What is Le Vian? Discover the company's history & background
Of course, before you make any significant purchase, knowing more about the brand and the company behind it is always essential.
So let's dive deeper into Le Vian and its fascinating history.
Le Vian is a family-owned jewelry company founded in the 15th century in Persia (modern-day Iran).
The family's expertise in the jewelry business was passed down from generation to generation, and they eventually settled in the United States in the early 20th century.
Under the leadership of Abdulrahim Ephraim LeVian, the family's 5th generation member, the company began to gain international recognition.
Today, the company is led by Eddie LeVian, an 8th-generation member of the family and the CEO.
Le Vian stands apart from other jewelry brands through its commitment to using only the finest materials and its expertise in sourcing rare and exotic gemstones.
Years of dedication and knowledge cumulate in the exquisite Le Vian designs you won’t find anywhere else.
Over the years, Le Vian has continued to push the boundaries of innovation in the jewelry industry, creating stunning pieces that combine traditional craftsmanship with modern design.
Eddie LeVian has a keen eye for unique and rare gemstones.
He is responsible for introducing the world to the brand's signature Le Vian Chocolate Diamonds, brown-hued diamonds you can only purchase from Le Vian.
And, trust us when we say these world-famous Chocolate, Vanilla, and Nude Diamonds are delectable in every way.
These gemstones are trademarked and are highly sought after for their exceptional quality and beauty.
Le Vian is also committed to making significant charitable donations yearly and creating a positive global impact through their philanthropy.
They are a leader in sustainable and ethical practices in the jewelry industry, which is much needed in today’s society.
They are committed to responsible sourcing and have a comprehensive program to ensure their diamonds and other gemstones are ethically and responsibly mined.
Le Vian is a jewelry brand with a rich history and an unwavering commitment to excellence.
How popular is the Le Vian brand?
Le Vian has become a trendy brand in the world of luxury jewelry and is a top choice for celebrities, including Kerry Washington and Lauren Graham.
In fact, the brand has won a plethora of awards and accolades over the years, including the prestigious "Jeweler of the Year" award from the Retail Jewelers of America.
Their attractive designs and outstanding quality have earned them a cult-like loyal following of customers and admirers.
If you’re one of these followers, you’ll go from fashionista to Le Vian-ista! We’re not kidding either; that’s what their loyal fans are called.
Eddie LeVian hosts a “red carpet review” in Las Vegas each year, showcasing the latest designs and trends with the industry elites and high fashion models.
Recently, LeVian has opened the doors to the red carpet review for the brand's top collectors to get their eyes on the upcoming collections they want to invest in.
And by top collectors, we mean people spending a regular six figures on Le Vian pieces.
Roughly 100 collectors attend the event each year, primed to get their hands on the latest Le Vian pieces.
The brand also promotes itself with its Red Tag collection. Over 300 celebrities are snapped wearing Le Vian items every year, but the brand insists they will not pay stars to wear their pieces.
Instead, if a celebrity is head over heels for an item, they must purchase it. Once they do and have been photographed wearing the piece, it will be added to the Red Tag collection.
Other notable household names who love Le Vian include former First Lady Michelle Obama and Scarlett Johanson.
Le Vian Trunk Shows
The Le Vian Trunk Shows are exciting events that Le Vian fans should not miss.

The Le Vian Trade-In Program Guidelines
If you’re the lucky owner of an exquisite Le Vian jewelry piece, you must take advantage of the Le Vian trade-in program.
Of course, guidelines are in place to ensure only authentic items are traded in or traded up. Therefore, the Le Vian guidelines stipulate ONLY the original purchaser of the Le Vian item can trade in or trade up.
And, the Le Vian Trunk Shows and events are where you can exclusively trade-in or trade-up items from your Le Vian collection - you won’t get an opportunity anywhere else!
The best thing about owning a Le Vian jewelry item or a timepiece is that your trade-up option lasts a lifetime. All that is required is your certificate of authenticity and sales receipt.
Beware, your piece must be in good condition and should not have been altered or abused.
There may be situations where exceptions apply, and any trade-in/trade-up is determined at the Le Vian representative's discretion.
Are there purchase requirements for trading in/trading up Le Vian items?
Indeed there are!
For any item originally purchased within $500-$2499.99, you must make a $5000 trade-up to qualify.
Items originally purchased over $2500 only require an additional $1000 trade-up.
Once you have said goodbye to your precious original Le Vian piece, it will be returned to the dedicated Le Vian representative at the Trunk Show or event.
Can you trade in more than one item?
