Kirk Kara Lori Collection Offers Vintage-Style Beauty
A reminder that from hardships, love and success can still thrive, the Lori Collection from Kirk Kara will excite every sophisticated art deco lover who shops Ben Garelick’s diamond engagement rings. Debuting in the company’s 125th year, the Lori Collection is named not after a person, but a province in Armenia. The Lori province in the Northern part of Armenia is the largest region of the country known for its tall mountains and lush green forests. At the base of Mount Ararat on the intersection of the eastern and western worlds, Armenians controlled international trading routes that stretched from Europe to China and India to Russia and they incorporated their own identity with the multicultural characteristics discovered.
It was there that Kirk Kara designs were born in 1890 from the small workshop opened by Kirk Karaguezian’s grandfather who showcased his delicate hand-engraved jewelry. His designs were inspired by the highly detailed carvings that were such a beautiful part of the Armenian culture. Through the tragedies of genocide and civil war, these unique and beautiful designs lived on through generations of family artisans.
Kirk Kara’s Art-Deco Engagement Ring Designs
A love letter to Kirk Kara’s Armenian roots, the sophisticated Lori Collection proudly showcases the company’s history with richly detailed engagement rings inspired by old world Armenian carvings, patterns, and art, with a nod to refined art deco style. You’ll discover vintage-style elements like these crafted in a Kirk Kara Lori engagement ring that you’ll fall in love with:
Three-leaf side designs.
Showcased in designs like this Emerald Cut Halo Diamond Engagement Ring, the three leaves symbolize faith, hope, and love.
Geometric cuts & designs.
The art deco style is renowned for its use of geometric shapes and patterns and the Lori Collection integrates these flawlessly as in this Round Cut Halo Diamond Engagement Ring.
Filigree is one of the highlights of art deco designs with intricate cut-outs and exquisite detail like you see in this Emerald Cut Diamond Engagement Ring.
Although the art deco time period calls for ring designs in platinum and white gold, you can order your Lori Collection engagement ring in 14K & 18K yellow or rose gold as well.
