Pieter Andries Hye
Founder and C.E.O

For Pieter Andries, creating one-of-a kind jewelry for his many friends and fans has been a lifelong pursuit. At eighteen he earned the designation of Master Goldsmith from the prestigious Technicum Londonstraat in Antwerp, Belgium. Starting his business as a wholesale manufacturer, he envisioned a new model that would make his creations available directly to the public. Ensuring the consumer both uniqueness and value, this new enterprise would center around a state-of-the art manufacturing facility that would allow his team to design and craft each piece one by one. Using this vertical business model, Pieter and his wife Marilyn established Pieter Andries Creators of Fine Jewelry in 1992. From that point on his brand has continued to grow. Today the store and the brand he built have enabled him to become one of America’s top independent jewelers. In 2015 Pieter celebrated his fiftieth year in the jewelry business. As acting C.E.O, he continues to guide and mentor his executive team so that the Pieter Andries standard is upheld for the benefit of future generations.

From 1965, to today, and beyond, Pieter Andries and his team continue their pursuit of perfection. As we search for the most beautiful gemstones or design our next piece of jewelry, our inspiration is always you, the client.
