‘Where passion and experience make the difference’
That’s more than just a motto at Dayekh Gems – it’s a way of life.
Dayekh Gems is a family run business, now into its second generation. Hassan Dayekh opened the Antwerp store in 1975 after 25 years of mining experience in West Africa, and since then the company has evolved from a rough diamond distributor to a polishing company producing some of the world’s most distinguished diamonds. Dayekh’s capable hands transformed the Challenger I, II, III and IV from 295 carat stones in rough into four internally flawless white diamonds weighing 115.83 carats, 26,08 carats, 16,41 carats and 3,27 carats respectively.
Routine has never been part of the Dayekh ethos, and the company has progressed in leaps and bounds since its early days as a manufacturing firm. With a firm grounding in mining and acquired expertise in polishing and retail, Dayekh Gems has a unique understanding of the diamond industry and can follow the journey of a gem all the way from the ground to the finished jewel on your finger.
The proudest asset at Dayekh Gems is the ‘D’ Brilliant Cut, an exquisite diamond at the forefront of diamond craftsmanship. It takes a Master Polisher to create the ‘D’ Brilliant Cut from its rough form, and the result is a 16-sided, 105-faceted stone with a lotus flower pattern rather than the basic arrows on the pavilion. This design breaks the light into a myriad of frequencies, resulting in more light scintillation, sparkle and brilliance.
Having wowed diamond connoisseurs with the ‘D’ Brilliant Cut, the team at Dayekh Gems is now developing a sequel: the ‘Premium’ D Brilliant Cut. The pinnacle of sparkle, brilliance and fire, this gem looks set to become the superstar of diamonds and will soon be hot property among those in the know.
