Our Story

 

1976

M&L Jewelry Manufacturing, Inc. was established in 1976 by Michael and Leon Landver. They began supplying small retail shops in the United States with finished pieces of diamond and colored gemstones in gold and platinum. With its small but efficient 3-person shop grew into a prime manufacturing designer for the increasing number of retailers in the United States.


We were among the first innovators in the U.S. to cast in-place wax-set jewelry and one of the first to create the baby baguette diamond jewelry products.


1986

In 1986 M&L established its overseas office in Hong Kong and built a factory and workshops in PinYu to support the need for the growing North American market.


Keeping in line with it’s philosophy and approach to cost-effective design and manufacturing, M&L continues to create innovative and Old World designs that set it apart from much of the competition. Creating between 300 and 450 new designs each year is a welcomed and enjoyable challenge to M&L’s creative team. It is a challenge that promises retailers fresh inventory for their customers’ ever-growing hunger for fashion.


Constant product development, interaction with customers, and local and international market research, put M&L in front of the manufacturing market and distinguish them from many of their peers. All product models and CAD are done the Los Angeles facility and final production is allocated between the U.S. and China


2000 and Beyond

M&L has partnered with some of the most famous jewelry designers in the U.S., creating private label, one-of-a-kind pieces for celebrities and dignitaries worldwide.


In 2013 Michael Landver, Arthur Birnbaum and Barbara Lunger, formed a subsidiary company, American Brand Management, to augment its branding capabilities. They designed new products for a strategic alliance and exclusive partnership with Blue Star Diamond, Antwerp, a sightholder and cutter for DeBeers FOREVERMARK brand.
