Sevan Biçaçki: Lord of the Rings


Sevan is BY FAR my favourite jewelry designer!!! It's the kind of jewelry kings,queens,sheiks and arabian princesses would wear. His designs just breath the spirit of Istanbul. You can see the most beautiful temples and palaces in it. My favourite is the big blue one coverd with the little mosaic stones and several temples within the large one. AMAZING. Also this one is a real eyecatcher: 
More about Sevan:
Exotic spice bazaars, majestic mosques, fairy tale like minarets and imposing Sultans. Istanbul, the only city in the world which has reigned as capital of three different empires, is without a doubt the greatest muse for the man known in the fine jewelry industry as “Lord of the Rings.”
Born and raised in Turkey, one of a kind jewelry designer Sevan has been a bench jeweler for the last twenty years—and at the age of 36, Sevan’s creations are profound and unique. Each one is handcrafted from 24K, 18K yellow and rose gold, sterling silver with uniquely cut gemstones and antique cut diamonds that are inspired by the Blue Mosque from 17th century, the 6th century Hagia Sophia Church, the Topkapi Palace from 15th century and many childhood memories.

Sevan Bicakci is the recipient of a string of prestigious awards, including the Tanzanite Foundation Award for Best Independent Designer of 2007. Sevan has also won the

Town & Country Couture Awards over the last three years including the 2008 Town & Country Couture Gemstone Award.

Some of Sevan’s well-known wearers and collectors include Brooke Shields, Catherine Zeta Jones, Elizabeth Hurley, Liv Tyler, Kim Raver, Halle Berry, Mariah Carey, Celine Dion, Angie Harmon, Michelle Monaghan, Mary Kate and Ashley Olsen, Tory Burch.

DUTCH: Mam was degene die Sevan voort eerst ontdekte. Toen ze terugkwam van Istanbul en later Marrakech en Egypte, miste ze enorm de sfeer en de pracht van het Midden-Oosten. Toen ze de ringen van Sevan hier in België voort eerst zag, werd ze helemaal verliefd, vnl op 1 ring, die ze paar jaar later onverwacht van papa kreeg. De ring lijkt het meest op de eerste rechts naast de foto van sevan, maar dan met paarse edelsteen en hij overtreft alle ringen die ik al ooit zag. Van elke ring bestaat er maar 1. Als ze nog eens nr Istanbul gaat, mag ik mee en bezoeken we Sevan in zijn atelier :) wooh!
