Introduced to the United States in 1989, Varna was established by revered platinum-smith and jewelry designer, Garo Chividjian.
During his early years in Bulgaria, Garo spent most of his time perfecting his craft of meticulously hand made fine jewelry. Bringing his devotion to the United States, Garo’s designs became an immediate sensation, influencing the popularity of modernized vintage style jewelry.
Artistry comes alive as no two Varna originals are exactly alike. Making jewelry by hand is like creating a sculpture – a unique work art that is a reflection of ones self. Each piece takes a tremendous amount of time and skill. Rigorously taking the time to ensure each design is created flawlessly is how Varna upholds its high standards and excellence in quality. Whether contemporary or vintage in style, Varna designs are timelessly classic pieces that will be treasured for generations to come.
All Varna jewelry is completely hand fabricated by experienced craftsmen in our Los Angeles, CA studio and can be found in authorized fine retail stores throughout the United States.
