Horst Kruse emigrated to the USA from Germany in the 1950's. After completing a 5 year apprenticeship in metal working he founded Baron Enterprises, a jewelry manufacturing company. Baron's customers have included Tiffany, Jared Stores, Kay Jewelers, and HSN. In the early 90's the company grew to become the largest manufacturer of jewelry product units for QVC. Twenty years ago he found a love for making sterling Christmas Ornaments for collectors. Baron's ornaments are produced in limited editions, individually handcrafted in the USA and always hand finished and polished by Baron himself.
