About Us

M.K. Benatti Jewelers is passionate about two things:
Jewelry Design & Customer Satisfaction.

Matt and Karyn Khatib have shared a vision since the day they met in the jewelry industry almost 20 years ago. They wanted to combine their areas of expertise to create something that was truly unique to the jewelry industry: A jewelry design center where every step is done onsite by creative professionals who love what they do and strive to deliver only the highest quality custom made jewelry, creating a seamless and enjoyable experience for their clients. Twenty years later, this is exactly what you can find at M.K. Benatti Jewelers in Downtown Newburyport.

M.K. Benatti Jewelers employs a team of professionals dedicated to both their craft and exceptional customer service. Each member of the team has a unique role in the custom design process, where they take a clients’ ideas and bring to life a beautiful piece of fine jewelry. Whether it is creating an engagement ring, redesigning an existing ring or restoring a family heirloom, M.K. Benatti jewelers uses techniques handed down from generation to generation as well as the latest cutting-edge technology to make each clients’ vision come to life.

“Design is our passion” says owner Matt Khatib. “To see someone brought to tears by how beautiful their ring looks when we deliver the finished product to them makes all the hard work that goes into it worthwhile. Every one of our team members gets excited each and every day to see the look on our clients faces when they see their beautiful piece of jewelry for the first time. “

If custom design isn’t in your future, you can choose from hundreds of beautiful pieces of fine jewelry that M.K. Benatti Jewelers has in their show room. Each diamond and gemstone is hand selected for its quality and unique beauty. Our design team strives to create unique styles as well as timeless classics and everything in between. Each precious stone is hand set and examined by no less than 2 professionals to ensure that the quality and overall beauty of each piece of fine jewelry meets our strict standards.

M.K. Benatti Jewelers values the importance of giving back to their local community. “As a business and as individuals, we have the ability to make a difference in our local community,” says owner Karyn Khatib. Matt and Karyn, while involved in many fundraising activities, focus heavily on the the Anna Jacques Hospital and the Jeanne Geiger Crisis Center, both of which Matt serves on the Board of Directors, the Firehouse and the local schools. “The children of this community are our future,” says owner Matt Khatib. “Doing our part to make the city where we live and work a better place makes what we do every day have a lasting impact.”

“Building a community of people who value the finest craftsmanship and exquisite, heirloom quality fine jewelry is a lifelong dream for us, and to see it come to fruition in this amazing community that we call home is just an incredible honor,” says owner Matt Khatib. “We have clients from all over the world that come to us to design their jewelry for themselves or for a gift. Knowing it will be cherished for years to come is a feeling that is hard to describe,” says owner Karyn Khatib. “We get to be a part of their story forever, and there is something so very special about that.”

Matt Khatib and his wife, Karyn, who has been in the jewelry business for 20 years, opened M.K. Benatti Jewelers in Newburyport, Massachusetts in 2009 after being a jewelry repair service and design center in Cambridge, Massachusetts.
