After an apprenticeship with their uncle, a supplier of objects to Faberge, Oscar and Nathan Heyman emigrated from Russia to New York in 1906, followed by their brother, Harry, a year later. By 1912, the three brothers opened their own business at 49 Maiden Lane, supplying the latest platinum jewellery to prestigious retailers. Within a short space of time, they were joined by their younger brothers, George, Louis and William. Oscar Heyman & Brothers is a self-contained jewellery manufacturer. They have moved four times since their inception, relocating in 1969 to their current address on Madison Avenue. The firm maintains regional sales office in Dallas, Chicago, San Francisco, Atlanta and Tokyo. The Heyman family continues to manage the business.
