust them with all my jewelry needs and they have never let me down. He has a wonderful selection of items for sale and if you have something specific in mind he will create it for you. I have always been pleased when my husband presents me with a little box from Santayana!
Rudy is an awesome jewelry designer! Super creative, patient, and gifted. His talent is beyond measure. He takes an idea, a stone or a life event and transforms it into an original piece of art. His staff is professional and knowledgeable. Thank you!
Amazing!!! Great Craftsmanship and wonderful staff. The only Jeweler in Miami that I ever go to, same goes for my Family. We love the level of expertise and honesty we receive from Rudy and his family. They are helpful and wonderful to work with. Thank you Rudy and staff for being an amazing part of my family's life.
Just want to thank Rudy and his amazing team at Santayana Jewelers. Thank you for the beautiful ring that was made for me. It fits perfectly and definitely strikes up conversations with friends and family. I will be referring anyone who is interested in quality, handmade jewelry.
