Designer Spotlight: Hollywood Fave Arman Sarkisyan Mixes Old-World Technique With Modern Flair

LA Digital
It is no surprise that Arman Sarkisyan has become one of the world’s most renowned jewelry designers; artistry runs in his blood. From a young age, Arman watched in awe as his father, a master jeweler in Armenia and Russia with a career spanning 53 years, meticulously honed his craft. Arman became fascinated with the concept of jewelry as wearable art—a tangible expression of one’s imagination, influence, and inspiration. Under the tutelage of his father, he has been creating in this medium for almost 30 years. 

Arman’s jewelry brilliantly juxtaposes old-world technique and modern aesthetic. Working in rich 22kt gold, oxidized silver, diamonds and bright gemstones, Arman uses methods from a bygone era, like hand-engraving, to achieve a level of intricacy and beauty that is rarely seen in today’s craftsmanship. Each piece of Arman’s jewelry is hand-fabricated in Los Angeles, from concept to completion. This couture approach to jewelry sets Arman apart from other designers. From one-of-a-kind masterpieces to everyday wardrobe essentials, there is an emotional element present in each and every one of his pieces. They truly are modern heirlooms.

Arman Sarkisyan unveiled his eponymous line in 2004 to outstanding praise and numerous accolades. In just three years, from 2009-2011, Arman won four prestigious Town & Country Couture Design Awards: Best of Colored Gemstones, Best of Show: Editor’s Choice, Best of Silver, and, perhaps most telling, Best in Show: People’s Choice. Today Arman enjoys a strong following and is adored by visionaries, tastemakers and Hollywood’s elite.
