Oscar Heyman & Brothers has been a family business since it was established in 1912, after the family moved from Latvia to the USA. Oscar & Nathan had been trained in the Faberge workshops and the other brothers had complementary skills, even down to making their own tools. A self-contained set-up right to the present day, designing, making and supplying jewelry to retail jewelers worldwide.
