    Prince Dimitri: Prince Dimitrije "Dimitri" Karadordevic, also known as Dimitri Karageorgevich or Dimitri Karadordevic, is a designer of royal lineage who had the privilege of encountering outstanding jewelry collections from his Serbian, Greek, Yugoslavian, Belgian, and Italian ancestors. He was born in Versailles and moved to New York City after graduating with a business law degree from the University of Paris. After pursuing a career on Wall Street, he set his sights on the jewelry industry and eventually became the Vice President of Sotheby’s. After years of appraising and studying gemology, he became a designer in 1999. He and his business partner Todd Morley founded the Prince Dimitri Company in 2007. His jewelry is known for being vibrant, playful, and fresh, and he has stated that the Golden Ratio influences his designs.
