Ovadia Diamonds: The Diamond Legacy

 Ovadia Diamonds: The Diamond LegacyOvadia Diamonds is today an established name in the world diamond industry. Founded by Ovadia Yosef, Founder and President of Ovadia Diamonds, has been in the diamond business for 50 years.

Beginning as a diamond polisher, Ovadia began trading and exporting diamonds in the 1980s, specialising in triangles and hearts, which were unusual at the time. Being an accomplished diamond polisher, Ovadia was able to use his expertise to improve the triangle cut, giving it more shine and brilliance. In the 1990s he invented a new fancy shape – the half-moon – which became a popular side stone that is widely manufactured.

Over time Ovadia has developed a reputation for expertise, trustworthiness and excellent service. Today, he is helped by his sons, daughters and sons-in-laws into the business. The younger generation has further expanded the business, and Ovadia now has offices in Hong Kong, London, Antwerp, New York, Los Angeles and Ramat Gan.

Ovadia Diamonds manufactures all fancy shapes and is a world leader in supplying triangles and heart shapes. The company manufactures in Israel, and buys most of its rough in Antwerp. In addition, as manufacturers they are able to offer better prices. They sell GIA and EGL certified as well as non-certified diamonds, supplying loose stones as well as matching pairs and layouts for jewellery. They have a diversified B2B client base, including importers, jewelry manufacturers and private jewelry stores.

Currently, the company is exhibiting in the IDI pavilion in the Hong Kong show. In preparation for the show, they are arranging meetings with clients in advance, and are hoping to meet new clients as well. They are bringing a lot of goods to the show – parcels, pairs and layouts for bracelets and necklaces of all types of fancy shaped side stones, from .25 carats up to 3 carats. They will also be bringing jewellery from their very successful brand, Illimitee, which is manufactured in Israel and sold to high end jewellery stores worldwide.
