Iran’s best designers in the field of gold and jewelry

27 September 2023 76 Views No Comments
Introduction

The art of jewelry making has deep roots in the history of Iran. From rhytons and golden cups to ornaments and other valuable objects that have been mentioned throughout the history of Iran before Islam. Other examples include the crowns of the Achaemenid kings, the sacred throne from the Sasanian era, and the gold dishes of Khosrow II. They all reflect one thing: Iran has seen many skilled craftsmen throughout its rich history. During the Sasanian era, the art of jewelry flourished. Like many other art disciplines. The complexity and quality of Sasanian coins, jewels and ornaments speaks for itself. During the Safavid era, Iranian artisans were skilled at making gold strings, as they could produce 41 inches of gold string using a gold bar weighing approximately 5 grams (with iron tools). This thread, which was as thin as a pinhead, revolved around the spindle and was very strong.

 

Goharbin:

 

200 years ago, during the time of Naseruddin Shah Qajar, a name emerged in the jewelry industry that has remained ever since. Haj Mohammad Mahdi Javaheri was a famous merchant in his time and played a significant role in the development of the jewelry industry. He brought many precious stones and exquisite jewelry from India, Oman, Bahrain, Tanzania and many other countries to Tehran. Haj Mohammad Mahdi was not only a businessman, but also a designer. He was also familiar with the techniques and tricks of jewelry making. With endless enthusiasm and brilliant ideas, he decided to open a shop in Qavam-ud-Douleh market in Tehran, which is still there. He sent his sons to learn from the masters of the trade so that they could become the best in the business. Haj Mohammad Mahdi died at the end of the Qajar era. His children, who were expert jewelers, expanded their father’s shop.
Morteza Javaheri, the son of Haj Mohammad Mahdi, decided to continue his father’s legacy and became one of the famous merchants and artists of his time. And it was Haj Mahmoud Goharbin who followed the path of his father (Morteza Javaheri).
Management became second nature to him and it must be said that he is one of the most successful managers of the last 60 years. The concept of the first gold and jewelry shopping center in Tehran belonged to him. He passed away in 1368. His compositions stand out even after years. If we claim that many of the achievements of this industry, both in Iran and outside Iran, are the result of Mahmoud Gohrbin’s efforts and thinking, it is nothing but the truth. He believed that art should be sought instead of money, and he defined art as: “creating something out of nothing.”
Korosh Goharbin son (Mahmoud Goharbin), who was brought up in such a family, was interested in gemology and jewelry making from an early age. He has been in the business for about 60 years.
Korosh Goherbin and his brother (Dariush Goherbin) set up an independent workshop and store in Taleghani Street, Tehran in 1354, and in 1359 he decided to get acquainted with the new methods of jewelry making in his field. So, he traveled to the United States of America and took courses like “Petrology”, “Jewelry Design” and “Jewellery Making” at the Gemological Institute of America (GIA). While studying there, in addition to learning from his professors, he sometimes taught his instructors some of his personal methods!
Like his father, Koresh Goharbin insisted on preserving the family heritage, so he returned to Iran and opened a new workshop and store on Vanak Street in Tehran. This is the largest jewelry gallery in Iran and it took 4 years to build.
In 1380, due to his interest in the gold and jewelry industry, he decided to become a member of the Tehran Gold, Silver and Jewelry Union and was the president of the union for 9 years. He worked hard to expand the union because he believed that gold and jewelry have existed in Iran for 7000 years and this industry should flourish once again. He also believed that Iranian products should be prioritized over foreign products.
He is proud that his children are also experts in this industry and he is sure that his children will follow the same path as their predecessors and pass on everything they have learned to the next generation.
Ghorbein’s vision is that jewelry is an art and every great work of art is created with love.

 

Anahita Geethi:

 

Anahita Gittistein is an Iranian architect and jeweler born in Iran and raised in Germany, England and finally the United States of America. Having worked as an architect for many years in New York, he has been using his skills, diverse personal experiences and the heritage of his hometown to design and make Gon sculpture jewelry.
Regarding his designs, he says: “The aesthetics of my work is a study of the contrast between delicate and soft angles and curves with sharp and structured angles.” Lines, curves, angles, shadow and color and light play a very important role in the design of Anahita brand jewelry. The patterns and motifs of ancient Iranian art and architecture and many places where he lived have also greatly influenced his designs.
“I try to stay within the language that inspires me, the soft, sculptural forms of Art Nouveau, as well as North Africa, have been my favorite and inspiration,” he says.
Another one of the most famous jewels of this designer is yellow briolite jade earrings. Anahita Giti says about the use of jade and agate stones: The first time I saw briolite agate, I fell in love with it, a stone with colorful and varied shades and a golden glow that attracts the eyes of every viewer.

 

The design office of this Iranian lady is located in Chicago and she also lives in New York. It should be mentioned that after the birth of her first child, Mrs. Gitti moved from the profession of architecture to jewelry and was able to achieve many successes in this field as well. He says in this regard: “I love the idea of the creative process of moving pen on paper and producing and creating a product in less than a month. I am very interested in scale in design and I believe that jewelry is wearable art.”
One of the most beautiful and creative pieces of jewelry in her new collection is a crystal glass necklace studded with diamonds and rubies.

 

The idea of designing this necklace was inspired by the ancient warriors who, when going to the battlefield, gave a small container as a “tear cup” to their wives. If it was filled with tears when they returned from the battle, it was a sign of love and affection. In her collection, Anahita has designed each piece as a whole, and less use has been made of assembling and assembling different pieces.
Moonstone and Labradorite are other favorite stones of this creative Iranian designer. The inspiration of mysticism and such spaces in his Margon necklace, inspired by the Garden of Eden at sunset, is also one of the other beautiful jewels of this collection.
Famous faces such as Christian Bell, Sarah Drew Graves and of course many actors of the popular “Game of Thrones” series such as Lynam Headey or the sly “Cersei Lannister”, Sophie Turner and the character of “Sansa Stark” and of course Emilia Clarke or “Daenerys Targaryen”. » Mehboob and in general the designers of this series are fans of this Iranian designer, so it is better to be a little more proud of Iranian talent by revisiting this TV series from the use of jewelry by this Iranian artist.
