8 IS GREAT! KIRK KARA WINS BEST BRIDAL DESIGN IN JCK JEWELERS’ CHOICE AWARDS FOR EIGTH CONSECUTIVE YEAR

24.04.2015

KIRK KARA IS THE ONLY JEWELRY DESIGNER EVER TO WIN EIGHT YEARS IN A ROW IN A BRIDAL CATEGORY SINCE THE INCEPTION OF THE JEWELERS’ CHOICE AWARDS IN 2008.

Kirk Kara has made history as the only jewelry designer to win first place for eight straight years in the JCK Jewelers’ Choice Awards!  The jewelers have spoken, and the votes are in: two stunning designs from Kirk Kara’s Pirouetta collection have taken top prizes in the category of Best Bridal Design in 2015.

First place winner in the Best Bridal Design – $5,001 – $10,000 category: an elegant rose gold split shank engagement ring and wedding band set from the Pirouetta collection. It features 3/8 ct. t.w. diamonds. The signature handcrafted details include milgrain edging and filigree. The center 1.0 ct. round stone is a customized option.

The fabled story of Kirk Kara spans multiple continents and more than a century. Since 1890, this astonishingly talented family of artists and artisans has designed and handcrafted beautiful rings and fine jewelry. Kirk Kara pieces are all original designs inspired by the past and reimagined for the present. Each detail is drawn from romantic patterns found in nature, architecture, and art, brought to life in the finest platinum, gold, gemstones, and, of course, diamonds. This rare talent for creating legendary pieces of jewelry has been passed down through four generations from fathers to sons — and now, for the first time in the company’s history, to two daughters, Angela and Grace, both committed to continuing the brand’s gracious, generous spirit and relentless pursuit of perfection.

AJA is proud to count the Karaguezians among our most respected jewelers, and we congratulate you on your eight consecutive win this year!

Jennifer Lopez kicked off the FIFA World Cup 2014 in style on Thursday, June 12, 2014, as she performed at the opening ceremony in Sao Paulo, Brazil.

The enchanting singer showed off her incredible figure in a sparkling leotard, bedazzled in only YEPREM jewels, marking the brand’s 50th anniversary as she sang the official FIFA song.

Over the past two months YEPREM has taken Hollywood by storm. Adorned by Rihanna at the 2014 Met Gala and flaunted by Madonna camouflaging her pinky, only to be followed by Katy Perry glittering the same design for the V Magazine photo-shoot. Following by Miranda Lambert elegantly embellished her ears and fingers at the CMT awards 2014.

John, Ludvig and Virna Chakardemian of Yeprem Jewellery are one of the most prominent AJA members. YEPREM’S Khachkar bracelets were a hit at Yerevan Show 2013. The popularity of the bracelets has been increasing worldwide as they are not only unique and meticulously crafted, but most of the proceeds from the sale help support Armenian students.
