DF Walter Inc was originally founded over 30 years ago in NYC to design, develop, and produce exceptional jewelry for clients including Buccellati, Tiffany, Schlumberger and Fred Leighton, as well as independent designers.
Today we offer these same services to a private clientele, designing and producing bespoke and ready to wear jewelry by hand in the European tradition. We also offer restoration, repurposing, modification and repair.
David Walter is a Vermont based designer, goldsmith and platinumsmith who has been producing exceptional pieces of jewelry for clients since 1982.
In 1985 he founded DF Walter & Co in New York City. His earliest clients included Buccelati, Tiffany & Co., Fred Leighton, and Schlumberger, among others.
David's primary focus is the design and production of one of a kind jewelry pieces on a commission basis. He also specializes in the modification and repurposing of estate jewelry, as well as restoration and repair.
Julia Ricklis began apprenticing with David Walter in 2011 to study the design and production of high jewelry. In the last 3 years, under his guidance, she has become an accomplished bench jeweler working in gold, platinum and gemstones. Julia continues to expand her knowledge of construction and fabrication techniques, gemology, design and prototyping. Promoted to Studio Director in 2014, she is involved with the daily operations of the business from gemstone and materials search through invoicing, production scheduling and marketing strategy.
