About Ariane Arazi
Ariane Arazi's late grandfather, Isaac Hasbani, founded Hasbani Gioelli in Milan, Italy over 50 years ago. The company is now being run by Ariane’s three uncles who are involved in the design, marketing and sales of the entire collection. From the founding of the company until today, every piece of Hasbani Gioelli is handcrafted and uniquely designed.
Born and raised in Montreal, Canada, Ariane would frequently visit her family in Milan as a young girl. Her grandfather would take her to his office and show her his jewelry collection. She remembers being amazed at the beauty and craftsmanship of these one of a kind pieces and dreamt of being able to create her own jewelry collection someday.
When Ariane's grandfather passed away, she decided to follow in his footsteps. Having already obtained a Bachelor of Arts degree at Concordia University, she decided to continue her studies in the field of jewelry design. Ariane enrolled in the Gemological Institute of America (GIA) and obtained a Graduate Gemologist diploma in 2007. In order to gain more experience in the field and to apply the knowledge she gained in the GIA courses, Ariane began working with her uncles at various jewelry trade shows in the United States. In 2008, Ariane started designing her own line of costume jewelry, creating affordable yet luxurious pieces for a younger, hipper market.
Inspired by the latest fashion trends and colors, Ariane designs a new collection each season by using bold colors, semi-precious stones, pearls, Swarovski crystals and precious metals. In keeping with her family’s tradition, each piece is handcrafted by Ariane and they are all a reflection of her personality and style.
