Six Generations in The United States

Samuel, Jr. Joseph continued to expand the business into wider domestic and international markets and served on many industry organizations, including as a governor of the GIA for fifteen years. Joe passed away in 2018. Alan Levy and Janet Samuel Levy have successfully continued the business over the past 35 years. Alan expanded the business throughout Asia, focusing on markets in Hong Kong, Singapore,Taiwan and Japan. They now work alongside their daughter, Lauren Levy, the 6th generation.

During the past several decades DeYoung has maintained a strong presence in the United States and has expanded into overseas markets, including Europe and Asia. Alan, Janet and Lauren are respected experts in the industry and continue to buy and sell rare and unusual jewels.
