A New Start on Life
A Fateful Meeting
Isaac and Orna both happen to be invited to a pool party at the Hilton Hotel in Jerusalem. In the parking lot of the hotel Isaac swoops in and takes Orna’s parking spot. On the way into the hotel, she confronts Isaac for his brazen behavior. From that moment on, Isaac and Orna begin their partnership both in life and business.
At 1982, Always a free thinker, when Isaac proposes to Orna he surprises her with a pair of diamond earrings in lieu of a traditional engagement ring. Their joyous wedding is celebrated at the same Jerusalem hotel where they first met two years previously.

The First International Exhibition
An Iconic Collection
In the 1970’s, the high pollution levels in Lake Biwa virtually eliminate the production of Biwa pearls, the flat coin-shaped pearls exclusively found in the ancient lake in Japan. Isaac and Orna purchase the last remaining inventory of Biwa Pearls and create from them one of their all-time most popular collections, the feminine Biwa Collection.
