Could all the ladies who like exotic jewelry please raise their hands? Jack Vartanian, the creative mind behind some of the most extraordinary pieces around, is the man for you.
Vartanian gained an intimate knowledge of the tools of his trade when he worked, as a young man, for his family’s precious stones business.
In his eponymous jewelry line, he aims to combine classic craftsmanship with cutting edge (please excuse the pun) design—to make glamorous accessories that can be worn, Los Angeles-style, with jeans. It’s no wonder, then, that Vartanian’s work has had such success in Hollywood, and that Cameron Diaz and Kate Hudson number among his ever-growing rooster of celebrity clients.
A visit to his boutique is also a good excuse to pass through the ritzy Shopping Center Iguatemi, home to the likes of Dolce & Gabbana and Emporio Armani.
