The Birth of a
Jewelry is more than a purchase, It’s a Statement
“A statement of love from your significant other, a statement of confidence in yourself, a statement of appreciation for the finer things in life.”
- Morris Gad, Safi Kilima Tanzanite Founder
In 2010, Safi Kilima Tanzanite was established deep within the mines of Africa’s highest mountain range by founder, Morris Gad.
Morris promptly set off for the only location on Earth where the geological phenomenon can be found, Mt. Kilimanjaro in Tanzania to bring back the luscious, rare Tanzanite gemstones. A once small collection of jewelry has now grown into a family affair as Morris enlisted the help of his sons and daughter to grow the company. Today, Safi Kilima Tanzanite represents a foundation built out of quality, expertise and a commitment to delivering statement making Tanzanite pieces.
“There is only so much one can do. But together, we can move mountains.”
For the past three decades, Morris Gad has held the title of CEO of Diamonds International a privately held International jewelry manufacturer and retailer. Along with Diamonds International, Mr. Morris works tirelessly to give back to the world. “There is only so much one can do. But together, we can move mountains” Gad, a dedicated philanthropist said.
The Gad family, in partnership with Diamonds International recently raised funds for Hurricane Irma Relief, which directly affected Diamonds International employees and their families. Giving back through charity service and contributions is a privilege that DI is proud to continue. The company has proudly supported causes in favor of world education, disaster relief, orphanage services, and more.
