July 10, 2019

RAPAPORT... The trade is mourning the passing of veteran jewelry manufacturer Harold Spatz, who died on June 1 at the age of 92. 

Spatz, who ran New York-based Harold Spatz LTD, had been in the industry since he was 20, retiring only after he turned 90, a family member told Rapaport News. He started as a door-to-door salesman in New York’s Chinatown, before moving into manufacturing of high-end jewelry.

Major brands such as Tiffany & Co., Harry Winston, Cartier, and Van Cleef & Arpels contracted him to create high-end rings, earrings and pendants for their stores. He also had a private collection, Herz Fine Jewelry.

Spatz donated to numerous Jewish organizations throughout his career. He is survived by his daughter, son, grandchildren and great-grandchildren. Since his retirement, his granddaughter, Elizabeth, has taken over management of his company.
