Since 1990, the Leslie Berman fine jewelry boutique has been the preferred choice for savvy individuals around the world seeking exquisite customized jewels, competitive prices and the ultimate in personalized service. Working with only the finest materials and the most talented master technicians, Leslie is celebrated for her unique ability to create timeless, exceptional designs that perfectly capture the style and spirit of the people who will wear them. “Whether a client is treating themselves to something from our exclusive collection, looking to restyle an heirloom piece or wanting to create the engagement ring of their dreams,” says Leslie, “my goal is to take their breath away and make sure they are 110% happy.” And for generations of clients, that’s exactly what she’s done.
Leslie Berman's passion for fine jewelry began early, working at her family’s New York jewelry shop. It was there that she was first introduced to the centuries-old principles of design and manufacturing techniques; skills she would later hone studying at the Fashion Institute of Technology under leading designers from some of the world’s most prestigious jewelers, including Tiffany and Bulgari. Upon graduating, she became a certified gemologist at the Gemological Institute of America before going on to open her own eponymous business in 1990. Today, her work is widely collected and recognized across the globe for its quality, craftsmanship and creativity. Long known for her commitment to integrity and the environment, Leslie uses only stones, metals and materials that are ethically sourced.

A graduate of the University of Kansas, Darren is involved in daily business operations, marketing and client appointments – which affords him the perfect opportunity to share his proven business acumen, incomparable sense of style and friendly, Midwestern personality. “Buying fine jewelry can be intimidating,” says Darren, “that’s why I believe our biggest strength is that we offer some of the most incredibly beautiful pieces you’ll find anywhere…yet in a very welcoming, comfortable and stress-free environment.”
