MEET SIMON

“Having a personal jeweller like Simon means you will always leave with a smile knowing that you are in good hands and have received honest Professional service by an expert.”

– Sean M.

I’m Simon Yaghdijan, the face behind Astranova Jewellery. I made my start in the custom jewelry trade here in Vancouver apprenticing under the watchful eye of a master stone setter. That was over fifteen years ago and I consider myself lucky to have learned the traditional European fashion, or more specifically, the Pavee (French) setting. These skills served me well and allowed me to work with some very talented builders over the years. Setting for so many different goldsmiths with their unique styles and perspectives was not only a pleasure but also an invaluable experience.

For the last 8 years we have been making our own mark with custom jewellery for a long list of private clients. For me, it’s the thrill of realizing the finished product that is most satisfying. Nothing makes me happier than presenting what we’ve made to clients and witnessing that spectacular reaction. Somehow I’m still surprised when they are more thrilled than I am!

Astranova Jewellery is the culmination of my love for crafting unique jewellery, taking on new challenges and creating meaningful relationships.
