Originally learning his craft in a small diamond-setting workshop in the heart of Beirut, Lebanon, to now designing and manufacturing from offices in Los Angeles, California, Supreme Jewelry founder and designer Jirair Kiladjian aims for and achieves perfecetion in each of his designs. Dedicated to the details and exemplary craftsmanship, Supreme Jewelry's continuous growth over the last eighteen years is a tribute to the aesthetic artistry and unparalleled quality of its founder.
What formally began in 1989 truly started in Kiladjian's birthplace of Beirut as he learned the family business of diamonds. After gaining valuable work experience there, and later in both Europe and Canada, he began his own jewelry line in 1984.
To capitalize on his training in the art of diamond setting, Kiladjian's first designs were mainly baguette-set pieces- a major trend in the jewelry world at the time. "There was a very big demand for French-influenced jewelry, such as baguette-set stones, at the time, so that is how the company began to be recognized," Kiladjian says.
Supreme Jewelry was formally founded when Kiladjian set about building a successful business solely on reputation. "Anyone who worked with us then, or now, knows what they can expect of Supreme: fine work, with the highest quality possible."
Since then, the company has grown tremendously, and is now known for its signature "Jirair Collection" that includes fashion and bridal pieces. Its U.S. sales, mainly high-end independent retailers, are a testament to the uncompromising quality and design. Each deisng in the Supreme collection is created to stand alone as a unique piece of art.
Using only the finest diamonds, gold, platinum, and precious gemstones, Kiladjian creates artistic masterpieces with each bracelet, necklace, earring and ring. Spectacular micro-pave and delicate filigree are hallmarks of the line, with price points ranging from $400-$15,000, and one-of-a-kind pieces with the imagination as the only limit.
