About Gurhan Jewelry
Gurhan Jewelry was created by Gurhan Orhanwho learned how to fabricate his own works at a young age. Growing up, becoming a designer was far from his thoughts and dreams. Instead, always the discoverer, Gurhan pursued a variety of eclectic interests which included building hi-fi equipment, making watches in Switzerland and operating a rock bar in his home country of Turkey. It was only when he held a piece of 24K gold that his passion for jewelry was born. It was in this sheet of shimmering metal that Gurhan envisioned a unique brand of jewelry transcending simple design; a brand connecting his customer with the values of ancient cultures.
Original and Truly Hand Made
Gurhan is one of the only major jewelry brands that hand crafts every piece in its own company workshop. Working in sterling silver, 24K gold and other high karat metals, every piece is treated with individual care and attention. Like so many of his clients, Gurhan has always believed in the value of hand-made craftsmanship and continues to offer One-of-a-Kinds and custom designs.
A Maverick of Technique & Design
Often referred to as a maverick, Gurhan defied the common wisdom advising him against working in 24K gold. It’s too soft, he was told. It’s too heavy and customers will never buy it, he heard time and time again. But Gurhan disagreed and studied the ancient craftsmen who were responsible for producing some of the world’s most magnificent and precious creations. By incorporating their techniques, Gurhan developed his own unique method of design and began producing the designs for which he is now so well known.
