    Gurhan: Inspired by the discovery of pure gold, Gurhan began studying the techniques used by ancient goldsmiths and created his first jewelry pieces in 1994. During the mid-90’s, Gurhan’s creations were discovered in a shop in Turkey by Fiona Tilley, a New York-based investment banker who soon became his business partner. In 1997, Gurhan launched his line in the United States and it was a resounding success. Gurhan is internationally renowned for pioneering the revival of pure 24 karat gold jewelry and for changing the landscape of jewelry design with award-winning creations. Today, Gurhan has also employed the use of pure platinum and pure silver and continues to create new and innovative jewelry lines. It is the mission of Gurhan to offer the world jewelry that embodies a life worth living elevating, products above their mere materialistic composition, and connecting them to the experience and celebration of full and rich life. For Gurhan, a life worth living is a life lived with products that mean something personal and that embody that life themselves.
