Setting the Legacy
In Pampanga, year 1926, Santiago Lagman Ocampo went door-to-door with his karitela selling fine jewelry off of his collection. From that point on, his humble karitela would grow into a lasting family legacy.
The Next Generation
From Amada and Victor’s eight children, four graduated from the Gemological Institute of America, California, in the 1980’s. Vittsi, Louie, and Loo earned degrees in Gemology while the youngest, Dulzzi, received a certificate in Jewellery Design. Each of them pursued apprenticeship and further training to hone their craft in various reputable institutions in the USA.
These third generation Ocampo’s pioneers continue to contribute fresh ideas and innovations, making the Ocampo’s Fine Jewellery brand globally competitive and cherished by its patrons.
