JewelByAtlantis is a NYC-based family jewelry design and production company started in 1996 by Arakel and Arsham Bekarian, two brothers with a combined 40+ years of master craftsman expertise in jewelry-making. Born in Turkey, a country famous for producing some of the world's finest examples in jewelry metal smith arts, and of Armenian descent, the brothers were blessed with an early entry into their passion; Armenians in Turkey make up the majority of the country's jewelry masters. Arakel and Arsham apprenticed under masters in the safe environment of their relatives' business from the tender ages of 10 and 12. Atlantis Jewelry is now based in the diamond district in NYC. Long appreciated locally in the independent designer scene, Arakel and Arsham are excited about their customer's warm reception of them. The brothers make every piece, ensuring the excellent craftsmanship.
