Oscar Heyman has time on its side. Having recently celebrated its 100th anniversary, the family business has been through three generations of jewelers, and it’s clear that the firm’s jewelry-making techniques have been passed down since the beginning. Founding brothers Oscar, Harry, and Nathan Heyman came to the United States from Eastern Europe in 1906, bringing with them the techniques and skills that are seen in each and every piece today.
Members of the Heyman family have a lot to be proud of—not only did they just celebrate a huge milestone with their anniversary, but the history of their company is remarkable. For example, did you know that the infamous Taylor-Burton diamond necklace was designed for Cartier by Oscar Heyman himself? (See the company’s website for a really cool archive of jewelry designs here.) “At Oscar Heyman it’s all about the stones: the unique beauty, essence, color, and luster of a stone inspire our designs,” says Tom Heyman. “Oscar Heyman is timeless jewelry—we are not trendy and changing with the fashion times, but we give women the jewelry they deserve. We have been at this for three generations spanning over 100 years, not manufacturing jewelry, but designing and handcrafting it, meticulously shepherding each piece from stone selection to final sale.”
Needless to say, there aren’t your everyday jewels. These are custom-made, often one-of-a-kind pieces, the stuff future heirlooms are made of. So luxury jewelers in the market for something fabulous, here it is: eight of the latest pieces to be added to Marketplace from Oscar Heyman.
