(Love's Grandfather) Founder of Lekhraj and Sons Jewelers in Cairo, Egypt.
Love’s Father outside his Maharajas Jewelry Store in Kingston, Jamaica.
Although the Mahtani family has been in the Jewelry/Diamond business for several generations, hereon you will see a glimpse of their history specifically with regards to their operation in St. Maarten/St.Martin. This is the year the Mahtani’s have their first retail operation on St. Maarten. While the store is still under construction in the first days of having the location, Milan Mahtani is already behind the counters.
The Mahtani’s established hundred of relationships with very special people over the years…some of those relationships include 4 generations of families simultaneously shopping with the Mahtani family…and it continues today!
Collaboration with the Breguet family and the Mahtani family.
Behind every successful businessman, there’s a strong woman…this image exemplifies the old-fashioned way that family businesses operate, where the value of a handshake is all that is needed in longstanding relationships like the one that the Mahtani Family of Jewels by Love shares with the Stern Family of Patek Philippe.
The relationship between Owner of Ulysse Nardin, Rolf Schnyder and the Mahtani Family was established.
Learning from the master, himself… IWC’s genius watchmaker, the legendary Kurt Klaus.
Look at your watch…Is it “Swiss Made”? If it is, there’s a good chance it only exists because of the man in the middle of this photo. This is the man who is said to be responsible for saving the Swiss Watchmaking industry single-handedly.
And then the next generation joins… A BIG YEAR - Rish Mahtani Graduated from Pace University in New York City and joins the family business full-time in St. Maarten. In the same year Thierry Stern takes over the Patek Philippe torch from his legendary father, Philippe Stern.
Another mind-blowing lesson from one of the worlds most legendary watchmakers; Ludwig Oechslin, mastermind of high-complications at Ulysse Nardin. Learning from the very best so that we can pass on the knowledge of the fine art of watchmaking to our clients.
Its more than just business… it’s friendship!
