Why work with Ashikian?

Our story begins in 1982 when Ashikian Jewelry Group was founded by Karapet Ashikian along with his father Mikael and brother Sarkis. With Karapet's experience working as a jewelry apprentice at several factories, the trio began designing and selling their jewelry to local stores. Since our founding days we are still a family owned and operated business with three generations working together to deliver superior quality jewelry while maintaining remarkable client services. Our operation has grown from the founding family members to over 200 employees of designers, polishers, stone setters and other artisan jewelry professionals. Ashikian Jewelry Group has become the largest jewelry factory in Los Angeles and one of the largest in the United States. In 2001 we opened our state of the art 30,000 sq ft factory in Downtown Los Angeles. Today we are proud to be one of the most exclusive and comprehensive manufacturers of high-end designer jewelry brands. Connect with our team to provide your brand with the highest-caliber of industry excellence. Concept to creation, everything under one roof!

SERVICES

Design Consultation/Product Development

This is the initial step in the production process. At this stage you will work with our team of jewelry professionals, designers and engineers to discuss concepts, price points, market strategy, brand goals and more. From this meeting, we will determine an agreed upon plan to prepare for production. During this process you will see your idea transform from a design to a prototype.    

CAD Design & 3D Printing

At this stage your design begins the process of taking its physical form. Our highly specialized CAD designers take your 2D concept and give it life in a 3D form. Once approved, the 3D form is sent to the printing department, allowing you to physically hold your creation. This physical form is utilized later in our process during casting.

Engraving

From a simple logo to a fully sketched design, at this stage we take your trademark feature and translate it to your piece, giving it a custom craftsmen touch.

Ethically sourced materials.

Ashikian Jewelry Group recognizes quality processes requires quality materials. As a leader in the precious metal refining manufacturing industry we adhere to state, national and international standards on responsible practices for diamonds, gold and platinum group metals. We begin by cultivating a traceable chain of custody, starting with the refining of the recycled precious metals to our practices in our LA facility. Our primary source for recycled gold and platinum is secured from old jewelry and scrap gold purchased from our customer base. Other recycled precious metal sources include electronics, catalytic converters and industrial byproducts.

These metals go through a refining process that separates their accompanying alloys, reducing to pure gold and platinum. This refining process is done in the United States, meeting and exceeding all Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA), as well as state and local regulatory standards. The resulting pure gold and platinum have the same properties as newly mined ore, but without the negative environmental consequences, ready to transform into finished jewelry.

Our recycled gold processes are certified and audited by The SRSP (Signet Responsible Sourcing) and The RJC (Responsible Jewellery Council). This code of practices encompasses but is not limited to the areas of human rights, labor rights, environmental impact, mining practices, and product disclosure.

Ashikian Jewelry Group continues to engage in responsible business practices through annual training, due diligence, and cooperation with the various compliance agencies in our industry. We use only ethically sourced materials and recycled gold for our jewelry. Along with United Precious Metal Refining, Inc. we are committed to the RJC’s Code of Practices which include audits to ensure we are compliant.

Ashikian Jewelry Group is committed to minimizing its environmental impact and footprint. All factory water is recycled and reused. Remaining trace metals are refined and recycled. We also developed a proprietary filtering and recycling method for all wax used in our casting and molding departments.

 

Invest in quality craftsmanship.

At Ashikian Jewelry Group our goal is clear communication, price transparency, and long-term business relationships. Our expertise, innovation and technologies allow us to price pieces prior to production. Ashikian Jewelry Group seeks to combine our unique manufacturing process with our client’s creative design resulting in desirable brand collections.
