Anyone comes into the store is like a friend walking into my home and I treat them as such,” said Sammy, who opened this extravagant showroom this January. “I have a passion for fine jewelry, fine watches, Estate pieces and fine art, we have exclusive high end estate pieces, and I just love the pieces and the work. You just can’t find these labor-intensive jewelry pieces anymore. They are pieces of art from master artists who did it all by hand.” Well known for decades in local antique circles, Samy owns a flagship store, Costa Mesa Jewelry, located on 19th Street.

It’s all very nice.” Samy says his estate pieces derive from his collection of 25 years. He attends jewelry and gem shows and maintains strong connections with many other dealers, estate liquidators, and estate auction houses.
