It seems that Caesar Azzam was destined to be a jeweler. As a young boy, Caesar spent countless hours in his father’s jewelry store helping customers and assisting his father in the business. After earning a Bachelor’s degree in international economics and a Graduate Gemologist degree from the Gemological Institute of America, Caesar began designing his own jewelry. When Caesar combined what his father taught him, his formal education in gemology, and his own distinctive and contemporary flair, the results were quite extraordinary. Caesar’s jewelry was nothing like what his father made; rather, his work spoke of an elegant simplicity that emphasized bold, clean lines and the natural beauty of colorful gemstones. 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. With each collection, Caesar has developed various distinctive styles to meet a variety of tastes.
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."
People note that working with Caesar is a unique and different experience…something like a breath of fresh air! Caesar takes the time to listen to what you are looking for, and will spend as much time as it takes to get things just the way you want them. So whether it is a custom designed piece, an engagement ring for your sweetheart, or an “I’m worth it” present to yourself, you can be sure that you will be delighted with your creation and will have a wonderful experience in the process.
