Founded in 1978, Hans Brumann Inc. (HBI) started as a small jewelry shop in Makati that catered to Manila’s elite and foreign expatriates. It was an exclusive shop that dealt more on made-to-order items designed by Mr. Hans Brumann, rather than retail purchases. All jewelry made were timeless masterpieces with contemporary designs and exceptional craftsmanship set in platinum, 18k or 14k yellow, gold, white gold or both. Initial concentration and specialty were in pieces made with South Sea Pearls, Mother of Pearl and platinum. As time passed, due to significant achievements leading to increased orders and clientele, Hans Brumann Inc. grew and expanded with its second outlet at the Lobby Level of Shangri-La Hotel Makati on August 1993.
In October 1999, HBI moved into new projects and ventures. Together with another Filipino based jeweler, HBI had joined forces with Jewelers Consortium of the Philippines in New York and started its exportation to the USA. Exhibitions locally and abroad that showcased the best hand crafted and designed pieces were featured, thus the realization that there was a demand for Philippine hand made quality jewelry. In fact, with the boom of shopping malls in the Philippines, we have now opened two more new outlets: HEMM Hans Brumann located in Rockwell Center, Makati in November 2001 and HEMM Hans Brumann located at The Podium, Pasig City in November 2002.
Today, Hans Brumann Inc. is still continuing its services and making each HBI jewelry owner proud to wear its products.
