Suzanne Kalan turned her passion for fine jewelry into a reality and started her own company in 1988, just after her daughter, Patile Kalandjian was born.
With the start of the company, Patile would often be at the Suzanne Kalan studio after school, playing with gemstones and sketching. Over the years, she grew up working closely with her mother and father, learning about jewelry production and design.
After spending some time studying Biochemistry, Patile decided to change routes and join the family business in 2012. She leads the production team with her father, and designs the 14-karat collection, KALAN By Suzanne Kalan.
Largely influenced by her passion for painting and geometric art, the line features an array of handpicked semi-precious gemstones including, opals, chalcedony and onyx. The designs capture classic and modern themes, as the colorful stones are accented with diamonds.
Patile’s newest collection, Soleil, is inspired by Suzanne Kalan’s ‘Vitrine’ concept, meaning to “showcase” in French. The gemstones are custom-cut to reveal beautiful gold prong designs behind each center stone.
KALAN by Suzanne Kalan is available in the U.S. and internationally, including at Liberty London, Nordstrom, Neiman Marcus and Saks Fifth Avenue.
