About Le Vian®
The LeVian name has been associated with the world's finest jewelry since the 15th Century. Tasked with safeguarding the incomparable 186-Carat Kohinoor Diamond and other priceless jewels by the Shah of Persia, the family has since built an enviable reputation as jewelers of the highest calibre. In 1950, the late Abdulrahim Ephraim LeVian emigrated from Persia and founded the American division of Le Vian. His passion for colored gemstones resonated through the industry in the 70's, earning him the moniker "King of Turquoise". Never one to rest, he went on to pioneer the use of tanzanite in fine jewelry - establishing the company as a world leader in tanzanite. He was a revered leader in the jewelry industry both in the United States and abroad.
Le Vian is now under the guidance of his sons and daughters, each of who have held a vital role in Le Vian's current stature in the industry. Moossa LeVian, President, brings his passion of gem collection and cutting techniques which began in the 80s when he collected half of the world's finest tanzanite; this was followed by sapphires from Madagascar in the 90s; and natural fancy color Chocolate Diamonds® in 2000. Larry LeVian, Chairman, has instilled in the company his financial skills and expert leadership allowed the company to grow over the last 36 years which today encompasses the Le Vian Corporate headquarters in Long Island, New York. Elizabeth LeVian Etessami, Vice President of Merchandising, joined the company in the 80s and is today involved in the product development, design and merchandising. Eddie LeVian, Designer and CEO, joined the company in the 70s and has continued with the family traditions of creating one-of-a-kind pieces that are both contemporary and timeless, fine jewelry designs that are in essence modern day heirlooms.
