George Hakim

The Story starts on the banks of the Bosphorus. Where George Hakim - Grandfather - first established his Jewellery business. Passed on from father to son since 1875 - the business is this family's supreme jewel. At a very young age George Hakim headed off to Europe in search of exposure to broaden his knowledge and widen his horizons - an adventure that very few people at his age undertook.


Adventurous and tenacious his search took him to the four corners of the globe... Africa, Thailand, Hong Kong, China and India among others... it is these travels that exposed him to the best of the best gemstones around the world. Today, George Hakim selectively imports precious stones from across the world, bringing in flawless diamonds from Antwerp and New York, emeralds from Colombia, rubies from Burma and sapphires from Sri Lanka.


In addition, George Hakim participates in fairs of international renown on every continent - Baselworld, Las Vegas, Hong Kong and the Arab countries, such as Doha, Bahrain, Kuwait and Abu Dhabi are but a few of the fairs that George Hakim attends yearly.


"The future is in safe hands. My children Elias, Karim, Nabil and Alain have graduated from the renowned GIA (Gemological Institute of America) and through their interaction with international suppliers and top artisans have acquired the experience and knowledge, it is their youth and modernity that actively contributes to the ever evolving nature of this business" says George Hakim. "Diligence, attention to detail and more importantly the pampering of our clients are the secrets of our success."
