In 1966, following training at the renowned jeweler Hemmerle in Munich, Pedro Boregaard worked for several years as a jeweler in London and Nottingham, England, before settling in New York City in 1974.
Starting at the top, Tiffany & Company, his primary focus was the development and execution of the creations of Tiffany's star designers, Paloma Picasso, Elsa Peretti and Angela Cummings.
Venturing out on his own in 1983, he left Tiffany and opened his own atelier on 48th Street overlooking Rockefeller Center. From this new base, he quickly established himself by winning numerous international design competitions. Soon his work was showcased throughout the United States in some of the finest retailers, including Bergdorf Goodman, Barney's and Bendel.
Moving uptown in 1994, Boregaard opened a new showroom and workshop on 53rd Street and Madison Avenue.
Nine years later when the 53rd street building fell to the wrecker's ball, Boregaard split his operations, establishing his workshop on Broadway and Lafayette, moving his design studio near his home on the Delaware River in picturesque western New York state.
2011, his 28th year in business, marked the opening of BOREGAARD JEWELER at 101 Main Street in Narrowsburg New York.
