Stephen Bittman has been with Diamonds Direct since 2013. He was born and raised in Binghamton, New York. Bittman attended Syracuse University where he studied economics and business. He began his career working for a successful group of Binghamton investment bankers managing various real estate properties.
After four years, Bittman joined his father in his wholesale jewelry business in Binghamton. He soon began to reshape the business into a retail operation and commenced by developing stores within a 90 mile radius of the home base. He ultimately operated 4 stores in the region, and became the President and Owner of the company upon his father’s retirement. Bittman ran the operations for 30 years and in 2006 chose to explore other opportunities, and left the jewelry business and came to Richmond to become involved in other business ventures. He welcomed the opportunity to re-enter the jewelry field and is very excited to be part of the Diamonds-Direct team of professionals.
Bittman is married to his wife, Nancy, and they have two children; a daughter and a son-in-law, and a son. They are the proud grandparents to one grandchild. In his free time Bittman enjoys playing golf, traveling, reading novels, and socializing with friends.
