Robert Wander was a wildly prolific jewelry designer who passed away at 76 in 2019. He was born into a jewelry family who owned salons in New York City and Paris, as well as jewelry concessions in fine department stores though out the American southwest. After serving as president of his family firm for a time, he set out on his own and began producing his own designs under the name Winc Inc. He produced jewelry over four decades and was a pioneer in using workshops in Hong Kong to produce his work.
