About Paul Haig

As both a stone collector and cutter, Paul has been involved in the entire process of transforming a raw natural stone into a jewel. Since he began his jewelry business in 1973, Paul specializes in opals and has a vast collection and knowledge of the vibrant and delicate stone — an uncommon knowledge that is unequaled among area jewelers.

In addition to his jewelry interests, Paul is also an avid collector of Asian antiques. He and his wife, Diane, have traveled the world for the most beautiful antique Asian lacquers, textiles, bronzes, prints and ceramics.

In 2005, Paul announced the beginning of a new era in the retail history of his two companies — Haig Jewelers and Haig Galleries. The two companies merged to form Haig’s of Rochester Fine Jewelry & Objects of Art. The merger illustrates the unique evolution of two exceptional stores.

In the fall of 2006, Paul and collaborator Marla Shelton released a book about grading antique Chinese textiles. Threads of Gold: Chinese Textiles from Ming to Ch’ing is a comprehensive guide to collectible Chinese textiles. The book includes an extensive number of examples and an understandable evaluation system. Threads of Gold is beautifully illustrated with over 500 detailed photos of ceremonial court robes, badges and decorative textiles dating from the Ming Dynasty (1368-1644) to the Ch’ing Dynasty (1644-1911). The book was written for historians, Asian studies scholars, textile collectors and enthusiasts alike.
