In 1907, Sam Kwiat started in the diamond jewelry business. He never imagined that his passion would take hold for generations to come. Together with his son, David, they grew a small family shop into a diamond legacy. More than a century later, the Kwiat family continues to design and craft the most exquisite diamond jewelry.
We look forward to helping you find the perfect diamond design. Please let us know if you prefer to visit the Kwiat boutique at 773 Madison Avenue in New York City or speak with a boutique associate over the phone.

Carat is often the first thing to come to mind when thinking about a diamond’s size. Size and carat weight are closely related but there are other factors in a diamond’s appearance. Cut and shape also play a role in whether the diamond appears visually larger or smaller than its actual carat weight.
A properly cut diamond will not have too much weight in hidden areas. The added weight increases the cost without giving the diamond a larger appearance. At Kwiat, we cut our diamonds to keep the carat weight in the right places. Each gem has the widest possible diameter to appear larger than other diamonds of comparable carat weight. And because of their superior cut, our diamonds will appear whiter than their GIA color grade. We call this the Kwiat Tiara® Cut.
Diamonds are rated on a color scale developed by the GIA, the world’s premier diamond grading nonprofit. The color grading system is based on the alphabet, beginning with the letter D and running all the way through Z. A grade of D is the best possible grade a diamond can receive, which translates to an absence of color. Diamonds with this grade tend to be the most rare and valuable.
Clarity refers to the presence of imperfections, known as inclusions, in the crystal structure of the diamond. Nearly all diamonds contain some sort of inclusion, as they are part of a diamond’s characteristics and structure. An inclusion within a diamond is natural, and on the higher end of the clarity scale, does not take away from its beauty.
The exclusive Ashoka diamond is cut to amplify brilliance, resulting in a stone that looks larger than an emerald cut diamond of the same carat weight. Here, a row of Ashoka stones takes center stage, flanked by stunning calibré cut sapphires. The platinum ring is designed to be ultra-comfortable, with minimal prongs that securely hold the stones while allowing more light to enter.

All Kwiat diamonds are graded by the GIA and come with a GIA report.
About The Ashoka® Collection
Available exclusively at Kwiat in the U.S., the trademarked Ashoka diamond has 62 precisely arranged facets—a consistency that sets it apart from all other fancy shapes. These precise dimensions optimize brilliance, creating a stone that looks 30%-50% larger than an emerald cut diamond of the same carat weight. Kwiat complements the graceful, elongated shape of Ashoka in light, airy designs that enhance the diamonds’ sparkle and make them appear to “float” against the skin.
