EMD DIAMONDS Diamond professionals since 1982

Diamond Professionals - A Family Endeavor

The EMD family heritage is closely entwined with the world of diamonds. Our company history is of a family striving to provide the utmost quality diamonds and the highest excellence in customer care.

Born in Tel Aviv in 1958, Moshe Eliav decided to become a diamond cutter at the age of 21; he became a seasoned expert as the years passed, and his success led to EMD Diamonds' founding. Since its inception, the company has grown from a one-man operation into a renowned diamond distributor. In 1988, Moshe opened the company's first international office in New York, the diamond capital of America, paving the way for globalization while making EMD Diamonds the preferred supplier to high-end retailers and luxury jewelry brands. Moshe's sons inherited their father's love of diamonds and soon followed in his footsteps. With the help of his sons, EMD Diamonds became one of the most prestigious diamond companies, gaining a reputation for offering the finest diamonds and providing exceptional customer service.

EMD Diamonds is a proud member of the Responsible Jewelry Council (RJC), World Federation of Diamond Bourses (WFDB), American Gem Society (AGS), Retail Jewelers Organization (RJO), Continental Buying Group (CBG), and Independent Jewelers Organization (IJO).
