Welcome, my name is Simon Ghanimian. Growing up, my parents handed down the values of honest, hard work to all their children. We were taught that if you could build something with your hands, you'd never go hungry.
That led to my start in making jewelry. And before long, what started as a hobby became a passion.
After a few years. I had made the journey from Beirut to Los Angeles, where I decided to open my own business. But when I went to register at City Hall, the clerk told me my name was too long.
And that's the day Simon Ghanimian became Simon G.
My how things have changed since then. In the beginning, it was just my wife, Silvia, and me. Now, there are 60 people working here. We have designers from all around the world. And our work is sold in over 900 locations.
But, as proud as I am of what we've accomplished, I still get my biggest thrill from creating a new piece. Sitting down and sketching out an idea is as magical to me now as it was the very first time I did it. Whether it's a traditional wedding ring or a bracelet with multi-colored stones.
On behalf of everyone at Simon G., I hope you find something that brings you as much joy and pleasure in wearing it as it brought to us in designing it.
