In ancient times, the earliest goldsmiths used grains to fill their jewelry to give it shape and form. Inspired by this technique, Gurhan designed the Olive Collection with olive-shaped beads that combine with stones such as black spinel, apatite, amazonite, lapis and aquamarine to create instant classics.

24k gold is such an important part of our DNA, that most of the GURHAN Silver styles are ‘kissed’ with 24k gold. What do we mean by “kissed”? Simply, it means that they may be either vermeil plated or bonded with 24k gold. Vermeil plating refers to the common process of chemically adhering gold to silver. Bonding entails fusing an actual sheet of gold to the silver. While bonding creates a much thicker application of gold than vermeil, our vermeil plating process applies a substantial layer of gold, befitting a precious jewelry line, and in keeping with FTC guidelines (2.5 microns).
As dedicated advocates of responsible sourcing, we strive to use recycled gold whenever we can. Our supplier certifies its sources so you can share our confidence in purchasing sustainable, responsible gold.
