Exclusive event celebrated over 150 years of combined history


On October 10, 2019, Harry Kotlar and Fredric H. Rubel Jewelers celebrated their respective anniversaries in a shared event. This exclusive event was held at Fredric H. Rubel Jewelers’ newly renovated Laguna Beach location. The highlights of the event were an interactive museum exhibition that showcased Harry Kotlar’s breadth of history articulated through its jewelry masterpieces as well as an in-house design illustrator for client’s to redesign their heirloom jewel or create and design their own Harry Kotlar jewel. 

Harry Kotlar and Fredric H. Rubel Jewelers each have decades of history — Harry Kotlar recently celebrated its 70th anniversary, while Fredric Rubel has been in operation for 90 years.  

“We believe that Fredric H. Rubel Jewelers is truly the perfect stage for Harry Kotlar in the Orange County community, says David Wiener, President and Head Designer of Harry Kotlar. “We share the same vision, core values and commitment to luxury and customer excellence.”


A Dazzling Night to Remember

Fredric H. Rubel Jewelers became a venue for an exhibit showcasing Harry Kotlar’s seven decades of commitment to perfection, quality and old-world craftsmanship. It featured the 70th Year Anniversary Collection, an expanded collection of Harry Kotlar’s hallmark design- the Artisan Pavé, rare diamonds and jewels worn by A-list celebrities of today like Rihanna, Celine Dion, Jennifer Lopez and Cate Blanchett to name a few.

“The evening was more unique than our regular events, says Gary Rubel, co-owner of Fredric H. Rubel Jewelers.  “Our entire store was curated with various Harry Kotlar designs and having the brand’s illustrator at our store gave our valued customers an opportunity to recreate and design beautiful pieces of jewelry that represented their style, charm and history.”

The event was an ultra-exclusive affair — among those who attended were established Harry Kotlar fans, jewelry and luxury watch collectors, Orange County’s elite businessmen, tastemakers, influencers and editors.  

“This was an opportunity to showcase the brand’s stunning jewelry and its style evolution to a roster of discerning clients who appreciate refined and classic designs”, says David Rubel, co-owner of Fredric H. Rubel Jewelers. “It was apparent that styles may have changed from one decade to the next but classic fine jewelry remains timeless.”

“Being able to present jewelry in the context of a museum as well as having a dynamic event like this allows both our companies to engage with a more complex consumer landscape, while building enduring relationships and welcoming the future of the diamond jewelry business arena”, says Czarah Cabrera, brand director for Harry Kotlar.
