When Leon Tufenkjian found himself making fine jewellery in his attic in 1909, little did he know history was about to be made.

A young, hardworking man whose uncompromising nature and profound craftsmanship to create jewels is driven by a deep reverence, Leon Tufenkjian opened his first shop in the historical Beirut Gold Souk.

From its very first collections, his humble creations marked the beginning of a marvelous journey that welcomed his three sons. 

As young apprentices to their father, the Tufenkjian brothers learned the exacting art and science of precious jewellery making, and brought in their knowledge, independent spirit and experience to an unfeeling jewellery industry.

They understood why unique, quality jewellery is important to individuals in the first place: to celebrate special occasions, commemorate momentous accomplishments, honor the deepest relationships and capture the unspeakable beauty of life and those who matter most.

Thanks to LC Lauren Conrad, those small spaces in your life can get some real tender loving care, starting with wall hangings, you must think wall hangings carefully because a big painting in a very small room, it doesn’t make sense, and it takes up valuable real estate in what’s already a tiny room, so keep your eye out on small wall hangings that have a great impact.

A desk in a small space needs all the essentials it can get, but that doesn’t mean the basics have to be basic, find essentials that are visibly appealing to the eye, it’ll intensify the attraction of the small space in one’s house.

And even though your space is tiny as it is, use those tiny openings of space you have to fill up with decorative accessories that give your small space definition, calling it your own once and for all.

Le Vian is a family-owned jewelry company with a long history, dating from the 15th century.

As purveyors of fine jewelry, Le Vian had gained such a reputation that in 1746, Nadir Shah, one Persia’s most powerful rulers, chose them to safeguard the collection of jewels he had amassed — including the famous Kooh-i- Noor diamond. A rich history, across centuries. 

Le Vian is known for its LOVE of reinventing several categories of fine jewelry through unique combinations of colors of diamonds, gems and gold to create the various collections.

In an industry where copying is all too common, Le Vian insists on having every design start with an original idea, sketched out with pencil and paper.

This time and effort spent in new designs has led to an estimated 100,000 original designs created by Le Vian over the years.

Today, Le Vian is at the forefront of creating the most exquisite natural fancy-color diamond and gemstone jewelry.

It is Le Vian’s innovative use of colors that led the company to seek out the under-appreciated brown diamonds and popularize the deep-colored stones as Chocolate Diamonds®.

To ensure that jewelry buyers would be certain of getting diamonds of only the highest quality, Le Vian trademarked the Chocolate Diamonds® name.

This is just one example of Le Vian bringing jewelry to consumers that no other company has.

Ayesha Curry stepped out at the “BET Awards” on Sunday evening wearing the same Le Vian earrings Tiffany Haddish wore to the “MTV Movie & TV Awards” on June 15th, 2019, but who wore them better?

This is just one example of Le Vian bringing jewelry to consumers that no other company has.

Part of the company’s missions is to democratize luxury by making fine jewelry affordable.

One strategy it employs is to find a gem that is highly available during the peak of its production in a particular mine, while it is still under-priced.

Le Vian then incorporates these gems into beautiful pieces, preserving them as quality jewelry that’s more readily affordable due to the gems being less appreciated by collectors.

Later, as the mine runs out and the supply of the gems becomes limited, the value of the jewelry rises, giving early buyers a significant gain in value.
