Rene’s love affair with the world of jewelry began at an early age, watching his father, a master craftsman, create intricately beautiful pieces quickly developed into a passion. Rene moved from his native Nicaragua, to South Florida to attend college in order to pursue an education unavailable to him in his home country, but his innate attraction to the art of jewelry making impelled him to seek out a career as a goldsmith.
Rene’s collections are always evolving, always hand-made in his South Florida Studio using recycled precious metals, set with responsibly sourced gemstones, employing traditional and cutting edge jewelrymaking techniques. He has trained each one of his artisans to make jewelry in the same way his father taught him.
For the next few years, Rene had the good fortune of working alongside some of the most skillful jewelers in South Florida allowing him to refine his craft. In the early 1990s, Rene formed Rene Escobar Inc., a studio, where for nearly twenty years, he created one-of-a-kind pieces for some of the finest collectors throughout the southeastern United States.
