The firm is recognized as a pioneer in manufacturing techniques using platinum. Their spectacular floral collection of pansies, orchids and gardenia brooches were awarded highest honors at the New York World Fair in 1939. Oscar Heyman was commissioned by Cartier to create the world famous "Taylor-Burton" diamond necklace for the power couple in 1969.
Today Oscar Heyman is still family operated and continues to manufacture its own tools, alloy its own platinum and gold as well as oversee every aspect of their iconic designs and production.
"Jewelry should never be a candidate for redesign but should transcend time like a fine painting, never losing its appeal" -Oscar Heyman
