Fine jewelry is about so much more than wearing something pretty and expensive. The finest of fine jewelry is about tradition, design, and art. Jewelers who have been honing their craft for generations. Jewelry that you’ll want to pass on to your children and your children’s children. That’s what Oscar Heyman is all about.
The American company has been making quality platinum and gold pieces for more than a hundred years. Each design reflects its history, passion, and expertise. When it comes to fine jewelry, there’s no one like Oscar Heyman.
A History of Excellence
The story of Oscar Heyman began when the Heyman brothers immigrated to New York from Eastern Europe in the early 1900s. They soon after began working with the likes of Cartier before setting up their own company, Oscar Heyman & Brothers, specializing in platinum jewelry, and became a prime example of the American dream. Known as the Jeweler’s Jeweler, over the century, they have also worked with famed companies like Tiffany and Co. and Van Cleef & Arpels.
The storied American designer has also long been known for its patriotism. They offered up their factory for wartime use after the attacks on Pearl Harbor. They also designed an iconic American flag pin that was sold at Tiffany for decades—a version of it is still offered by Oscar Heyman today. And specially-designed Oscar Heyman pins even went to the moon with the astronauts of Apollo 16.
The company has now transitioned from a manufacturer to a standalone brand. It renamed itself simply Oscar Heyman to celebrate its 100-year anniversary in 2012. Its jewels remain popular with celebrities and on the red carpet. Some of them are still crafted with the same tools that the Heyman brothers used at the very beginning.
Today’s Oscar Heyman collections are the kind of heirlooms that are meant to last through the generations. Your children won’t want to sell your pieces—they’ll be fighting to see who gets to keep them.
Earrings are one of the most timeless fine jewelry pieces you can invest in. Oscar Heyman’s Diamond Cascade Earrings are a prime example of jewelry that will look good with any dress at any age or time period. For something with a bit more color, check out the Diamond Top Emerald Drop Earrings. If you want something a touch subtler, the Fancy Intense Yellow Diamond Earrings may be perfect for you.
Fashion rings are another item that has always been passed down from generation to generation (though your grandmother may have called it a cocktail ring). Oscar Heyman has a truly stunning selection of them. The Aquamarine Sapphire Diamond Ring is both classic and bold. The Black Opal & Diamond Ring is fashion-forward but will still stand the test of time. And the Asscher Cut Diamond Ring is a vintage-style beauty.
If bracelets are the type of piece you’d rather invest it, Oscar Heyman makes beautiful ones. The Yellow and White Diamond Block Bracelet represents a departure from tradition for them—they used to design exclusively in platinum, but now use some 18k gold. The Emerald and Diamond Paisley Bracelet is a true showpiece, and the Pink Sapphire and Yellow Diamond Flower Bracelet is a work of art.
