Michael Hezar, CEO & Designer
Southern California native, Michael Hezar, has become a successful self-made jewelry designer and a visionary businessman. While Michael was studying to earn a business degree at California State University, Fullerton, he took a job working with a jeweler, not expecting this simple job to quickly become his passion. In 1990, he began his own journey in the jewelry industry by manufacturing jewelry for outside brands and designers while creating its own masterfully crafted bridal designs. In 2005, Michael finally decided to pursue his dream of designing high-end diamond and gemstone fine jewelry collections, rebranding his company as Michael John Jewelry.

Michael's designs have won several prestigious awards for his flawless work of art, inspired by elements of nature, architecture and innovative geometry, simply exceeding the expectations of consumers with exquisite taste and style. He is proud of the quality, creativity and attention to detail in each of his creations.
