Sylvia Heiden continues a four generation family tradition of working in the diamond and jewelry industry. She was born and raised in Antwerp, Belgium -the diamond capital of the world.

Sylvia's first memories are of playing in her grandmother's jewelry box. From a young age she was steeped in the finer points of jewelry aesthetic, design and marketing. However, in order to broaden her horizons and exposure to international design, she moved to New York City to study and earn a degree in Finance as well as take additional post-graduate Design coursework at the Prestigious Fashion Institute of Technology.

She began her commercial business rather prosaically, at first designing jewelry for a family friend based around a collection of loose semi-precious stones purchased on a lengthy trip to South America. Her skills and careful eye were quickly recognized by others in the New York City Jewelry industry and she was given the opportunity to market and represent a Fine Jewelry line. Shortly afterwards she was asked to design exclusive jewelry collections for prestigious retailers, including a museum store, well-known Madison Avenue fixtures and high end catalogue companies.

Briati was successfully launched in 2006 first with diamond and gold collections and has expanded the offerings over the years to include pearls, semi-precious stones and Sterling Silver collections

The hallmark of Briati creations is its fine attention to detail, incorporating the highest quality craftsmanship. Sylvia's appreciation of fine design and attention to the smallest detail allows her to insure that each Briati piece is destined to become a favorite part of the recipient's wardrobe.
