Lance Shapiro, owner of Shapiro Diamonds, was born in Johannesburg, South Africa, home of DeBeers, the world's largest diamond producer. Close-knit family connections to the diamond industry, and a long family history of mining, lead him to the manufacturing and wholesale distribution of diamonds. Since immigrating to the United States in 1986, Lance has used his knowledge and elite connections in the diamond industry to excel in the US diamond market.
Lance Shapiro says: "I've always felt a profound responsibility to the women who wear the pieces I create. That means never ceasing to locate the most brilliant diamonds available in the market. I am committed to raising the bar every day in our design studio, so that when a woman wears her Shapiro Diamond piece, she (and everyone else) will know that she wears a truly beautiful work of art that sparkles with her every move".

It was the Shapiro Diamonds vision to create a diamond purchasing environment dedicated to setting and maintaining the highest possible standards of business ethics and professionalism in the diamond industry. Today, Shapiro Diamonds continues their dedication to the highest ethics, knowledge and consumer service.
