Beginning in a workshop when just 14 years old, Henry Dunay quickly caught the jewelry bug. Apprenticing for 7 years, Dunay honed his skills working with masters in all fields of jewelry making and eventually set out to open his own studio at the age of 21.
He soon developed techniques for hand-engraved texturing his gold pieces, a development that formed the cornerstone of the brand Henry Dunay that over the next few decades became renowned for its unique designs and unparalleled craftsmanship in 18K gold and platinum jewelry.
The quintessential Henry Dunay piece is at once bold, yet elegant. Its wearer exudes a confident persona and a refined sense of style. Worn by heads of state, politicians, and luminaries from around the world, Henry Dunay’s jewelry is immediately recognizable, but unlike too many brands today, it never backed away from its dedication to produce the finest quality pieces.
Only the most skilled craftsmen have ever been allowed to create Henry Dunay pieces, and only the finest gemstones and pearls have been employed.
A similar principle applies to the design of any Henry Dunay piece. Countless iterations are created for every piece, and only once the perfect proportions, curves, and accents are conceived does work begin on crafting a piece.
Time consuming though this process may be, it has led to the creation of truly exceptional jewelry, allowing the brand to be recognized for countless awards and honors from around the world. An American icon, Henry Dunay represents the very best in style and substance. This is a tradition that continues even today.
