Golay Fils & Stahl

The firm was founded in 1837 by Auguste Golay Leresche and acquired by Mr Stahl at the turn of the century. From 1860 – 1930 Golay Fils & Stahl offered its jewellery creations to an international clientele through shops in both Geneva and Paris.


In 1997 the firm closed its outlets in order to focus on the design of exclusive jewellery and the buying and selling of diamonds, coloured stones, vintage, antique and estate jewels.
