OUR STORY

A Premier Jewelry Store in Miami, Florida

Our tradition as merchants and dedication to customer service started three generations ago with our patriarch Joel Brill who in 1925 shortly after immigrating from Poland to Cuba, opened his first store at The Royal Palm Hotel. Helped by his daughter Felicia and son Jacobo, Joel strived to provide his customers with the best service and selection.  
Pan American Gem was founded forty-four years ago in downtown Miami by the late Jacobo Rosenhoch. He brought with him from Cuba, thirty years experience in business, selling souvenirs and jewelry. His son Joel and subsequently, Joel’s wife, Susana, worked with him for many years until his retirement. Joel has dedicated 35 years to the business and Susana, 20. Joel studied Architecture at the University of Miami and gemology at the Gemological Institute of America and is certified in diamond and colored stones analysis. He has a wide knowledge of jewelry materials with a special interest in organic gem materials (pearls, coral, jet, amber, bone, shell etc.).Susana earned a master's degrees from Florida International University in Public Health with a specialty in Epidemiology. She has a keen eye for jewelry design, style, colors and fashion trends. We have recently relocated to the International Jewelry Center, a hub for jewelry needs.
