Selection Stones and Pearls

s t o n e s a n d P e a r l s 0 2 0 / B a s e l w o r l d S e l e c t i o n Abouchar S.A. was launched in 1979 and specialised in the sale of precious stones before merging with Diastar in 1988. It has acquired extensive expertise in stone- cutting for the watchmaking and high jewellery industry. At the start of the 90s, Abouchar took over Diastar completely. Since then, the company has been ­characterised by its selection of small ­calibrated stones such as rubies, sapphires and emeralds, as well as its vast selection of other stones which encompass virtually all colours of the rainbow. To this day, the company is one of the only businesses able to cut stones measuring a diameter of 0.5 mm with high precision accuracy. Abouchar also offers a wide range of centre stones weighing between 2 and 20 carats, both precious and semi-precious stones and ranging from Aquamarine blue to Zoisite. The company is renowned for its pairs of diamond “side stones”. More recently, Abouchar SA has entered the opal market, initially handling ­Australian opals and then in 2013 ­in­cluding Ethiopian opals thanks to a joint venture with Opalinda and its own lapidary based in Addis Ababa, the capital of Ethiopia. Abouchar already has an international presence through numerous trade shows in Hong Kong, Basel, Beijing, Singapore and Taipei and is making progress on the Chinese coloured stone market.
