J. Ortman Inc. proudly carries on the legacy of a 120 year, family-owned business renowned for its knowledge and expertise in Diamonds, Color Stones and Jewelry. Established in 1899, J.Ortman Inc. provides its clientele with rare and unique jewelry and gems, while always ensuring impeccable quality and service. We work with the same jewelry craftsmen as Tiffany, Cartier, and Van Cleef & Arpels, without charging the high retail prices.
J.Ortman Inc is a wholesale fine diamond and estate jewelry firm founded in 1899 by Julius Ortman and later run by his son, Jack Ortman (1912-1990). Today, it is operated under the leadership of Heidi Ortman Sheff (Jack’s granddaughter), whose commitment, expertise, and passion has made this diamond and precious stone company a distinguished name in fine jewelry.
For generations, J. Ortman Inc. has been a premier source and expert for many affluent families and numerous celebrities who value the privacy and confidentiality as well as the one-on-one service.
A fourth generation member of the Ortman family, Heidi Ortman Sheff was fortunate to work with her grandfather for 6 years (1984-90) before he passed away. Today she is still active in the diamond, precious stone and fine jewelry industry. Having connections throughout the US, J.Ortman Inc is a premier source for buying and selling jewelry and precious gems.
Since the company has served the wholesale fine jewelry industry for 120 years, they have acquired outstanding knowledge and credibility during their long- term history. Along with being extremely service oriented, J.Ortman Inc. has one of the largest databases and sources worldwide to provide you with your most rare and unusual requests.
Heidi will provide her expertise and 40 years of knowledge to provide quality gem stones for a young entrepreneur, or an established billionaire.
Today, lab grown Diamonds have recently come down in price and can be a great alternative for a young couples engagement ring or for an upgrade on a pair of Diamond stud earrings.
