    A family-owned firm of international jewellers with main showrooms in Geneva’s Rue du Rhone and London’s Old Bond Street, Chatila have been in the business since 1860.  Our tradition of showing new collections in Gstaad is more recent but has already established itself as a glittering part of the Season.  This winter, the collection includes breathtaking vintage pieces alongside our newest and hottest designs, such as the “Cleopatra” diamond bracelet in rose gold that was the talk of the last Masterpiece London art and jewellery exhibition.  From extraordinary and historic gemstones to the latest trends in wedding, special event and everyday jewellery, Chatila will be presenting their extensive range of holiday sparklers, never losing sight of the confidentiality issues and the competitive values which their heritage as a family firm guarantees the client. Delectable and unique, a jewel from this year’s Chatila collection is a shrewd investment in timeless beauty.
