Brand History

Four Generations · One Passion
Four Generations · One Passion

The Leo Diamond® is the first special cut diamond developed by Leo Schachter Diamonds. Its history is a story of love: of craftsmen and artisans who love what they do, of the love between father, son, and family, and of those seeking a way to express their feelings for the loves in their lives.

It all began over fifty years ago, when Leo Schachter took the understanding and passion for diamonds he inherited from his father Max, himself a skilled diamond-cutter educated in Antwerp a half-century earlier, and established his eponymous company. The business has remained a family-run entity ever since; Leo passed his love for his craft to two subsequent generations and to every single artisan in the company, each of whom strives to craft the most brilliant and magnificently-cut diamonds in the world. Every person working at Leo Schachter Diamonds is committed to the integrity and quality of both the diamonds that they craft and the way in which they are sold. The company has long supported and given back to the communities hosting its operations across the world, and continues to do so to this day.

Together, the Leo Schachter family guides The Leo Diamond® on its journey, transforming it from a rough diamond into the world’s most brilliant symbol of love.

“We’re successful because we have a passion for what we do. It never feels like work.”
By Leo Schachter
