The Temperature Was 96° in the Sun
Sitting with The World’s Finest
Colored Gem Cutter
The first time I met Philip Youngman, it was a hot sunny day in Tuscon, Arizona. He was on the second floor of a downtown building, glass windows floor to ceiling. Behind Phil, through the glass windows, were the mountains that surround Tuscon and the Arizona sun was pouring in through the windows. Phil was back to the windows sitting. There were two seats on our side of his showcase.
Although it was close to 40 years ago, I remember it like it was yesterday. I remember walking down the line of showcases and stopping before Phil’s case. Color brilliance, color shape, color…electric color, color…otherworldly color. There before me were gems in a performance of color and brilliance I’d never experienced before.
I sat down; I didn’t ask for permission. I knew the man on the other side of this showcase was about to become a best friend for life and that I had a lot of discovering to do to understand who he was and how he had created all this impossible beauty.
I’m going to skip the hour-and-a-half we sat there looking, selecting, sorting, choosing gems. I would have to admit, I was giddy with excitement. Nothing, nothing, nothing that I had ever seen in gems in 15 years began to compare with what we saw that first day.
Over the years we have made incredible pieces with his extraordinary gems. If we use an outside specialist in the creation of a piece, we often receive a phone call with “I’ve never seen anything like this” comments. It takes a lot to stop a jeweler in their tracks.
Phil has said that if he has any talent, it is in identifying really good rough gemstones– after that, it is just a matter of taking the time the gem deserves to bring out its optimal color and brilliance. He says anyone could do that, but in our experience, almost no one does. But Philip Youngman does it every time.
Phil has become a great friend. He is mostly retired now, but creating a piece of jewelry from one of his gems is still a thrill.
The Essex design is the epitome of the jeweler’s art in balance, harmony, beauty, and strength. It is the most beautiful hand-crafted three-stone diamond ring ever made. So precise in its technical perfection, it can be studied under a microscope. We reserve Essex for only the finest gems and most brilliant diamonds. The result is dazzling. And yes, we stopped them in their tracks the first time they saw a Philip Youngman gem. We have to admit, it’s a little fun. If this ring becomes yours, you will know what we are talking about, every time someone notices the ring on your hand.
