Born in 1961 in Odessa, former Soviet Ukraine, Michael Bromberg earned his masters degree in mechanical engineering at the Odessa University and worked as a production engineer on a machine plant for six years.
However, jewelry design and jewelry making always were his affections. But in the former Soviet Union it was illegal to poses precious metals in any but the smallest quantities. A designer could work for the government producing approved traditional designs on one of the state jewelry plants but could not legally pursue this art independently without risking imprisonment.
After the refuge from the Soviet Union to the USA in 1989, Michael decided to pursue his jewelry designing career and founded Danco Gallery, jewelry design company with a retail jewelry store in Greenwich Village section of New York City. For three years, he was designing and hand crafting one of kind museum reproductions for such customers as H.Stern Jewelers and Metropolitan Museum of Art.
When in 1994 Michael decided to design his own collection of contemporary silver jewelry it had such an unexpected success that he decided to sell the store in order to devote full time to designing and manufacturing of jewelry. Engineering background helped him to develop technology and start production of his first collection of sterling silver watches.
Since then Michael's jewelry was selling at such stores as Neiman Marcus, Nordstrom, Bloomingdale's, Barney's, Chicago Museum Of Contemporary Art, Weisman Art Museum and numerous upscale art and craft galleries and boutiques in Europe Japan and United States.
Michael Bromberg was the winner of the Accent Magazine Annual Silver Jewelry and Watch Design Competition several years in a row.
