Things My Mother Taught Me

I often think of my grandmother Clara, and wonder what she would think about Fortunoff if she could see it today. The world, and our business, have changed so much since that first store on Livonia Avenue in Brooklyn. Clara worked tirelessly to build the business, but never lost sight of the importance of building her family, as well. Following Clara, my mother Helene enjoyed a great career, shattering glass ceilings, accumulating accolades and awards, and making a huge impact in the world of jewelry. She, too, would tell you that she kept an equally firm eye on her family. It is inspiring — and a little daunting — to follow in the steps of these great women who built my family business.

Other lessons they taught me were: find great designs that our customers will love and always offer the customer a fair price.

My team and I strive to offer you our legendary large selections that are high quality and affordable. The pieces I select are ones you can be proud to give to your mother, so she will cherish and wear any of them with joy. I’ve chosen some beautiful new lockets and jewelry with messages to add to our collections.

Among the gold and silver lockets we offer, here’s a new oxidized sterling silver one in the shape of a heart.

A great gift that fits everyone, a Gemstone necklace adds color to any outfit. Or show your mom she’s a star with this diamond star necklace.
