Born and raised in New York, Judy Schachter has a New Yorker’s undeniable eye for the particular tastes and style of the most fashionable and discerning women. Her first inclination, following her graduation from New York University, was to follow in her father’s footsteps, sharing the family passion for handcrafting the world’s most magnificent diamonds. As a young working woman, she traveled daily with her father, master diamond artisan Leo Schachter, to New York’s diamond district where she worked, sorting diamonds, and sourcing the best jewelers. She would set the diamonds in the most exquisite couture pieces for the most discriminating of private and salon clientele.
“From his heart I felt his passion for diamonds, through his eyes I’ve seen their beauty unfold. It is his gift to me, this love we share.”
