Q&A with Harry Kotlar

Q: How does being a third generation jeweler impact your business?
A: We’re able to build on the traditions and history of a family business. Our business relies on relationships that were created, maintained, and expanded through three generations. It’s these long term relationships that provide the foundation for our future growth.

Q: What materials and cuts are inspiring you this year?
A: Platinum is still our metal of choice; its durability is amazing! We produced several two-tone pieces that combine platinum with rose or yellow gold to accent or highlight the diamond center stone. Kotlar Cushions are very hot this year. Cushions in general continue to be our most askedfor fancy cut.
