Chalfen of London
The Chalfen family started out as watchmakers who, at the turn of the 20th century worked from a jewellery shop in London until Simon Chalfen’s untimely death in 1934. His son, Harry Chalfen formed the jewellery design house H. Chalfen Ltd. in 1958 which his son Brian took over in 1965. Brian’s vision was to push the company forward by using the very best diamond selection criteria and the most skilled British craftsmen in the trade. Since then the Chalfen name has become synonymous with quality of design and execution.
Chalfen of London are one of Hatton Gardens’ foremost diamond jewellery experts. They believe the quality of a diamond should not be measured by its colour and clarity alone, but rather the amount of sparkle that the diamond exhibits. The sparkle or scintillation of a diamond is crucial to its’ appeal and this is impossible to read from the information written on a diamond’s certificate. That is why Chalfen sort through thousands of GIA certificated diamonds by eye to select only those that are worthy of “The Chalfen Promise”.
