Lorraine E. Schwartz Inc. is based in New York City. The jewelry business has been a part of Schwartz’s family for three generations, run mostly as a small business. Schwartz took over the family business in 1989, after her mother died from cancer at age 55. She renamed the company Lorraine Schwartz Diamonds & Fine Jewelry, which produces Lorraine Schwartz Engagement Rings.
