If you take a closer peek at famous jewelry signatures, most of them have the heritage of the father passing his passion and skills onto his son, and the son to his son, and so forth. Jewelry-making, after all, isn’t something you learn from school, the skills, techniques, and trade secrets are learned from a mentor. Who better to mentor than the father, right? In fact, if you want to know if a jewelry brand is valuable, just look at its history, and if you see a father-son tandem, most likely you’re getting a signature with heritage. For example, JB Star
was founded by Rafael Fouzailoff
, who was one of the largest loose diamond manufacturers in Israel in the forties. Soon, the father would pass the business to his son, who founded JB
Star in 1979 as a brand that exudes dreams and romance.
JB Star is available at Schwarzschild's at Short Pump Town Center.
