New York based spouses David and Nancy Dubin opened their family business David Dubin Ltd. in 1980 and immediately became famous. The key to their success was their bright and extraordinary designs featured in expensive catalogs distributed in the United States and abroad. They sold their jewelry pieces in such stores as Saks Fifth Avenue, Neiman Marcus, and Bloomingdales. The company, unfortunately, lasted for a decade, in the 1980s. Although David and Nancy continued to produce their jewelry for some time. They even decided to start the production of silver jewelry with inexpensive stones, but this turn did not prolong the life of the company. According to their interviews, their customer base was constantly shrinking. Besides, it was very difficult to be a small, creative company those days. In the early 1990s, the American market sharply changed its focus from costume jewelry to gold and platinum products. This prompted the owners to close the business.
After the closure of the company, Nancy Dubin became vice president of Victoria Design, Victoria + Co.’s jewelry division. Her husband David went into real estate.
