Sevan BICAKCI | Jewelries for the Love of Istanbul

Sevan BICAKCI | Jewelries for the Love of Istanbul

The first time I saw a Sevan ring, Guler Sabanci was on television, happily waiving her hand to the cameras with her square shaped ring which had the Ottoman Sultan Bayazid’s portrait on its surface. Guler Sabanci; who has just been selected to be one of the 100 Most Powerful Women of 2006, by Forbes magazine is not only a business woman; with her elite style, she has a great vision and wisdom to see the best things to come. She has found Sevan Bicakci’s collection extremely marvelous and helped him on the way to get his popularity gain through the societies.

His jewelry designs and mostly the rings are like pieces of architectural masterpieces coming from the past. Every single piece makes you feel like you wear the miniature of a monument. History combined with stones; perfectly hand crafted designs therefore make Sevan rings unique and precious.


Sevan was born 1972 in Istanbul and grown up in a district called Samatya, which has been home to many Istanbul-born Armenians for centuries. He was 13 when he left school to start working with his hands in a trade. With the help of his father, Sevan started to work at the workshop of goldsmith-master Hovsep Chatak at the Grand Bazaar where is a huge complex which carries more than 500 years of traditional jewelry making within its walls.

There was so much motivation surrounding him to increase his knowledge of jewelry design and craftsmanship. After his master passed away, when Sevan was just 18, he had to make a choice between shifting to another workshop and going on his own. And even though he was young in comparison, Sevan started to work all alone in a tiny workshop space.
