A. Link Co. was founded by Mr. Adolph Link, the son of a Viennese goldsmith, who came to New York City in 1894. Growing up on New York's lower east side, he met the youngest daughter of a rabbi, Anna, whom he fell in love with and married in 1912. During their marriage, Adolph apprenticed as a platinum jeweler with both Cartier and Van Cleef & Arpels. Because of his wife's diligent work, he was able to purchase raw gold and platinum to fabricate his own designs along with Fifth Avenue's greatest and most iconic craftsmen.
In the early 1940's, Adolph’s two sons, Seymour and Marvin, joined their father in his business. Seymour became a jeweler and Marvin apprenticed as a diamond cutter in Antwerp. It is from these two trades that A. Link received its reputation as a dealer in the finest made diamonds and as a manufacturer of traditional diamond jewelry. Having championed diamonds manufactured to uniform standards during times when this was not in vogue, A. link has consistently sold diamonds of the same make for well over a century. We call these stones "60/60’s,” a term that refers to the table and depth percentages combined with good and/or excellent symmetry and polishing.
Whether choosing diamonds for their own creations or for America’s most prestigious retailers, A. Link & Co. has set the standard. Regardless of color or clarity, each stone is fabricated to the same pristine specifications. A. Link’s designs reflect the tastes of America’s leading jewelers, confident in the knowledge that nearly a century of service has refined.
