The Oscar Heyman jewelry brand was founded in New York back in 1912 by the Heyman brothers who emigrated to America from Eastern Europe. The brothers successfully improved their skills, and since 1916 they have patented several techniques related to the manufacture of jewelry. Surprisingly, in fact, it was the Hayman brothers who created many of the iconic pieces of jewelry for major jewelry houses like Cartier, Van Cleef & Arpels, Tiffany & Co and others.

In 1936, the Oscar Heyman & Brothers jewelry house developed the famous “invisible” frame, which became very popular among jewelers. The Hayman brothers also made significant contributions to the art of jewelry, developing many modern jewelry tools and unique techniques for working with platinum and gold. It should be noted that to this day, the brand’s favorite material in the manufacture of jewelry is platinum. Its high density, resistance to chemicals and mechanical damage, allows you to create high quality products.
Cartier jewelry house, in 1969 creating the famous necklace for Elizabeth Taylor, entrusted the Hayman brothers – masters of the invisible setting, to set the legendary pear-shaped Taylor-Burton diamond weighing 69.42 carats in the frame.
Jewelry from the Oscar Heyman brand conquered the whole world with grace and laconicism – where baguette-cut gems in an invisible setting reveal the beauty of precious stones, help to feel their brightness and the ability to play with light. Diamonds connected to each other form a sparkling transparent tape, conveying its softness and plasticity. Teardrop-shaped pendants made of sapphires and rubies made in this technique, filled with light, glow with precious luster.
The most memorable earrings are the diamond earrings from the 2014 Oscar Heyman catalog.
At the top of the jewel, seven oval diamonds set at an angle sparkle, while the signature drop-shaped pendant of invisible-set diamonds explodes in dazzling sparks. Unusually beautiful earrings, they just dazzle.
In addition to the excellent technique of execution, jewelry from the Oscar Heyman brand is full of bright colors. Designers masterfully combine bright pink and star sapphires, rubies, Paraiba tourmalines, fire opals, chrysoberyl in their jewelry. An unusually bright combination in earrings made of black Australian opal and emeralds (2017), where the green flashes of noble opal are enhanced by an emerald halo, and diamonds enhance the brilliance of the stones.
In each piece of jewelry, one can feel love for one’s work and for the exceptional beauty of precious stones, the desire to emphasize their individuality and charm.
