A Passion that Grew into a Business


During the summer of 1945, just after the second world war had ended, the eldest Malakov brother had the privilege of becoming a master watchmaker under the direction of Europe’s most removed watchmakers. Through his tutelage, the Roman Malakov name was born, leading the brothers to deal in rare watches and gems. In the coming years, the Malakov brothers had then established themselves as experts of the “Russian cut” standard of diamond cutting.

The name Roman Malakov has now been synonymous with the tradition of jewelry and watch-making. Consisting of three brothers, the first generation of the Malakov family embarked on a journey that has now built a family business that would reach from the famous Central Asian Silk Road to Europe and beyond.
