Everything You Need to Know Right Now About Kirk Kara Engagement Rings

An engagement ring is one of the most crucial pieces of bridal jewelry you can buy for the big day. Meant to dazzle and inspire awe for a potential bride-to-be, the engagement ring is the biggest spectacle of any bridal jewelry set.

So when purchasing an engagement ring, it helps to know everything there is to know about the designer who made it. For that reason, we’ve put together this article informing you of everything you need to know about fabulous designer Kirk Kara’s engagement rings.

The Kirk Kara Story

Kirk Kara began in the 1890s, when founder Kirk Karaguezian’s grandfather opened a small workshop showcasing his handcrafted jewelry. Unfortunately, he was killed in the 1915 Armenian Genocide. His son Artin never gave up on the craft, however, and opened up another shop in Beirut, Lebanon, otherwise known as the Paris of the Middle East.

Over the years the shop and the family grew, eventually moving overseas to America where the business flourished. Today, the Kirk Kara name is known widely throughout the jewelry industry, winning JCK’s prestigious Jewelers’ Choice design award for ten consecutive years.

Kirk Kara produces a wide range of luxury-grade jewelry including wedding bands and fashion rings. However, Kirk Kara’s generations of artisan skill are on full display in their engagement ring collections. Dazzling, unique, and truly modern, Kirk Kara’s pieces will undoubtedly take your partner’s breath away.
