The Inspiring Journey of Our Family Legacy
Mon Cheri Diamonds was started by a resilient Syrian family led by the matriarch Antoine Almaz whose journey from the heart of the Middle East to the bustling streets of New York and eventually to the vibrant tapestry of Los Angeles is a testament to the power of dreams and determination.
In 1977, Antoine Almaz gathered his family and moved to America in hopes of a better life. The Almaz family first arrived in Brooklyn, New York where they discovered the artistry of jewelry making, captivated by the allure of crafting precious pieces that tell stories.The family then relocated to Los Angeles in 1978, opening their first jewelry booth in the Downtown Los Angeles Jewelry District.
The youngest son Sam Almaz discovered a newfound passion for the business, seeing the endless opportunities this business had to offer for him and his family. Driven by the spirit of entrepreneurship and a commitment to quality, Sam led the family into expanding their presence, ultimately blossoming into a chain of seven retail stores.
Today, their story is a testament to the American Dream, where a family's dedication and love for their craft can transcend borders and cultures.
Our legacy lives as Mon Cheri Diamonds continues to be operated by a fourth generation of our dedicated family members. Despite our growth and success, we remain steadfast in upholding the values instilled in us from day one.
At the core of our philosophy is a commitment to crafting jewelry pieces with the highest level of craftsmanship. Each of our pieces is a testament to our unwavering dedication to quality, precision, and artistry.
