Designed in Berlin, OUVERTURE is handcrafted in a small atelier in Armenia by jewelers with over 25 years of experience to ensure the highest standard in craftsmanship. Treated as a veritable art form, jewelry-making has been a significant part of Armenian history and culture for over 2000 years.Exclusively crafted of 14K solid gold, GH/VS diamonds and other precious stones, each design reflects the designer’s ever-evolving viewpoint on modern luxury aesthetics.
Born digitally as a direct-to-consumer brand, OUVERTURE is currently available at select retailers and ships worldwide.
Committed to 100% recycled gold by 2023, OUVERTURE is designed with future upcycling in mind to slow the cycle of new production. The circular design process ensures that the brand operates under a zero waste principle. The designs are based on the notion of unity, connectedness, continuity. This connection between forms allows for an effortless redesign process.
To avoid overproduction and minimize resource exploitation, OUVERTURE is handcrafted in small batches. Many of the designs are exclusively available for pre-order. At the end of each year the little overstock that may be left is either upcycled or recycled.
After years in investment management and consulting, Kris Ter-Ghazaryan started OUVERTURE inspired by the rich traditions of her birthplace, and her passion for fashion and design. Originally from Armenia, Kris has lived in Prague, Boston and New York before making Berlin her home.
