Moussaieff Jewellers is synonymous with the finest and rarest gems which adorn the heads of international royalty and heads of states, as well as discerning collectors. The family has a long history in the high-end gems trade, dating back 800 years and originating in Bukhara, the main port of call on the famous silk route.
Moussaieff Jewellers was started in the 1850’s by Shlomo Moussaieff's great grandfather, a pearl merchant, with a fearless passion for gems. He would search for the most ravishing pearls from the Persian Gulf. His son Remo established himself as a stone dealer in Paris during the Belle Époque in the 1920’s where he dealt with all the fine jewellery houses, such as Cartier, selling not only oriental pearls which he sourced in the Gulf countries, but also rare gems. In 1963, Moussaieff Jewellers opened its Park Lane showrooms where they have discreetly built a prestigious international clientele and acquired a worldwide reputation for magnificent gems.
This was followed in 2006 with the opening of a magnificent flagship store at 172 New Bond Street. The beautifully designed 1930's art deco style boutique, boasts one of most extravagant and extraordinary jewellery displays in London. Each showcase features a mix of fashionable design, finely cut stones as well as historic pieces with important provenances.
