Timeline


Jimmy Quiroga's grandparents founded the first retail store inside their hotel in Galicia, Spain in the 1890's. The family expanded to beautiful Havana, Cuba in 1923, while always maintaining their home in Spain. Their wholesale jewelry business was established in Cuba shortly afterwards as QUIROGA HERMANOS in the heart of Old Havana, and the family manufactured jewelry in Spain and Germany. Eventually the business passed on to Jimmy's father, Manuel, and evolved to become a premier manufacturer and distributor of fine jewelry in the country. In 1959 the Communist regime rose to power and confiscated all private businesses, including QUIROGA HERMANOS. Jimmy's grandparents returned to Spain, and in 1960, when Jimmy was 6 months old, Jimmy's parents relocated to Miami, Florida, leaving everything behind. They rebuilt the business from the ground up under the name of Lido Jewelry, Inc., believing that the name Quiroga was too difficult for North Americans to pronounce.

Since he was a child, Jimmy took an interest in the business, sketching designs which were later brought to life. He spent his Summers at his grandfather's home in Spain and traveled throughout Europe. It was there that his love of jewelry culminated, being exposed to the great museums and galleries, from traditional to contemporary. Upon graduation from St. Thomas of Villanova University with a degree in marketing, he joined the family business. He married his college sweetheart Vivian Pazos Quiroga, a corporate attorney and fine art investment consultant. She is also his muse and biggest fan, and has joined him as CEO of the company. Together they travel and work, seeking inspiration in the cultures, textures, and colors they come across. Other inspiration comes from their mutual love of Latin American fine art.

The outcome of these experiences and his endless creative drive is the JIMMY QUIROGA ® DESIGNS Fine Fashion Jewelry Line and the custom made JIMMY QUIROGA ® DESIGNS Couture Fine Jewelry Line. A variety of diamonds, precious and semi-precious gemstones are used, including a wide selection of cultured south sea and freshwater pearls, set in sterling silver, gold or platinum. The company has deep concerns for the environment and has a goal of making beautiful pieces that enhance people's lives while, at the same time, leaving our planet more sustainable than it was. The designs are created using primarily reclaimed metals and stones.

JIMMY QUIROGA ® DESIGNS has received recognition and awards for its quality and creativity from DIET COKE Silver Anniversary, INSTYLE MAGAZINE Miami Designer, MIAMI FASHION WEEK Jewerly Designer, the Miami-Dade County Mayor's office, the City of Miami Beach Mayor's office, the South Florida Hispanic Chamber of Commerce, GLADYS MAGAZINE numerous covers, the MIAMI HERALD NEWSPAPER Tropical Life Section cover, Florida Heart Research Foundation Award, DiversityBusiness.com as one of the "Top 500 Emerging Businesses in the U.S." among others.
