The upscale jewelry maker Vahan Jewelry released a new line: the Bamboo Collection. The initial piece of the collection is a sterling silver band bracelet with a 14k gold vermeil overlay. The surface of the bracelet mimics a regal bamboo shoot with diamond studs forming the ridges of the stalk.
Vahan Jewelry was founded in 1968 by Leon “Sasha” Der Calousdian. His first collection was sold at Bergdorf Goodman, a high end department store, and his jewelry became popular very quickly. He was the second designer to ever be exclusively represented by that store. Bamboo is known to be of the fastest growing plants in the world, and can grow up to four feet within 24 hours. The rapid growth in the popularity of Vahan Jewelry makes the choice of a bamboo line seem exceptionally appropriate.
