Erwin Pearl made his name a brand for jewellery of lasting beauty. He has made and loved jewellery for over 50 years. Every single piece of Erwin Pearl jewellery is produced from a design he has has made, or held in his hands, tested for drape over his arm, held up to the sunlight, improved with his care.
Erwin Pearl was born in Vienna, Austria, considered by some at the time as the cultural centre of the world. He reveled in Vienna’s sophisticated life until chaos in Europe forced him to journey to America alone as a young teen. At 16 he apprenticed to a diamond cutter in New York while still in school and began learning the world of fine jewellery.
In the 1950’s he united with several craftsmen who fashioned his jewellery designs into reality. Working in the finest and most expensive materials, Erwin Pearl brought innovation and artistry to the industry, winning the Diamond International Award five years in a row.
The challenge of designing for a much wider audience brought Erwin Pearl to the fashion jewellery world. In the mid-seventies, he realized ‘not everyone could afford his work in diamonds and gold’.
“Fashion jewellery should be fun!! Easy to look at and comfortable to wear. This is a beautiful business. If a woman feels beautiful wearing my pieces, then I know I am doing something right.”
Erwin Pearl remains the only major jewellery designer with 30 eponymous jewellery stores throughout the USA, as well as his own factories, which allow the best possible control of quality and the best environment for artisans to innovate. The factories, located in Rhode Island, include the largest chain factory in the world and a jewelry factory where he creates most of his unique jewellery.
Erwin Pearl ‘s signature designs are worn by actresses on top rated shows such as THE GOOD WIFE, and movie box office hits such as, “UP IN THE AIR,” starring George Clooney.
