Peter Lindeman was born in Germany and grew up in Uruguay, where he began his career in jewelry apprenticing with a European firm. By 1947, Lindeman moved to New York at 17 years old and found work with a few high-end jewelers. After working for several years, he began designing and in 1955 he created his signature maker’s mark (a teardrop with an “L”) which helped him promote his creations under his own name. His designs sold well and his workshop began making pieces for notable wholesale clients such as Tiffany & Co amongst others.
