KOTLAR CRAFTSMANSHIP

Old-world artistry meets modern sophistication

the measure of timeless beauty

In the world of fine jewelry, pieces are ultimately judged by that most elusive of measures: history. But one cannot manufacture history & heritage on a whim. It needs to rise from the experience, passion & lineage of the craftsmen who shaped the piece, as well as the time-honored methods they employ. With every step of the crafting process, the maker must imbue each piece with a sense of historic prestige.

Carving

crafted by the masters

Harry Kotlar commissioned a small team of master artisans who have dedicated their lives to a specific element of jewelry-making handed down to them by previous generations. Each piece is touched by only four artisans: a forger, a carver/setter, a polisher, and a quality control expert.

A HANDMADE
MASTERPIECE

By creating the piece by hand, the jewelry becomes stronger, and has greater density than mass-produced counterparts. The process elevates the beauty and perfection of each piece, bestowing the wearer a piece of old-world history & artistry that will truly last a lifetime.
