100-Year-Old Jeweler Oscar Heyman Crafts a 100 Carat Multicolor Bracelet



Inspired by the geometric shapes of Hong Kong’s crowded skyline, this Oscar Heyman bracelet steeps trillion-cut Ceylon sapphires and diamonds in a hand-forged platinum skeleton, creating a dazzling study in tiny, meticulously cut triangles. “The sapphires make this a really special piece—they’re very, very bright,” says Tom Heyman, a third-generation co-owner of the company that Nathan, Oscar, and Harry Heyman founded in 1912. The bracelet recently sold to a jeweler on the West Coast, who purchased it as a present for his mother. Its kaleidoscopic gems were carefully chosen and arranged, notes Heyman. “These sapphires are all bright and light, without being pale,” he says. “We could have made anything with them and it would have looked amazing.”
