Avakian is an independently owned Swiss brand on its third-generation of family ownership which dates back to the 1960s. It was back in 1981 that the founder and owner, Edmond Avakian, established the first official Avakian boutique in Geneva, making Switzerland the nodal point of this global luxury brand.
High quality finishes and obsessive attention to details allowed Avakian to grow rapidly, expanding its brand and establishing its presence worldwide with stores in New York, London, Moscow and Beverly Hills. Today, the company offers its high-level clients emotional and unique pieces of haute jewellery divided in three main collections, The Riviera, The Caché and The Links.
Edmond Avakian explains “Our Riviera, Caché and Links collections are really the essence of Avakian. The colourful combinations, attention to detail, cutting edge design, wearability, day-to-evening attributes, playfulness and versatility are central to these remarkable collections”, and continues “These pieces carry the fundamental DNA of Avakian; they are created in wonderfully unusual shapes with small hidden touches and details that make each incredibly beautiful and individual”.
Avakian jewels are regularly worn at red carpet events such as the Oscars, Golden Globes and the Cannes Film Festival by Hollywood stars including Dita Von Teese, Rosario Dawson and models such as Irina Shayk.
During the years, the Avakian’s brand also captivated many loyal clients seeking the extraordinary, from extravagant crowns worn at the weddings of Princes and Princesses to elaborate bespoke commissions for dignitaries and oligarchs.
