EMD DIAMONDS Diamond professionals since 1979

Humble beginnings

EMD’s CEO & president Moshe Eliav entered into the diamond industry in 1979, as a hardworking junior cutter and polisher in a diamond workshop, within a team of 30. After just one year, the workshop owner realized Moshe’s potential and promoted him to Workshop Manager.

EMD is born

In 1981, Moshe used the skillset he gained as a workshop manager in order to create his own diamond manufacturing business. He took a small loan of $1000 to purchase his first rough stone and founded EMD. The business has since grown from a one-man venture into a full-fledged, growing diamond producing company.

Father and Sons

Nir joined the business in 2007 to help his proud father Moshe run EMD, and, within his first year at the family business, was instrumental in the expansion of EMD's diamond collection, adding various fancy shapes and colors into the mix and further claiming his specialty in the diamond industry. In addition, he improved business management practices and customer collaboration.

GIA and Scale

With an expanded inventory of 2,000+ GIA-certified diamonds in stock at any given time, EMD staked its claim as a leading diamond manufacturer in 2010. Largely focusing on the North American market, EMD offers diamonds ranging in carat weight from 0.70-4.00, in a variety of shapes, including oval, radiant, pear, cushion, emerald, princess, marquise and round.
