The Heymans today
Oscar Heyman’s founding brothers trained in the rigorous workshops of Fabergé before leaving Eastern Europe for New York in 1906. At the company’s inception in 1912, there were three brothers, Nathan, Oscar and Harry, who brought with them not only their rarified skills, but an abiding passion for gemstones and an old world approach to gracious customer service.
The Heyman Family has run the company for three generations, with each generation imparting centuries old skills and technical know-how to the next. Today, members of the second and third generation work side by side with dedicated and skilled employees who continue to create jewelry of the highest standards for connoisseurs of the twenty-first century.
