Based in Los Angeles since 1988, Hubert sources the most beautiful and exquisite gems from throughout the world, many times purchasing the rough material and cutting and polishing the gem in house. Once the stone is cut and polished, we will then contemplate the design possibilities: how to set it, how to combine it with other gems or diamonds, and what can be done that has not been done before.
“We have a really good in-house team of expert jewelers with exceptional craftsmanship that make the beautiful jewel which they will set the beautiful gemstones that we source or cut.”
Located right across Pershing Square, in the heart of downtown Los Angeles, Hubert is strategically located in the city’s Jewelry District, factor that helps the manufacturing and the global shipping logistics of our unique jewelry.
Many others are custom created, in collaboration with the customer, which will transform the idea into an expression of their vision, inspired by their personality. Either way, it is the company’s policy to require from each member of the team: Dedication, time, effort, care and craftsmanship for every piece of jewelry that is made.
Major brands in the jewelry industry will not source or cut their own gemstones, but they still markup their products to over 8-10 times the actual cost.
At Hubert, we avoid the middle man and third party sourcing, handcrafting our products with the same highest quality materials and craftsmanship, without the traditional markups, allowing us to offer the most unique and fine jewelry and gemstones, while being in control of the entire process of the jewelry making.
Hubert Gesser, the founder of the company, even while away at an exhibition or sourcing, follows closely most of the process of the jewelry making: From the casting process, it goes back to the designer, who will once again make sure that the cast piece is according to specifications, followed by Hubert’s approval. If it is all is well, the time has come to finally crown the design with the beautiful gem, or gems that it was designed for. The jewel will go through the hands of a master setter who will often adorn the piece with accent diamonds and other gemstones.
“Hubert is one of the very few jewelers who are involved with every aspect of jewelry making.”
Hubert Gesser designs some pieces with his wife Susan and other designers on his staff. Once the jewel is set and polished, it will once again be reviewed by the designer. If the name of the designer is not Hubert Gesser, the new creation will still have to go through the toughest of all the inspections… you got it, without Mr. Hubert’s approval, it’s back to the drawing board!
Most of Hubert’s jewelry is manufactured in the USA and the collection ranges from ladies’ jewelry (rings, earrings, bracelets, pendants and necklaces) to men’s rings, cufflinks and tuxedo buttons, all set with fine stones such as diamond, emerald, sapphire, ruby, tourmaline, spinel or morganite, to name only a few.
Hubert finds inspiration all around himself, and the freedom each designer has to be bold and creative, results in jewelry that never gets boring. When combined with the customer’s idea, there is no limit to what can be accomplished.
Bold, daring, unique… Hubert, just brilliant!
