Kelaty Trading Co.

Kelaty Trading Co. has a rich history spanning four generations. We specialize in white diamonds consistently and strictly sorted for nice cuts, FG colors, vs1 to si2 clarities, 0.8mm (.0025ct) to 4.1mm (.28ct).

​While melee diamonds are our specialty, our ability to source goods ​to meet customer demand extends ​​beyond ​our specialty, to include​ items such as princess cuts, other fancy shapes, and black diamonds.

​Kelaty Trading​ was headed by Issy Kelaty for ​more than​ 40 years in London​.  Issy later moved the company from London to New York. Unfortunately 6 years ago, Issy unexpectedly passed away. ​ Since then, Kelaty Trading has continued to be a family owned and operated company, with sons ​Ben​ and Eddie continuing to work side by side with their mother Natalie.

​Connect with Ben Kelaty on JHJ for all your melee diamond needs, or other diamond sourcing requests.​
