Learning Their Secrets

Gurhan first discovered his passion for jewelry when he was 40 years old, when he first touched a piece of pure 24-karat gold. Gurhan was drawn by the warmth and sensuality that only comes from pure gold. From then on Gurhan has had a deep curiosity for the history of the valuable metal.

Using ancient techniques dating back to the Byzantine era 7,000 years ago, Gurhan is able to create jewelry in what others would deem too soft of metal for jewelry. By studying these ancient techniques, he learned their secrets, it became his passion to perpetuate and perfect the legacy of these ancient craftsmen through distinctive designs for today's woman.
