Characteristics of Le Vian Jewelry
No other jewelry designer comes close to matching Le Vian’s rich heritage in the jewelry business. For centuries Le Vian has handled the treasures of the world, including the prized jewels of royals and rulers like the 186 carat Kooh-i-Noor Diamond originally belonging to the Rajah of Malwa, a 40-pound natural turquoise elephant for 18th century Persian ruler Nadir Shah, the "Ziba-Ziba!" necklace, and the Fiesta Bowl Tiara. Today, they continue to break new ground by producing new and exciting collections of jewelry for collectors and aficionados all over the world.
Popular Le Vian Collections
After Mr. A. LeVian, also known as the "King of Turquoise" and the "King of Tanzanite," founded the company in the 1950's, Le Vian have remained at the top of the industry with their exquisite designs, exceptional techniques like "invisible settings," and unique pieces, like the ones featuring dazzling chocolate diamonds that can only be found in Le Vian pieces. These stones must meet very strict standards in order to have the privilege of becoming one of the designer’s signature chocolate diamonds. With their trademarked rich color and SI or higher clarity, pieces that feature these stones are some of the most highly sought after on the market.
Additional Le Vian Collections
Other popular trademarked collections Le Vian has created are the Neopolitan Opal, whose remarkable iridescence plays mouthwateringly against the chocolate diamonds, and Strawberry Gold, which can only be cultivated from the Yahwah mine in Ethiopia. Le Vian’s Strawberry Gold line offers a very feminine touch to any piece with its warm strawberry color in a rose gold alloy. Another loved collection is Passion Ruby, with its high chromium content, that gives the gems a stronger, more intense red than the typical rubies used by other jewelry designers.
