You only live once, but if you do it right, once is enough.

Victor Velyan began his journey in the jewelry industry in 1984 as a diamond setter and 2 years later became a jeweler’s apprentice. Over time and with uncompromised dedication, Velyan’s knowledge of the industry grew, as did his desire to develop and share his vision with others. In 1995, with a decade of experience under his belt, Victor realized his dream by opening his manufacturing shop, Victor-Christy in Los Angeles, California. The studio allowed Velyan freedom and flexibility to produce pieces for some of the industry’s most significant designers. Though his manufacturing and design for others proved to be undeniably successful, winning over 27 awards under other designers’ names, his own creations were yet to be fully expressed.
