How did you get your start in the jewelry industry? When I was in high school, I took a jewelry making class from a very talented designer and ended up getting a job at the polishing wheel. My love of jewelry had started. After graduating college, I obtained my Gemologist degree. I came back to New Orleans and worked for an antique dealer on Royal Street before launching my own company.
What’s special about Hope Goldman Meyer Fine Jewelry? I provide a personal service for my clients, seeking out the finest jewelry at the best prices. I work with my clients in the store or by appointment. I work with their schedules at locations that are convenient.
What kind of jewelry do you provide? I handle diamond engagement rings, antique, estate and modern fine jewelry. I also design custom pieces and ensure the highest level of craftsmanship in their creation.
What pieces in the current collection are your favorites? I only buy what I love, but I would like to mention my sapphire, diamond and platinum period Art Deco ring and my deep golden color South Sea pearls.
What price points do you handle? Pieces range from a couple of thousand dollars to infinity!
What are you excited about for 2015? I am very excited to have opened up my fine jewelry salon in Empire Antiques! My inventory will be constantly changing, because I can never get the same piece twice!
