HABIB’s humble beginnings date back to 1958 when our first shop was set up in Penang on the bustling Pitt Street, then known as "Jewelers' Corner", by our founder Datuk Haji Habib Mohamed Abdul Latif. The little shop still stands today as a nostalgic reminder of how the journey of HABIB began.
Today we are proud to be one of the country’s premier jewelers; a multi-award winning brand that appeals to different walks of life.
With a reputation for quality and world-class designs, we believe in valuing tradition even as we embrace the contemporary. Enhancing value for the customer is a priority for us, and as a result, we have earned the trust of customers near and far.
It should come as no surprise that HABIB’s core values, which began in the early days of the founder, still resonate today. The core values touch the lives of our management and employees alike, professionally and personally, creating an extended HABIB family that takes pride in providing warm, personalized service to a wide spectrum of customers.
HABIB's clientele is diverse in background and geographic location, ranging from Malaysia and other parts of Asia including Dubai, Indonesia, Brunei, Singapore, and Hong Kong to the US and Europe.
With more than 55 years of rich history, we are committed to scaling new heights for our customers. To satisfy our customers’ growing desire for diamonds, we have brought the world's most perfectly cut stone from the US called Hearts On Fire, into our showrooms. In 2011, the HABIB Group set the market ablaze with the world-famous, hand-finished charm jewellery by Pandora from Denmark. We didn’t stop there. 2014 is the year that HABIB became the sole distributor of the funky, affordable luxury watch brand Ice-Watch from Belgium. The HABIB Group has over the years also entered into several local ventures, namely Chantique, Islamic pawnbroking Ar Rahnu and Habib Hotel.
