Master Jeweller & Ceo

David Hayman

David Hayman opened David Hayman Jewellers in 1981. With over 40 years of experience in the jewelry industry, he was on a mission to create beautiful, one of a kind jewelry designs that would be loved and handed down for generations.

In college, David studied art and specialized in 3-Dimensional design. After taking his first jewelry class, he fell in love with miniature sculpture by creating one of a kind commissions in silver, and then gold. Soon after, people began asking him to add diamonds and colored stones to his designs. David apprenticed to a very talented bench jeweler to perfect the art of setting stones.


Teri Hayman

Teri Hayman has been in the business with her husband David since 1981. Like her husband, she is also an Alumnus of GIA.

Teri is the reason David Hayman Jewellers is so passionate about giving back to our community who has contributed so much to our success. She also is the driving force behind David Hayman Jewellers supporting Meals on Wheels, National Charity League, Jewelers for Children, YMCA, Toys for Tots and many more local schools and charities with silent auction items.

Teri is also very active in The Littlest Angel Guild, a nonprofit dedicated to raising funds for the CHOC Children's Hospital.
