Hi, I’m Erdem! I’m the owner and craftsman of VirtuE Jewelers.
I am a master jeweler currently living in Massachusetts with my wife, two young children, and our dog. I was born and raised in the beautiful multi-cultural city of Istanbul, Turkey.
Erdem is Turkish for “virtue”, and virtue can be defined as “high moral standards.” When it comes to making jewelry,I am always intentional to create pieces that meet my high moral standards.I create pieces that are unique, strong, well-crafted, and beautiful.I value how my name has such a strong meaning, and it has shaped me into who I am today—this is why I chose to name my business VirtuE Jewelers.
As a child, I dreamed about coming to America and when I was 18 this dream came true. When I first came to the United States, I began working as an apprentice alongside my family’s jewelry store. It is here that I developed and perfected the fine craft of jewelry making. I have a passion for continued learning, so I have added GIA studies and diamond grading to my repertoire as well. I have been serving the East coast area for over 22 years. During this time, I have made thousands of custom orders for customers all over the USA, and the world!
I’m eager to be a master in all areas of my craft, including 3-D design and pave setting. I’m constantly learning new things, and I am dedicated to making high-quality jewelry. My knowledge and dedication to my craft allows me to create unlimited designs for you! If you’re looking for a custom design, please send me a message, I’d love to hear your ideas!
Thank you for visiting my shop and taking the time to learn more about me
