Since March is Women's History Month, I wanted to spend some time highlighting some of our talented women jewelry designers.
Gumuchian lives up to their motto designed by women for women. Owned and operated with meticulous attention to quality by Anita Gumuchian and daughters Myriam and Patricia, this boutique company is proud to do it all, from the selection of brilliant diamonds through their family-run offices in Antwerp, to the actual manufacturing in the heart of New York. These three women design every piece of their sparkling collections with an intuitive feel for what modern women of style crave today. The Gumuchian family has been synonymous with quality diamonds for five generations but these women bring a whole new world of expertise, passion and innovation to the art of jewelry design.
