Established in San Francisco in 1991 by Federico de Vera as a creative undertaking in lifestyle, de Vera has come to symbolize a singular point of view in the beauty of objects as well as display. Curiosity of the natural world, passion for collecting and presentation, and desire to evolve has resulted in the opening of the New York City location in 2003.

The gallery shows a finely curated selection including Venetian glass, Japanese lacquer, ivory carvings, 18th century religious figures and antique jewelry. Another unique focus is de Vera jewelry incorporating rare antique elements such as Roman intaglios and Georgian brooches, with precious gemstones including rose-cut diamonds, baroque pearls and Sardinian coral.
