51 years ago on July 13, 1970, Oscar Heyman passed away. His legacy remains in a name spoken with pride and respect by jewelry connoisseurs around the world, and synonymous with timeless gemstone heirlooms.
In 1912, Oscar, Nathan and Harry Heyman started
a jewelry manufacturing business at 47 Maiden Lane in Lower Manhattan, an evolution of an earlier partnership. Oscar was the natural salesman of the brothers and had been
previously employed by Cartier in their
New York workshop, a valuable connection.
