A lot has changed since our firm was founded by Rudolf Friedmann in 1950; long before the advent of designers, brands and all the complexities that accompanies jewelry today. Rudolf was an expert jeweler trained in the craft by his father in Europe. His singular concern was the quality of our craftsmanship and design. Brands were for mass-produced items like toothpaste not jewelry. We are still old-fashioned in that way. We still make many one of a kind pieces. We still run our own jewelry workshop. We still create the majority of our products in the USA.
