SIX GENERATIONS OF LUXURY JEWELRY EXCELLENCE
The Oliva family name dates back to 18th Century Europe, with a first generation of prominent traders of diamonds and gold throughout the region. Trading these precious metals and stones evolved into honing the art of fine jewelry-making. And it was not long before the Oliva name rose in prominence, eventually catching the eyes of the elite and assuming the prestigious role as court jewelers for the Royal Houses of Europe.
THE FAMILY'S FIFTH GENERATION
brought the business to the newly established country of Israel. Once rooted, Oliva grew to become the premiere jewelry and diamond manufacturer there. Then, another succession in the 1980s resulted in the sixth generation taking the helm with Ilan Oliva now overseeing all production and design.
Oliva has expanded its reach and recognition globally with a distinct signature style: intricate designs of stunning diamonds on invisible settings. Oliva embraces the slight variation in the natural stones, necessitating a production process that is highly mathematical and technically driven. As a result, Oliva ensures that each piece of its luxury jewelry is of prestige quality, high integrity, and extraordinary beauty – sure to make a lasting impression over a lifetime.
