Based and founded in Los Angeles since 1988, Hubert is one of the very few jewelers who are involved with every aspect of jewelry making, from start to finish.
Located right across Pershing Square, in the heart of downtown Los Angeles, we are strategically located in the city’s Jewelry District, factor that helps the manufacturing of our unique jewelry.
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 possibilities: how to set it, how to combine it with other stones or diamonds, and what can be done that has not been done before.
– Each jewel we make is a unique design.
– Each gem we use is a piece of Nature’s Art.
– Hubert Jewelry are pieces of our heartfelt passion in contemplating each of our magnificent gemstones.
Hubert Gesser designs some pieces with his wife Susan and other designers on his staff. 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 policy to required from each member of the team: Dedication, time, effort, care and craftsmanship for every piece of jewelry that is made. As they they would make it for themselves.
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 meticulously process of carving the wax followed by the jewelry designer (most of the times himself), making sure it is made according to what have been envisioned on paper as a sketch. It should be unique and flow like a perfect symphony. “Customers come to us in search of spectacular colored gemstones, designs and bold settings” says Hubert, “We have to make sure that every piece of jewelry will meet their expectations. I like to personally do that, from start to finish.”
The next step is to cast the design in gold or platinum, following all the industry specifications. This process takes a great deal of care and use of fine quality materials. The smallest details must be hand-made by our goldsmiths, followed by a careful polishing process.
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.
Once the jewel is set and polished, it will once again be reviewed by the designer. If the name of such 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…
It is our commitment to reach the highest of standards!
Most of our 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.
We at Hubert find inspiration all around us, 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. Be bold, be daring, be unique…
Hubert, just brilliant!
