Rene started at Sami Fine Jewelry in 2014. Although he has only been with us a few years, he has had a lifetime of jewelry experience. When Rene and his family emigrated from Cuba to the U.S he was only nine years old, but he had to get a job to help out his family. At nine years old, Rene started working as a cleaner in a jewelry store. This is where his life long career and passion as a jeweler first began. Over the years he continued to develop his skills and advance his knowledge in jewelry-making and repairs. Rene says he does not have a hobby because his job is his passion and that is why he loves to work. On his own time, he can be found crafting custom jewelry designs for his brand, and visiting art museums for inspiration. Some of Rene’s creations can be found right here at Sami fine jewelry.
