The Boghossian family has long made a name for itself in the jewelry industry. Over the past century, four generations of craftsmen have been designing and making fine jewelry.
The Boghossian Jewelry House was founded by two Boghossian brothers, Albert and Jean, immigrants from Lebanon. They fled the civil war that broke out in Switzerland in 1970 and opened their first office for trading precious stones in Antwerp. At the beginning of the 80s they moved to Geneva where, besides selling stones, they opened a small atelier and began to make jewelry.
In spite of long history, the trademark of the jewelry House was officially registered only in 2008. Bogh-Art was the name of the company for some time, but then it was renamed Boghossian to emphasize the continuity and value of the family heritage. Nowadays the fourth generation Boghossian is in business and keeps the secrets of craftsmanship.
Boghossian jewelry is the masterpiece of jewelry art in the world. The policy of the house is to preserve the identity and creative approach to the production of each item, preferring the observance of these principles to mass commercial production. This is expensive, elite and exclusive jewelry intended for a narrow circle of connoisseurs.
Products by Genevan masters are delivered to Arabian sheikhs and European monarchs. Hand craftsmanship and the use of rare and precious stones make Bogh-art jewelry collector’s items, which over time become even more expensive.
Bright individuality and brand recognition is based on the use of inlay technique, known since the times of Ancient India and Egypt. The technique involves inserting a single stone into another to form a single whole. The contrast of colors and structure of minerals allows each stone in a jewelry piece to reveal itself.
Perfected to perfection in Boghossian products, this technology seeks to do with as little metal as possible, replacing it with stones whenever possible. The invisibility of the fasteners creates a magnificent lightness, allowing to make unique and airy jewelry as if created by nature itself. Breaking the established traditions and conventions, the branded products can combine the incongruous: diamonds and nacre, expensive rubies and emeralds with semi-precious rocks.
Another peculiarity of Boghossian jewelry is the use of such metals as titanium, aluminum and carbon in addition to gold. Following the achievements of modern science, the masters of the house have managed to find application of composite materials based on titanium and fiberglass in their creations, which not only opened new possibilities for design, but also made the products a little bit more accessible.
Currently, the products of this brand are presented in only four boutiques. The second after Geneva was the jewelry salon in Brussels, opened in 2011. In 2013, Boghossian representative offices started working in London and Hong Kong.
