Gurhan is credited with pioneering the reintroduction of 24K gold into the modern world of designer jewelry. Growing up in Turkey, becoming a jeweler was far from the thoughts and dreams of a young Gurhan Orhan. Instead, always the “discoverer,” Gurhan pursued a variety of eclectic interests which included building hi-fi equipment, making watches in Switzerland and even operating a rock bar in 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 (still carried in his wallet today!) that Gurhan envisioned a unique brand of jewelry transcending simple design; a brand connecting his customer with the values of ancient cultures. Gurhan is a favorite among fashion trendsetters around the world and celebrities including Angelina Jolie, Sandra Bullock, Jennifer Lopez and others.
