Often referred to as a maverick, Gurhan defied the common wisdom advising him against working in 24K gold. It’s too soft, he was told. It’s too heavy and customers will never buy it, he heard time and time again. But Gurhan disagreed and studied the ancient craftsmen who were responsible for producing some of the world’s most magnificent and precious creations. By incorporating their techniques, Gurhan developed his own unique method of design and began producing the designs for which he is now so well known.
