Collection: Peter Lindeman

Born in Berlin, Lindeman grew up in Montevideo, Uruguay, apprenticing with a fine European firm. In 1947, at the age of 17, he headed to New York, where he worked for several high-end jewelers. In 1955, he started designing his own jewelry and created his signature hallmark – a teardrop with an “L” placed on the back of every piece. His designs ended up in the collections of Elvis Presley and tennis champion Chris Evert, as well as the permanent collection of the Boston Museum of Fine Art.
