Our History

Thanks to Oscar Heyman’s inimitable designs, many of the last century’s most brilliant luminaries—from dignitaries and royalty to international celebrities—have shined a little brighter. The company’s founding brothers trained in the rigorous workshops of Fabergé before leaving Eastern Europe for New York. In addition to their rarified skills, they brought with them an abiding passion for gemstones and an old world approach to gracious customer service.
