As the middle of three brothers and strong developer, it was natural that in 2010, in connection with the change of generation, the traction of the company was transferred to me.

I have always been interested in challenging myself and my employees to do things better, to develop their work. That is why every day we strive to develop working methods and bring in technology that enables it.

It has been an advantage to hire several graduate goldsmiths and teach them the skill of working with diamond jewelry as well as see our company grow.
