George Chatila first opened his doors in Beirut in 1860, quickly establishing his reputation as a discerning jeweler. One and a half-century later it is still the Chatila family, now in the third and fourth generations own the business and continue in the founder’s footsteps.
The House of Chatila pioneered colored diamonds, which have since become established as the most prized of gems. One of a mere handful of the world’s known red diamonds, “The Flame of Argyle” has recently been sold at Chatila. All members of the family take part in the process of selection and valuation of unique and rare gemstones. The 57-carat “Rangoon Splendour” ruby, the legendary Hapsburg “Archduke Joseph” 76-carat D flawless cushion-shape diamond, and the “Indore Pears” at approximately 45 carats each, are some of the historic gems to have passed through their hands.
