Founded by Danny Dilman in 2002, Paragon Pearls is located in New York City’s famed 47th Street jewelry district. Dilman, who had started in his family’s pearl business in 1988, discovered a passion for pearls early in his career. In founding Paragon, he began devoting his attention and resources to securing quality pearls and the company quickly became an industry leader. “Pearls interest me as their history, variety and cultivation process are all fascinating subjects to me. They are timelessly beautiful and always elegant. At Paragon, we strive to share our passion with the whole country,” says Dilman. Today, Paragon Pearls products can be found in fine jewelry retailers in all 50 states. Paragon’s retail partners benefit from an extensive range of support services, including memo program, in-store events and co-op advertising.
