An Adventurous Aesthetic
Victor is one of my dearest friends in the industry. We share a mutual love and adoration for rare colored gemstones and built our friendship while gem-hunting at the Tuscon gem show. Victor is larger than life and comes with a huge personality. He also happens to be one of the few jewelers who practices the traditional craft of patina making, making proprietary patina alloys which he paints on 24K gold and silver. Combined with colored gems, these pieces feel like they're from another century. They're so beautiful and strong. K.J.
Dagger Bracelet with Ruby Cabochon
I love Victor Velyan's ancient-looking green patina combined with the deep red of the Ruby. I think they really stand out. K.J.
