Paul Haig, owner of Haig's of Rochester, is both a stone cutter and collector. From the beginning, he has worked with only natural gemstones, including opal, a speciality of his unequaled by other area jewelers.
In addition to jewelry, Haig is also an avid collector of Asian antiques -- an interest inspired by his family's love for Asian art and culture. He and his wife's private antique Asian art collection gave rise to Haig Galleries in the 1990s.
