Simon G Jewelry
Simon Ghanimian, President of Simon G. Jewelery, knows what women want. From bracelets to wedding bands and beyond, Simon, has become the leading trendsetter in bridal and fashion jewelry for over 20 years.
"My passion for precious gems and rare stones has inspired my unique collection," says Simon. "Whether I create a wedding band or a neckpiece, I design each piece of jewelry with the hope it will become an heirloom." Growing up, Simon's dream was to become an engineer, though as time went on, he found himself lured in a different direction.
At age 15, Simon, in his spare time, discovered he was drawn to sparkling jewels and had an underlying passion for diamonds. He began spending his summer breaks studying gems and crafting unique jewelry. Simon's parents wanted their son to attain a higher quality of life and a better education. In 1975, on his own, he immigrated to America, ultimately seeking the American dream.
Living in New York, Simon quickly realized that the expense of school was too burdening and decided to revisit his passion of jewelry to supplement his schooling. After designing jewelry for high profiled jewelers throughout New York, Simon's career proved to be promising. With hopes of having his own jewelry line Simon moved to Los Angeles and in 1981 established Simon G. Jewelry. Located in Southern California, he has become an international jewelry designer where fashion is the focus and fine-quality, contemporary, diamond-set jewelry is the specialty.
The Simon G. Jewelry collection includes classic to contemporary styles of wedding bands, neckpieces, earrings, bracelets and pendants. Preferably using 18 karat or platinum, Simon G. hand selects his own metals and only uses natural colored diamonds imported from Belgium, Israel and India. In using only the finest gems, each piece of jewelry is hand finished with unique workmanship that includes intricate beadwork and engraving. "Great jewelry is an investment which is why I begin with only the most precious stones. I am very sensitive to the needs of the consumer and attribute my success to my ability to provide customers with the best value and quality."
As a member of the American Gem Society, Simon G. Jewelry is a reflection of the high ethical standards of manufacturing and distribution within the industry. Simon G. Jewelry is proud of its reputation for quality and integrity and will go to great lengths to protect it and the fine retailers that support the brand. Simon, a husband and a father to three sons, plans to pass down his passion for diamonds and innovative designs to his children in hopes of having them run the company in years to come.
