Founded by jewelry designer Tenny Hovsepians, Avenessi is all about creating affordable and meaningful jewelry. Born in Iran, Tenny’s creativity and love of art began at a very young age with dreams of becoming an artist or writer. After graduating from UCLA with her bachelors in English, 23 year old Tenny began to teach high school. While she loved to teach, the dreams of her childhood were still in the back of her mind and she began writing for online magazines. Soon, Tenny found the love of her life in her husband Artin whose family had been in the jewelry business for decades. Within a few years, Avanessi was born and Tenny had finally found her true calling.
Named after her husband, (whose last name is Avanessian), Avanessi aims to spread the message of LOVE. This bestselling collection was designed to encourage everyone to apply this precious sentiment to life. Ten percent of all the sales are donated to a different charity each month with the hope that by giving back to the world, LOVE is bound to somehow conquer. With beautiful pieces made of gold, silver, rose gold, and sparkling diamonds (a girl’s best friend), Avanessi has caught the heart of people everywhere.
Each collection connects with people and makes us all truly believe in love, like the Knot collection which features rings, bracelets, and hoop earrings, each with a “forget me knot” knot, representing a tie that cannot be broken or the Baby collection with dainty little bracelets for the newest member of your family. Avanessi is full of unforgettable pieces that you will never want to take off.
