When Leon Tufenkjian found himself making fine jewelry in his attic in 1909, little did he know history was about to be made. A young, hardworking man whose uncompromising nature and profound craftsmanship to create jewels is driven by a deep reverence, Leon Tufenkjian opened his first shop in the historical Beirut Gold Souk. From its very first collections, his humble creations marked the beginning of a marvelous journey that welcomed his three sons who later united their forces under “Tufenkjian Frères”.
