Never Lose Your Sparkle
Where It All Began
While studying at Nova University, South Florida in the 1980’s, Debra was exposed to the the world of fine jewelry when she was hired a part-time position at Mayor’s Jeweler’s South Florida.
Following her instinct, she redirected her path and began an enduring career in opening luxury jewelry brand companies throughout North America and spent time in Europe
Some of the most pivotal moments in her career include her memories at Fred Leighton on Madison Avenue NYC, NY. During this time, she balanced her studies at the Gemological Institute of America, where she graduated with a G.I.A. Diploma with a mentorship directly under Mr. Fred Leighton, and catered to clients that include both dignitaries and celebrities.
Debra finds great inspiration in the origin of precious stones and the historical evolution of jewelry. She is particularly experienced in appraising antique, estate and vintage jewelry.
In her current collection, Debra co-designs and manufactures with her partner in Valenza, Italy. Her collection includes 18 kt gold pieces that blend a retro aesthetic with diamonds and precious gemstones that exude that rock-on look. Debra currently resides in Palm Beach, Florida with her husband, Danny Miller, and her beloved dog, Atlas.
