A latecomer to the world of jewelry design, Gurhan only discovered his passion for work with pure gold when he was 40. Immediately attracted to its warmth and sensuality, he was drawn to the challenge of working with such a soft, heavy and expensive metal, despite the warnings of current designers. Over time, Gurhan educated himself on the earliest techniques of goldsmiths, dating back 7,000 years. By studying their examples, he learned their secrets, and wanted to share them with the world. It became his passion to perpetuate the legacy of these ancient craftsmen by designing distinctive pieces for today’s woman. Gurhan’s designs are driven by the combined need for purity and performance. Each piece must achieve beauty, strength, lightness, and affordability. With these standards driving his process, Gurhan is a unique designer who makes the highest quality jewelry accessible to the modern woman.
