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.
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. 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 a company specializing in 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 custom jewelry as well as one-of-a-kind Vintage and Vintage Style Engagement and Cocktail Rings Handcrafted in Manhattan, New York.
I approach my customers with fresh eyes and my main goal is to offer unusual pieces that will allow them to feel special!
And because I think innovation and creativity are synonyms of growth, World Wide Weil provides jewelry professionals with full consulting services adapted to their activities: business development, marketing, diamond and gemstones grading, appraisals.
The company was founded with a single mission: to be the most professional, creative and helpful jewelry company in New York and...WorldWide since we ship all over the world.
