— Yossi Harari
Yossi Harari’s fascination with jewelry began early when at the tender age of eight announced to his parents that he would be “the family jeweler!” The owner and founder of a now world-eminent handcrafted, fine 24-Karat gold jewelry brand, Harari had a wonderful childhood upbringing being raised in Istanbul, Israel, and Switzerland. Growing up, he was fortunate to be surrounded by his grandfather’s extensive collection of art and antiques and ancient artifacts. His senses were constantly entertained and by the age of eleven, he surprised his mother by redesigning one of her diamond rings — the first jewelry item he made. It was the beginning of his artistic endeavor of creativity and design from which he has never strayed.
Yossi received degrees in Gemology and Jewelry design from the Gemological Institute of America in Los Angeles, followed by a History of Arts degree from Tel Aviv University. Honing his skills in the U.S. and Israel, Harari opened a couture jewelry atelier in Istanbul in 1991 where he revived the long-forgotten art of 24K goldsmithing.
Today, Harari is one of the most famed, trendsetting craftsmen whose 24k gold pieces grace the shelves of prestigious retailers, such as Bergdorf Goodman and Neiman Marcus, and adorn celebrity clients. In 2007, 2009, and again in 2014, Harari was awarded the Couture Design Award — ‘The Oscars’ of the jewelry industry — that recognizes excellence in jewelry and timepiece design. He attributes the success of his nearly 26-year old business to “a Love for Art.”
Yossi Harari is renowned for his innate understanding of modern women’s desire to be adorned in luxurious, chic, bohemian, yet cutting-edge couture jewels — embellished with diamonds or precious-stones — that can be worn from day to night and create an iconic, and fashion-forward look.
