Avakian Bows in Beverly Hills

Widely known in Geneva and London for its colorful, stylish jewelry designs, Avakian recently opened its first U.S. store in the Regent Beverly Wilshire in Beverly Hills. Among its signature designs is the playful Joker motif featuring large gemstones in a setting reminiscent of a joker’s hat with dangling stones. Inspired by the cosmos, the Galaxy collection features gemstone orbs wrapped in pavé diamond and colorful stone settings.

The imaginative designs stem from a family collaboration that includes Edmond Avakian, his wife Taline, and children Corinne and Haig, who each play a pivotal role in the creation of the jewelry. Beyond its colorful jewelry, the family is also closely connected to its international clientele, many of whom are second-generation patrons. (310.228.2100, www.avakian.com)
