“My commitment to service and making people happy has returned to me two-fold as most of my clients remain my friends to this day.” — Razi
Growing up in Israel, Razi Mizrahi lived close to the Israeli Diamond Exchange. The mastery of the building fascinated him, and he always had a yen to go inside. He decided to take a gemology course in that very building as well as learning the art of diamond cutting. He soon discovered that he loved the trade.
Razi’s focus then shifted to buying and selling diamonds. At 24 years old, he moved to the USA, focusing on dealing in wholesale diamonds up and down the West Coast. At this time Razi was living in Seattle, Washington and during his many trips north, he fell in love with the beautiful city of Vancouver. He made the big move up to Vancouver when he was 34 years old where he started “Summit Diamonds”, supplying diamonds to retail stores and manufacturers all over Canada.
Committed to the success of the diamond trade in Canada, Razi joined the Canadian Diamond Bourse when it opened in Toronto, sat on the board for several years and is a lifetime member. Since 1990, Razi has gained the trust of his customers because of the way he treats them. As a result, most of Summit’s business is repeat business due to word of mouth and referrals.
“I quickly found that helping friends and family purchase jewellery was so rewarding. They would leave my office smiling, and their happiness made me feel good. I decided then that as well as selling wholesale diamonds; I want to help my clients buy the jewellery they desire at the best value possible. “
