    Peter Lindeman: Award-winning designer Peter Lindeman's workshop has supplied pieces to retailers such as Tiffany & Co., Shreve, Crump & Lowe, as well as Bailey Banks & Biddle. Born in Berlin, Peter Lindeman grew up in Montevideo, Uruguay, apprenticing with a fine European firm. In 1947, at the age of 17, he immigrated to New York where he worked for several high-end jewelers. In 1955, he started designing his own jewelry and created his signature hallmark – a teardrop with an “L” – placed on the back of every piece. He was the first to travel with his collections on hand, thus initiating the “trunk show”. His popular designs are inspired by nature and often depict flowers and animals, and have also included rough-cut diamonds in combination with polished diamonds and gemstones. His designs have ended up in the collections of Elvis Presley and Chris Evert, as well as the permanent collection of the Boston Museum of Fine Art. The Zodiac Calendar pendant given to Elvis Presley points to Capricorn, the sign representing his January 8th birthday, which is shared with Lindeman.
