Why do these stars (and many others) love Vahan so much?  Why do Vahan's pieces show up constantly in the pages of fashion magazines and during live interviews for major media awards shows?  Celebrities know how important their image is, and they know they can enhance their appeal by wearing Vahan.  Vahan jewelry pieces are some of the most eye-catching and elegant designs on the market today. When you wear them for the first time, you’ll soon discover just how much attention these exquisite pieces attract, as both longtime friends and people you’ve just met “ooh” and “aah” over your bracelet, necklace, or earrings. They’ll remark on how beautiful your pieces are, and they’ll think you’re pulling their legs when you tell them how little you paid for jewelry that looks like it cost hundreds more.


The sheer beauty isn't the only factor in Vahan jewelry's popularity.  Another reason that Vahan is so remarkably popular is its versatility.  Simply put, even though Vahan pieces are dazzling, they work for pretty much any occasion, no matter what you're wearing.

Unlike many jewelry firms, Vahan isn't a middleman or broker; they don't simply purchase some jewelry from overseas and put their name on it.  Vahan manufactures its jewelry pieces itself, and its jewelry is made using techniques developed from a patented process. You'll find plenty of lovely rings, earrings, and necklaces in the Vahan collection, and they're very popular, but Vahan's bracelets are in a class by themselves, and they are truly the company's hallmark pieces. You've seen them on the arms of celebrities, and page after page of fashion magazine layouts. Once you've seen a bracelet by Vahan, you'll never forget it!


And don't worry about Vahan jewelry being flimsy, falling apart, or wearing out.  Durability is another Vahan hallmark - you can buy Vahan with confidence because every piece should give you a lifetime of pleasure and delight.  Thousands of women have been wearing the same Vahan necklace, bracelet, or earrings for decades, and they still get admiring remarks from people about how beautiful they look.

The Company

The Vahan jewelry company is one of the best-known and most respected brands in the industry. And, although it was officially founded in 1968, Vahan has a long and storied history going way back to the late 1800’s, and half the world away,  to the City of Lights - Paris, France.  That’s when and a man named Manasse Der Calousdian founded a jewelry company that focused on providing luxury jewelry pieces of the highest quality for people of means. 

The company prospered, and in the 1930’s, Manasse handed the business over to his son, Arsene Der Calousdian, who continued its tradition of excellence, maintaining and expanding the company’s reputation as one of Europe’s finest jewelry manufacturers.  Arsene eventually had his son, Sacha Der Calousdian, and Sacha was fascinated with the world of jewelry manufacturing, and proud of the company that his father and grandfather had built. 

With a brilliant mind, a burning curiosity, and a desire to excel, Sacha Der Calousdian was born to be a jewelry designer, and he studied the field at La Chambre Syndicale de la Bijouterie, one of the finest jewelry design schools in all of Europe.  He then spent some twenty years perfecting his craft, and in 1968 he founded the Alwand Vahan Jewelry company (now known simply as Vahan).  With Sacha’s natural talent, first-class education, and years of experience, the new company was an immediate success.  In addition to being worn by some of the most famous and admired women in the world, Vahan’s jewelry has been sold at some of America’s most exclusive retailers, such as Bloomingdale’s and Neiman Marcus.

Here’s another reason Vahan jewelry is so beautiful - Sacha Der Calousdian says that he designs jewelry as if he were designing a set for a motion picture, and he wants every single woman who wears one of his pieces to look like a movie star.  Look around our website, and explore all of our Vahan pieces, and we think you’ll agree that he achieves this goal.  No matter if you’re looking for earrings, a bracelet, a ring, or a necklace, you’ll find many dazzling pieces to choose from.
