Harry Stambolian was born in Yerevan, which is the capital and largest city of Armenia, and one of the oldest dioceses in the world.
The history of Yerevan dates back to the 8th century BC, with the founding of the fortress of Erebuni in 782 BC. Erebuni was designed as a great administrative and religious center, and a fully royal capital.
This rich history became the root of inspiration behind Harrys’career and the force that drives his artistic passion.
Harry settled in New York’s diamond district in the 1980’s where he earned an admirable reputation as one of the most distinctive and innovative jewelry designers.
Influenced by Armenian, American, Russian and Eurasian culture and architecture, each piece he designs, strikes a deep chord and forms a boundless and meaningful connection with the viewer.
Through Harrys’ vision, along with his and his artisans’ talent and skill, Stambolian has become known as a Premiere House of Jewels, filled with bold, unique and one of a kind pieces, all executed with precision and timeless perfection.
Harry Stambolian sources and develops the finest jewels and metals and pairs them with impeccably interesting designs and master craftsmanship-yet he does not only credit those ingredients for the beauty and uniqueness of his work.
It is the culture behind them that imbues the soul of each piece and the heart and creativity that is put into them that emanates way above and beyond their physicality.
Each creation is marked with Harrys’ trademark heart, a symbol of eternal life and his heartfelt contribution to each piece; and of the health, happiness and joy that Stambolian jewels bring to the wearer.
