|Maybe it's true that Caesar Azzam, founder and owner of Caesar's Designs, was destined to be a jeweler. The jewelry trade in his family since the late 1800s, Caesar first learned the art of jewelry making from his father, and enhanced his knowledge by attending GIA, becoming a Graduate Gemologist in 1990.
After working for a fine jewelry manufacturer in the Los Angeles jewelry district, Caesar held several positions in jewelry retail in California. Creating jewelry was always his passion, but it wasn't until 1998 that he decided to develop his own collection, and Caesar's Designs was born in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.
His works are breathtakingly unique and fresh. He describes his design philosophy as "the marriage of metal and gem to create contemporary jewelry with clean lines that bring out the beauty of natural gems to adorn the body." Whether he is working with silver, gold, or platinum, Caesar shapes the metal for comfort so it feels, in the words of many a customer, "like butter."
