2006 – Stefan Mayer was invited by the Gemmological Institute of America to participate addicts San Diego’s symposium giving a speech on „ Gemstone Treatments: Friend or Foe?“. It is a great honour for us and symbolises the appreciation of our company through one of the leading institutes in the world of gems and jewellery. This symposium taking place every 7-10 year was opened by no other keynote speaker but the honorary Ms. Madeleine Albright the former minister of state of the United States of America.
Another milestone in the development of the company is the invitation of the German ambassador in Japan to present the Heinz Mayer OHG in his resident in Tokyo. The Japanese premium department store Takashimaya and Rolls-Royce Motor Cars invited the Japanese clientele to treasure the creations of our design-department.
2007 – A spectacular extension of the “Rolling Diamonds®”-collection with diamond fancy cuts is in the planning.
The company is owned by Stefan and Frank Mayer since 1990, after their father Heinz Mayer retired after 40 years in the business and let his sons take over.
