The Cortes family business begins in 1962 when a young jeweler in Bogota's bustling business district earned a reputation as an outstanding jeweler. Leonardo was not satisfied to merely create the finest pieces of jewelry, but instead that service and integrity be the cornerstone of every design, repair and purchase.

In the 1980s Leonardo moved his family to Florida and quickly established himself as one of the premier jewelers in the Tampa Bay area. He commuted between New York City and Florida, training his peers to repair Rolex watches. In the 1990s Leonardo and his son, Helman, opened Mary Helen Jewelers. With his young Helman's artistic flair, the business took on a very creative dimension.
