Since before the turn of the 20th century, the Chalfen family were proud watchmakers who worked from a jewellery shop in London until Simon Chalfen’s untimely death in 1934. In 1958 they formed the jewellery design house H. Chalfen Ltd. Their goal: to manufacture diamond jewellery for the trade.
The Chalfen name became synonymous with quality. The name, although not known to the public, was fast gaining a reputation in the trade as one of the best manufacturers in the country. A great number of fine quality retailers began turning to Chalfen for their diamond jewellery.

Today the Chalfen name is a household name. They continue to make their products in the heart of Hatton Garden.
