From the very beginning, diamonds have been at the heart of Mouawad’s longstanding history, which spans more than 127 years of expertise. Through the years the family’s deep affinity for these exquisite gems has been demonstrated in many different ways, not least of which through its passion for acquiring some of the world’s most magnificent diamonds. This museum-quality collection, arguably one of the finest today in private hands, features highly prized historical diamonds as well as some of the largest in existence, and a number that have been bestowed with the Mouawad name.
Sharing this passion with the world has always been important, whether through events such the largest diamond exhibit in the world in Paris, made possible by Robert Mouawad in 2001, or through supporting the betterment of the overall industry, which was formally recognised through the naming in 1997 of The Robert Mouawad Campus at the Gemological Institute of America (GIA).
The Mouawad house has also shared this passion for over a century through its sourcing of the finest gems from around the world, designing its own jewellery and timepieces that are manufactured in its own workshops. Today, the thriving evolution of this dazzling tradition is led by fourth-generation co-guardians, Fred, Alain, and Pascal Mouawad, whose firm commitment to excellence has led the brand to forge ahead into the world of diamond artistry. This dedication to the craft has led Mouawad to become a De Beers sight-holder and manufacture high-quality diamonds from the rough.
This exclusive privilege bestows on Mouawad, a direct and unique access to conflict-free rough diamonds. Only the finest are carefully selected before being delicately crafted to maximise their beauty and value by their highly skilled diamond cutters. As the rough stone passes through its journey, it is handled with passion and infinite love, and undergoes twelve quality control points to ensure it lives up to Mouawad’s long-standing promise of excellence.
By nurturing the diamond through a completely in-house process, each one is entirely traceable from its rough state through to its final, immaculate polishing. This allows Mouawad to issue an authenticity report for every Mouawad Crafted Diamond, containing the Mouawad Diamond Promise- pledging that all Mouawad crafted diamonds are responsibly sourced and masterfully crafted, and that every diamond is accompanied by a grading report from an internationally reputed laboratory.
No two diamonds are ever alike, and as such each is a unique joy to behold. In the hands of Mouawad however, this truth is imbued with the highest artistry and authenticity, resulting in exceptional diamonds that create exceptional moments.
