You know Oscar Heyman. The family-run jeweler celebrated its 100th anniversary in 2012 (making it 103 now), continuing its legacy of handcrafted in the U.S., European-technique design. It was one of the very first luxury jewelry brands I had the pleasure of working with when I first started here at JCK, and after about four years, it still manages to wow me with each and every new (or new-to-me) piece. A lot of work and thought goes into creating these pieces, and what I love about Oscar Heyman is its ability to make a woman feel like the jewelry was specially made for her, even if it wasn’t a custom job (though it almost certainly is a one-of-a-kind piece, and the brand is more than happy to answer the call for custom designs to fit the wearer’s precise specifications). “Creating truly exquisite jewelry for truly exquisite women,” is a mantra of the brand. It’s the heirloom she wished had been passed down; now, the line starts with her.
It’s Monday, so I’m making it your turn to be wowed—five times over (I’m assuming you need it, and if you’re one of those people who actually enjoys Mondays, well, it just got even better). Say it with me now…
