In 1984, Daniel founded a jewelry manufacturing and wholesale business in Minnesota. Over the next two decades, Daniel built the business into a very successful venture, supplying the Midwest with beautiful jewelry. Daniel’s business became synonymous with trust, quality and value. He loves to say, “jewelry is the only luxury item that retains its beauty and value.”
In June of 2016 at one of the largest jewelry shows of the year, Daniel met up with Leo, his son in the watch industry, to discuss business. Over dinner, Daniel told Leo how he was looking for a new business model because traditional retail was shifting online. Leo suggested they should join forces and offer customers jewelry and watches, thus the father son partnership developed and LeoDaniels was born!
In early 2017, Daniel called Leo to inform him that his diamond vendor, Theo, was looking for a way into the e-commerce market. Realizing this would enable LeoDaniels to offer diamonds and diamond jewelry at unparalleled discounts they seized the opportunity and added a third partner, Theo.
Theo began his career as a diamond cutter in the early 60s, at the age of 14. Despite his young age, he amazed his father and his boss and mastered the art of diamond cutting very early on, making him a top employee. By 1976, Theo decided his time had come and started his own diamond manufacturing business, with the help of his old boss. Over the last 50+ years, Theo has become known as an expert in the field of diamond manufacturing and knows how to assess the potential and value of rough diamonds like few other in the world. Theo is considered one of the preeminent experts in the Diamond Exchange and sits on the Bursa Board of Directors.
This partnership not only gives LeoDaniels customers access to diamonds at a fraction of the cost of its competitors, but also unique access to over 50 years of diamond manufacturing experience. From the initial purchase of the rough stones and to the meticulous process of assessment and cutting into polished diamonds of the highest craftsmanship, Theo’s expertise brings the manufacturer directly to the customer. His experience combined with Daniel’s ability to design and carefully curate stones and Leo’s e-commerce expertise make a winning combination.
When asked why Theo’s name is not part of the website, Theo always says “TheoLeoDaniels just sounds ridiculous.”
