Since 1901, gemstones and pearls have held captive the imagination of the Hahn family for over 100 years and spanning four generations. The 20th century saw their deep involvement further impact the coloured stone, diamond, and cultured pearl sector, providing unique stones to industry legends like Cartier, Van Cleef & Arpels, Boucheron, and many others. Throughout its evolution, the Hahn family has dedicated itself to preserving the highest examples of these gifts of Nature.
