Yossi Harari Jewelry
Born in Israel and raised in both Israel and Turkey, Yossi Harari grew up constantly surrounded by many fine objects and environments to delight his senses. Yossi received his formal training and degrees in Gemology and Jewelry Design from The Gemological Institute of America in Los Angeles and in History of Arts form Tel Aviv University. In 1992, Yossi opened his factory store in Istanbul where his works are still being created and in 1998, Yossi opened his first gallery in Tel Aviv. Just like the archeological jewelry that inspired this collection, each piece is completely handcrafted using techniques from over 2,000 years ago. This human-touch enhances the feel and look of antiquity inherent in this collection. The pleasure of choosing or wearing a Yossi Harari design is truly a unique and individual experience; no two pieces in the collection are ever exactly alike. 24-karat gold is the muse for and the basis of this collection. The intense yellow color reminds us of the spectacular archeological jewels found in museums worldwide. Marrying the exotic and classically feminine designs of Byzantine and Etruscan jewelry, with his modern, chic and whimsical style, Yossi makes each piece in this collection timeless, wearable and contemporary.
