Dennis and Peggy’s son, Evan, joined the business in 2013 and brought with him business acumen and a knowledge of gemology and jewelry creation using new-world techniques. deJonghe’s original designs have garnered worldwide recognition for their beauty, quality and elegant lines, and serve as the perfect one-of-a-kind gift for that special, one-of-a-kind person.
