Beyond the glitz and glamor, Tessera owners Carl and Papat Fider are determined to prove that jewelry can also be an investment that will last forever.

A tessera is a piece of tile used to create elaborate mosaics. Used since Roman times, a tessera could be a number of things like stone, glass, or ceramic, which are then cut into shapes, much like a diamond. In fact, that’s the reason for the name of Carl and Papat Fider’s venture, Tessera—now one of the country’s leading jewelers.

Both partners lead important roles in the company's day-to-day activities. As the CEO of Tessera, Carl handles marketing and strategy while his wife, Papat, takes on the mantle of Sales Director in addition to managing retail operations.

From a business standpoint, Tessera aims to be an aspirational luxury brand that offers the widest selection of natural, certified, and conflict-free diamonds in the Philippines. And they've certainly achieved that as the country’s leading choice jeweler.
