    Henry Dunay: Henry Dunay began faceting gold in 1967, little realizing that it would become his signature and most important selling innovation. Today, Dunay is one of the leading jewelers in America, and an international star. He crafts his treasures in yellow gold, always designing with an eye for how a piece will look on a woman. His creations are well-detailed, sculptural forms ala miniature art objects. He shuns mass-market production preferring, instead, to create limited numbers of artistic, beauty-inspired items.
