Keeping Tradition Alive: The History of Le Vian Jewelry

Few brands can trace their name all the way back to the 15th century. With roots that run so deep, one can expect that a company will naturally have amassed a fair amount of knowledge about what makes a piece of jewelry truly great. Le Vian is living proof of this principle at play; with hundreds of years of artistry already behind them and thousands of iconic designs in their catalogue, there is little they have not seen or done while in operation.

A Treasure from Times Long Gone

Many designers will claim that their wares are fit for royalty - not many can support that assertion quite like Le Vian. Famous for making more than simple jewelry, among their infamous offerings include extravagant, one-of-a-kind works of art and corporate heirlooms that have withstood the test of time for generations.

Hailing all the way from Persia, Le Vian made their mark on the tastemakers at the time and the rich and powerful of their day, with praise dating as far back as 1746; in fact, the politicians they served found Le Vian so trustworthy that they sought their assistance in protecting the gold and jewels already in their possession like a bank. This honor has been something they’ve carried with them all this time - they take pride in their role as “guardians of the jewels”, their way of inviting their customers and suppliers into the family as more than mere business partners. To date, Le Vian has created over one hundred thousand completely original pieces of jewelry.

The Le Vian We Know and Love Today

Known widely for their daring use of unusual color combinations in stone and metal, including their highly-coveted chocolate and vanilla diamonds, Le Vian is constantly pushing the industry forward, always seeking a way to make the jewelry more beautiful and more accessible to collectors of all walks of life.

The Chocolatier collection features their signature chocolate diamonds prominently, showcasing their deep and rare richness. In a similar vein are the pieces to be found in the Strawberry Gold collection - luscious pendants cast in their brand-exclusive tinted strawberry gold, a subtle and delicious variation on classic rose gold, will be found in eager abundance here. Same goes for their Vanilla Gold label and the Creme Brulee line of fashion rings, bracelets, and earrings - irresistible vanilla diamonds bathe in the warmth of a number of proprietary shades of gold. A welcome reprieve from the norm.
