    H. Stern: The Brazilian jewelry company, H. Stern, was founded by a young German émigré named Hans Stern in 1945. He got his start buying and selling colored gemstones in Rio de Janeiro. His sharp eye for color was equaled by his interest in creative design. The company’s golden rule was that each piece had to be beautiful. Once small, H. Stern has grown to an international manufacturer and retailer with boutiques throughout the world. Under the leadership of Hans Stern’s son, Ronaldo, the company continues to design exquisite jewels always set with the finest quality of gemstones.
