Since 1907 Kwiat has captivated the imagination with breathtaking diamonds and inspired diamond jewelry. Adhering to the techniques passed down from one generation to the next, Kwiat precisely cuts each stone to reveal the maximum brilliance from within and designs every piece of jewelry to be worthy of the Kwiat trademark.

Throughout its history, Kwiat has continually redefined itself; from a vintage jewelry store to a top supplier of diamonds to the industry and now one of the hottest names in bridal and high fashion diamond jewelry.

Today, founder Sam Kwiat�s great-grandchildren lead the way for the company, building on the family�s long-standing reputation for integrity, loyalty and commitment to their customers.

In 1907 Sam Kwiat founded the company �Kwiat� and opened a store on Canal Street that specialized in selling vintage diamonds.

In fact, the history and evolution of the Kwiat brand mirrors the progress of the fine-jewelry business in the U.S. in many ways. Sam Kwiat's son David eventually took over, building the family business into a manufacturer and vendor of high-quality diamonds for New York City's jewelry market and in doing so, helping to found the 47th Street diamond district in the 1950s. David also began making diamond jewelry for retailers, and in 1955 he put out a jewelry catalog, one of the first, to reach smaller markets around the country.

Around 2001 the Kwiat family, including David's two sons Lowell and Sheldon, decided it was time to transform Kwiat into a brand. They hired veteran fine-jewelry designer Janice DeBell away from Tiffany & Co. in 2004 and introduced collections that ranged in price from $1,000 to several million dollars. Today DeBell creates up to five collections a year in addition to a line of bridal pieces and important one-of-a-kind items.