You must limit yourself if you’re an avid collector and have many items you’d like to trade-in or trade-up.
Only one item can be traded in or up at each time or event in return for another single item. Unfortunately, you cannot bundle items together for a higher trade-up.
But we imagine you won’t want to part with many of your Le Vian items anyway, so this shouldn’t be a problem!
It also gives you an excuse to visit more Le Vian shows!
Don’t have your Le Vian certificate of authenticity or sales receipt?
Not a problem!
Le Vian upholds the highest standard of service for their clients and will do everything in their power to assist you with your trade-in or trade-up.
So if you’ve misplaced your certificate of authenticity or can’t find your sales receipt, they will try to find your details in their historical data system.
They must do this to ensure the item being traded is an authentic piece. Still, they want to ensure you receive an accurate credit amount indicative of your original purchase value.
Le Vian is an outstanding luxury jewelry brand that puts its clients at the heart of its exceptional and distinctive designs.
They always strive for quality, going beyond fashion and trends to deliver rare gemstones guaranteed to make a statement.
Le Vian jewelry collectors and enthusiasts should take advantage of the opportunity to attend a Le Vian Trunk Show to be the first to find exclusive pieces.
And for those looking to trade up their Le Vian jewelry, the Trunk Shows are the perfect opportunity to do so.
What are “Chocolate Diamonds”?
Sadly, they aren’t delicious diamonds you can snack on, but thankfully, they won’t melt on your finger either!
One of the signature features of Le Vian jewelry is their use of "Chocolate Diamonds."
And they look as delicious as they sound!
These are brown-colored diamonds that are unique to the Le Vian brand. The term "Chocolate Diamonds" is a registered trademark of Le Vian.
The brand has gone to great lengths to promote these diamonds as a distinct and valuable category of gemstones.
How are “Chocolate Diamonds” sourced?
So, how are Chocolate Diamonds sourced? We’ll give you a hint: It has nothing to do with Willy Wonka!
The diamonds are natural, untreated brown diamonds found in the Argyle mine in Western Australia and mines in Brazil and Africa.
Traditional diamond dealers often overlook these diamonds as they are considered lower-quality diamonds.
However, Le Vian recognized the potential beauty of these diamonds and began to use them in their jewelry designs, showcasing their unique and rich color.
After all, beauty is found where we look for it!
Are “Chocolate Diamonds” a good investment?
As for whether Chocolate Diamonds are a good investment, that isn’t the best way to look at your diamond jewelry purchase.
At Ben Garelick, we remind our customers that diamonds are not a highly liquid investment and should not be considered as one when buying.
But people like to know if their big purchase will hold value in future years, and that’s fair!
If you're looking for a unique and distinctive diamond that will hold its value, a Le Vian Chocolate Diamond is a great choice.
The rarity and beauty of these diamonds have made them highly sought after, and they are likely to hold their value over time.
But the market and trends fluctuate, so what’s popular now may not be the same in 50 years. Just keep this in mind!
You should know that Le Vian is a highly respected and well-regarded brand in the luxury jewelry world.
A Le Vian Chocolate, Vanilla or Nude diamond is a beautiful and unique gemstone and a valuable investment that will surely be treasured for years to come!
How much do Le Vian pieces cost on average?
As with anything popular, there is usually a price tag to match!
And Le Vian pieces do typically land on the higher end of budgets.
On average, Le Vian pieces can range from a few hundred dollars to hundreds of thousands, depending on the rarity and quality of the gemstones used, as well as the complexity of the design.
But that’s the same for most things in life; it really depends on your budget and preference!
A classic Le Vian Chocolate Diamond piece of jewelry could cost around $500 to $5,000.
Conversely, an extremely elaborate piece with a larger center stone and intricate detailing may cost upwards of $20,000 and could teeter into the hundreds of thousands.
Honestly, there’s no limit to buying Le Vian items. It’s no secret that some of their diamonds and pieces go for over a million dollars, especially rare pieces.
Because Le Vian jewelry is considered a luxury brand, it may not be within everyone's budget.
However, if you're looking for a truly unique and high-quality piece of jewelry that will stand the test of time, Le Vian is worth considering.
And while Le Vian jewelry may come with a higher price tag, the brand is dedicated to providing exceptional value to its customers.
Each piece is carefully crafted with the finest materials and attention to detail, and the brand's commitment to responsible sourcing ensures that you can feel good about your purchase.
If you're looking for a fashion-forward jewelry piece that will be a conversation starter and a treasured heirloom for years to come, Le Vian should be on your shopping list!
