The Siegelson's store was located at 56 West 47th Street.


Siegelson is a world-renowned gallery offering rare collectible jewels. Lee Siegelson, a third-generation gem and jewelry dealer, has a discerning eye for acquiring unique and important creations. Vogue Paris described him as “New York’s King of Jewelry.”

The Financial Times recognized that Siegelson is at the forefront of bridging the gap between art and jewelry design by making jewelry “relevant to fashion, style and today’s international design and art‑collecting community.”

Siegelson has bought and sold the greatest examples of jewelry for nearly a century. In the past decade, the company has loaned more than one hundred works to more than twenty-five exhibitions and has sold twenty jewels to museum collections.

The Dodge Clock An Art Deco Citrine, Ebonite, Diamond, and Enamel Mystery Clock by Maurice Coüet for Cartier, Paris, circa 1920


Lee Siegelson attended Cranbook, a famous preparatory school in Bloomfield Hills, Michigan, a formative experience that influenced the way he views the important art objects he sells. The school, like Cartier’s Model A Mystery Clock and the great pieces of the Art Deco movement, employed the notion of deviation from the assembly line mentality of Henry Ford. The Model A clock was produced entirely by hand by a team of master artisans, taking nearly a year to complete, in contrast to Henry Ford’s Model T, the 1908 automobile symbolizing the efficacy of mechanized mass production.

Siegelson has applied the ideals employed at Cranbrook in his work and his life: simplicity, uniqueness, and detail. His interest in fine objects is the opposite of the commercialism and mass production ever-present in the jewelry industry today. Siegelson focuses on pieces designed without compromise and with the utmost quality and beauty.
