The Taché Story

For the love of diamonds

The Company

Taché was built on our love of diamonds, a love we’ve been pursuing since 1957. We’re headquartered in Antwerp, Belgium, but our passion for these captivating gems takes us all over the world. More than 1500 people, from polishers to traders, from researchers to engineers, make up our group, and despite our varied roles, we all work under the spell that diamonds cast.
As an industry leader, we deal with diamonds from rough sourcing all the way through to finish. Over the years, we’ve developed a reputation for meticulous quality control and a reliability of supply that is rock solid. In addition to the diamonds themselves, we also offer our customers services like rough diamond production financing, globe-spanning distribution and insightful market consultancy.

We’re proud to be one of De Beer’s oldest sightholders and one of Alrosa’s first long-term contract holders. Our commitment and passion has made us the preferred partner for many other well-known names as well.

Strategy

Befitting a stone formed over millennia, we take a long-term approach to growth.

At Taché, we don’t seek growth for its own sake. To us, if bigger doesn’t enable better, it’s simply not worth pursuing.

So we intend to grow in two main ways: a) by acquiring companies that will provide us with a competitive edge and enable us to grow and evolve our position in the marketplace;
And b) by providing innovative services that our clients desire – or don’t yet know of their existence in the marketplace.

Pushing boundaries is in our DNA.
