When our machines were still craftsmen … It is sixty years ago now that the first machines laid the cornerstone of industrialization at Stephan, although they were in fact still hand-operated by our employees. Further developing these machines took us to the next step, opening up new markets and an opportunity to manufacture at a higher level, since we were able to turn out greater quantities in a shorter time. The pursuit of ever greater perfection and efficiency, and the quest for a stone that would be industrially made yet still perfect, kept driving us onward. Today, our gemstone processing machines are coupled with state-of-the-art computer technology.


Today we can enhance and individualize every gemstone for our customers, creating imaginative shapes through precision drilling, laser engraving, or ultrasonic processing. And we can produce this individualization in small series or large quantities, exactly as needed.
