Growing up in a house that looked like a museum wasn’t too easy on me and my brother or my parents for that matter. A few things may have broken along the way, sorry Mom and Dad! My father was an antique dealer so from an early age, I developed a love and understanding of antiques. This is why I am so passionate about estate jewelry. I love appraising and repairing estate jewelry and most of all, I love the stories behind estate jewelry. I specialize in estate jewelry for 1880 all the way to the present. My favorite era of jewelry is from the Art Nouveau era. However, I also appreciate the Edwardian era and even the Art Deco era jewelry. All estate jewelry in my opinion is special. Even a piece manufactured 10 years ago can have a history and a story and this is why I appreciate estate jewelry.
Fast forward from when I was a little boy and here I am today. Not only am I the co-owner of deBebians.com, but also the head jewelry designer. One of my specialties is incorporating different design aspects and making a one of a kind piece. With my love of estate jewelry, I often times find myself trying to incorporate these details into my designs. Some examples would be adding hand engraving, milgraining or filigree into my designs.
