Words From The Founder
Let me introduce myself. My name is Raphael Weil, founder of World Wide Weil. You might also know me as ''The Diamonds Guy'' on Instagram (@TheDiamondsGuy).
When I was young, I discovered the world of Fine Watches by my Great Grandfather, Wolf Magnichewer, deported to Auschwitz in 1942, who was a Watchmaker and Jeweler. He survived thanks to his Watchmaking skills, fixing watches at Blechhammer, a sub-camp of Auschwitz. I quickly fell in love with something different and similar at the same time, the universe of Fine Jewels and Gemstones. I was fascinated!
I was born and raised in France where I studied International Trade, Management, Economy and Business Development.
After getting my diplomas, I came to New York City to realize my dream and study Gemology at the Gemological Institute of America located in the Big Apple Jewelry District.
I successfully Graduated and obtained the Graduate Diamonds and Colored Stones Diplomas leading to the prestigious GIA Graduate Gemologist ''Club'' I am proud to be part of.
There, I met amazing people who, step by step, introduced me to the Magnificent Jewels world.
To live my passion, after various amazing experiences in the Business Development and Jewelry/Gemstone industry, I founded World Wide Weil Jewelry a company specializing in custom jewelry design, rare antique, vintage and modern jewelry, fine colored gemstones and the estate jewelry from famous houses such as Carvin French, Cartier, Van Cleef & Arpels, Tiffany, Buccellati, Harry Winston, Graff, Bvlgari and many many more.
My firm also offers one-of-a-kind Antique/Vintage and Antique/Vintage Style Engagement and Cocktail Rings Handcrafted in Europe!
I approach my customers with fresh eyes and my main goal is to offer unusual pieces, an outstanding customer service and the best shopping experience possible.
The company was founded with a single mission: to be the most professional, creative and helpful online jewelry company (through WeilJewelry, our online store), in the Miami area where we are now located, but also accross the United States and...WorldWide since we ship all over the world.
We are proud to have customers in 48 states of the USA, and in 22 countries including the United States (with Puerto Rico & The US Virgin Island), Canada, Mexico, Panama, France, Switzerland, Germany, Italy, England, Scotland, Ireland, Danemark, Sweden, Australia, New Zealand, China, Hong-Kong, Singapore, Taiwan, Japan, The United Arab Emirates & Israel.
We speak English (obviously), French, Spanish, Hebrew and a little bit of Mandarin.
