When it comes to style and high fashion, everyone in the jewelry industry is working to make a name for themselves. However, there are a few companies that have been around for centuries, much like VAHAN. Since its inception, the designs at VAHAN have been hand-drawn and produced in the United States. Passed down from three generations of master jewelers, this family-owned company prides itself on high-quality bracelets and rings that are designed to last. Peter & Co. Jewelers carry a selection of VAHAN designs, so you can get Parisian high fashion in and around Avon, Ohio.
VAHAN: Then and Now
In the 1880s, Manasse Der Calousdian opened a small jewelry shop in Paris, France, which he passed onto his son, Arsene Der Calousdian, in the 1930s. Then, in 1968, Arsene passed the family business down to his son, Sacha Der Calousdian, and from here VAHAN was born. Sacha studied at a premier jewelry design school, and after spending 20 years designing jewelry for companies like Cartier and Hermès, he took over the Parisian storefront and gave it a new name: Alwand Vahan. Every piece of jewelry that came from this store began with a hand-drawn sketch in a small Manhattan studio, with the design and production process happening right here in the United States.
Today, Sacha and his wife Natalie continue to further the family’s tradition, and when their son Greg joined the family business in 2009, they did not doubt that the family legacy would live on. After graduating college, Greg spent years working for Brooks Brothers, Louis Vuitton, and Mark Jacobs, and when he came back to work for his father, he brought with him an expertise in digital media.
Peter & Co. Jewelers is proud to carry VAHAN jewelry, and we’re excited to share with you a few of the designs we’re fortunate enough to carry in our store:
The body of the ring is sterling silver which draws attention to the 14k yellow gold head, which draws further attention thanks to the peerless diamonds that point inwards to the center of the ring.
