The Takat family takes its gemstones seriously. The company’s founder, Haji Nisar Ahmed Takat, came from an old Indian family of precious stone craftsmen. 

Today, three generations of family are involved in the business and Takat has gained an international reputation for finding the highest quality stones.

The company takes exceptional emeralds, tanzanite, Paraiba tourmaline and sapphires, among many other rare and unique stones, and accents them with diamonds to create a look that’s red carpet ready.
