The story behind THE LEO® Collection of Diamonds begins with Leo Schachter. Leo was passionately committed to helping people celebrate their love for each other with the most brilliant symbol of love—a diamond. Leo was thrilled to pass down his love for diamond craftsmanship to his family. Now, for four generations, the master artisans at Leo Schachter remain fueled by a century-long passion striving to craft the most brilliant and magnificently cut diamonds in the world.

Our history includes reinventing the idea of how brilliant a diamond can be with the creation of THE LEO® Diamond, independently certified to be visibly brighter. We continued the quest for brilliance with new and unique patented innovations in diamond cutting technology, resulting in the colorful brilliance of THE LEO First Light® Diamond. Now we bring you THE LEO® Ideal Cut diamond, ideally proportioned for fire, sparkle, and brilliance.

THE LEO® Diamond, independently certified to be visibly brighter

Diamonds in THE LEO® collection can only be handcrafted by an expert diamantaire — a person with a keen eye, a steady hand, and a unique sensibility for beauty — under the guidance of master diamond artisans with at least 20 years experience in the art. These unrelenting standards ensure that every diamond that bears THE LEO® name will prove to be more brilliant than a generic diamond of comparable quality.

As a testament to their superior quality, the majority of our diamonds are certified for the 4Cs by the world’s most respected independent diamond grading labs, including the Gemological Institute of America (GIA) and Gemological Science International (GSI). THE LEO® Diamond is certified by GemEx®, the global leader for Diamond Light Performance certification.
