Suzanne Kalan


With over 28 years of experience designing fine jewelry, Suzanne Kalan continues to create stunning collections that are both innovative and unique.

Designing in 18-karat gold, Suzanne’s custom-cut colorful gemstones and dramatically placed diamonds add a modern twist to the traditional design. Her Fireworks collection has been revered by the jewelry industry for its breathtaking design which marries the chaos of scattered baguette diamonds with large custom-cut gemstones. 

Suzanne developed the “Vitrine” concept, custom cutting gemstones flat on top and bottom in order to reveal a pave diamond panel behind the gemstone. Until today, the Vitrine custom cut continues to be an important design signature and figures prominently in the Fireworks collection, with some of the most glamorous and creative pieces showing off an explosion of scattered baguette diamonds behind large topazes and amethysts. 

Besides an evident love of color and large scale in her jewelry, Suzanne’s designs are infused by a seesawing duality between symmetry and asymmetry, beautifully manifested in every piece.

In the past 5 years, Suzanne’s daughter Patile Kalandjian has joined the family company and designs the KALAN by Suzanne Kalan Collection. Set in 14-karat gold, the collection features an array of hand-picked semi-precious stones with accents of diamonds.

Suzanne Kalan is based in California, USA, and produces and manufactured all her jewelry in-house. Suzanne Kalan is widely available in the U.S., including at Net-a-Porter, Neiman Marcus and Saks Fifth Avenue as well as international outlets such as Harrods, TSUM, Barneys Japan, Dover Street Market (London and New York) and Luisa Via Roma in Italy.
