Oscar Heyman & Bros.
The famous American firm of Oscar Heyman & Bros.( Founded 1912) can trace its origins back to the Fabrege workshop in Russia, where the brothers gained invaluable experience working with platinum and creating tools for the jewelry industry. In 1912 the remaining three Heyman brothers and three sisters left Latvia to join the family in New York, and the firm of Oscar Heyman & Bros. was established on Maiden Lane in Lower New York City. The family took pride in their work and created a self-contained system of manufacture where quality was closely monitored every step of the process. The firm still makes its own tools, alloys its own platinum and gold, and designs and creates each piece to meet demanding specifications.
Today, the firm continues to be run by the third generation of Heyman’s who continue to create their own tools, over see every aspect of design and production, and various patents for manufacturing techniques.
