Jorge Chabai

Founder, President, Master Jeweller

I was born in Buenos Aires Argentina with parents who immigrated from Ukraine. I came to the US in 1977.  I always wanted to work with my hands, so I decided to get a degree in Mechanical Drafting. After graduating from college, I started working as an apprentice in the jewelry field as an assembler and polisher.  Later, I was giving an opportunity to learn Pave setting from some of the best setters in the business at Tiffany Co. (which a friend of mine was working for them in NJ).  Next, I learned ring design by working with my best friend and mentor, Marcelo. As years went by and technology advancing, I studied Matrix CAD software program together with REVO machinery to cut waxes through GemVision’s programs.  Now after many years I can say I mastered every part of jewelry design and crafting from design, setting , casting , finishing and repair.
