From London to Geneva, you are spoilt for choice when it comes to fabulously unique jewellery. But one name that really stands out is Boghossian.

For six generations, the Boghossian family has been handling precious stones and passing down from generation to generation a knowledge and a confidence in working with highly prized coloured gemstones and diamonds. After many years of making privately commissioned jewels, the family decided to found their own brand in 2008. “We put a lot of thought into how we were going to make a difference in the world of jewellery and decided to take it into uncharted territory,” explains CEO Albert Boghossian. “We wanted to be recognised for bringing something new in terms of both design and craftsmanship.”

“We are a family with roots in the Middle East and we wanted this to be reflected in our style, but also to acknowledge our European side, as well as the great jewellery masters of the past,” adds Albert Boghossian. The combination is a heady opulence tempered with fluid lines, all possible thanks to a rigorous attention to detail.

The Boghossian family continue to dare to be bold with their creations, taking fine jewellery design to new realms.

At the heart of the distinctive look of Boghossian jewellery are two techniques that it has very much made its own. The first is the Art of Inlay - first used by the ancient Egyptians - which Boghossian has refined and adapted to use with precious stones, with one stone set into the other to create an arresting and mesmerising effect. This then evolved into a second technique known as ‘kissing diamonds’, where two stones appear to melt into one another.

Boghossian’s latest collection of unique jewellery is the fabulously expressive Ballet Oriental, designed by creative director Edmond Chin, who is at ease working with the most precious stones. In his designs, diamonds, rubies and even hugely valuable natural pearls move with a lightness that belies their value. Edmond Chin explains: “The Boghossian family has its own powerful aesthetic. I wanted to acknowledge that so I thought of dance, which I think is one of the most powerfully expressive art forms. We fused aspects from Ballet and the Orient in these jewels.”

Only a family like the Boghossians, which has such experience with precious stones, can dare to be so bold and take fine jewellery design into new realms.

Help us make the future bright

Since founding The Jewellery Editor in 2010, we have grown our digital magazine to be the number one global source of information and inspiration for fine jewellery and luxury watches.

3,500 articles, 150 videos and a reach of over 2 million per month on social media later, we have offered unparalleled and highly respected coverage of our sector. However, despite our editorial success, we are financially struggling as an independent publisher.

Entirely funded, owned and run by Christine and Maria in London, we are now looking to sell The Jewellery Editor so that it can continue to grow in the hands of a different owner. As e-commerce becomes a priority in our industry, we believe there is huge potential for engaging editorial content and are seeking a buyer who shares our values and passion so that under their guidance we can give a bright future to the platform.

We can’t commit to financing the website for much longer so if we don’t manage to initiate any meaningful conversations in the next few weeks, the website will be frozen on 1st April 2018. If and when we find a suitable partner we will revive it and take it to the next stage.

If you are interested to discuss the above, please contact [email protected]

Alternatively, if you are willing to help, you can donate so that in the meantime, we can continue to publish more interesting content.
