Daniel Christopher® is owned and operated by father and son Daniel and Christopher O’Farrell and has had a presence in London’s Hatton Garden since 1960.
Chris began cutting diamonds at the age of 16 as an apprentice of Star Diamonds and at the age of 21 he became a self employed diamond merchant within Hatton Garden.
In 1998 he was joined by his son Daniel, who had attained his Graduate Diamond Diploma at the Gemological Institute of America in Carlsbad, California and gained extensive experience as a Director for one of the UK’s leading ‘clicks and mortar’ jewellers.
Both Chris and Daniel are members of the London Diamond Bourse and as such Daniel Christopher® is bound by the highest standards of ethics and best practice in the industry. Daniel formerly sat on their Young Persons Committee, having been invited to strengthen engagement and champion new ideas within the UK diamond community.

Together they formed Daniel Christopher® in 2013.
