Simon Yaghdjian launched Astranova Jewellery in Vancouver in 2010. Having already mastered the highest industry standards, Simon set out to bend and break conventional rules. As a result, the high jewellery designer subsequently carved a niche of his own.
His ornately-sculptured jewellery combines traditional motifs with contemporary trends. This platinum skillset is what truly defines the astonishing intersectionality of Astranova’s luxury jewellery.
Setting of gemstones and diamonds
Simon is not only a jewellery designer, but a dextrous setter. Each skillset is highly distinct and both are rarely performed by one person. As a setter, he meticulously mounts, secures and levels diamonds or gemstones to each jewellery item.
Bringing jewellery to life
Sitting on his workshop bench, he exists in a different world. He uses sharp tools, a hammer and even heat to bring each piece to life.
