Gurhan’s handcrafted silver and high-karat gold jewelry is both distinctive and fashionable, created for the woman who desires an alternative to traditional style. Designer and goldsmith Orhan Gurhan pioneered the introduction of pure 24-karat gold jewelry into the realm of contemporary jewelry design almost 20 years ago, after studying the techniques of ancient craftsmen and creating pieces himself. His jewelry is steeped in history but exudes a modern twist. One-of-a-kind jewels are set with ancient artifacts, coins, unusual gemstones and rose-cut diamonds. His sterling pieces are lighter and more edgy. Gurhan’s unique, handcrafted aesthetic moves fine jewelry from esoterically precious and rarified into the world of contemporary fashion and style.
