Quality means doing it right when no one is looking.
— Henry Ford
Since 1912, Oscar Heyman jewelry has been ingeniously designed and meticulously hand-crafted by American artisans using European techniques passed down through three generations of our family’s business. The founding Heyman brothers trained in the rigorous workshops of Fabergé before coming to New York, bringing with them superlative knowledge, rarified skills, and an abiding passion for gemstones.

These values remain a part of our heritage — there is no compromise when it comes to quality. We balance a rich history with a modern point of view and our inimitable designs are synonymous with beauty, style and indisputable quality of the gemstones we choose.
Oscar Heyman Workshop Today
Beyond the classic diamonds, rubies, emeralds and sapphires, we work with phenomenal gemstones with equally glamorous appeal, including alexandrite, chrysoberyl cat’s-eye, opals, aquamarines, star rubies and star sapphires all hand-selected for quality and color. All of our stones are carefully selected by hand, and every piece of jewelry is signed and numbered, assuring the quality and pride of craftsmanship that Oscar Heyman has delivered for 100 years.
The result is an enduring legacy of heirloom-quality jewelry that truly transcends time.
