The history of an aesthete dynasty, made of four generations of ancient jewelry and exceptional stones lovers and experts. 

Years after years, decades after decades, this Armenian family, high-value treasures lover, sharpened her expertise and travelled all over the world.

The legacy has begun between Europe and Asia, more than a hundred years ago. Agop Iskender, the patriarch, was one of the exclusive gemstones and pieces of jewelry provider for the highest ranks of his time. He will then share his passion with his son, Zaimair, a travel lover who often went to Paris to provide for famous customers.

 

 
 
 

At the end of the 60’s, the third generation of Iskender came to Paris. Jacques Iskender will establish a handful of jewelry stores, notably one on the Rue de la Paix. The French capital is the place to be for high-end jewelry.

A new generation, a new address : Laurent Iskender has settled in Geneva in 2006, a good choice in regard of the international reputation of the city.

The gallery is located in Geneva, right in the centre of the most prestigious district.

This new showcase in the inheritance of galleries opened in the past in Paris at 8 Rue de la Paix 75002 and 46 Avenue George V 75008.

With an international loyal clientele built up over the decades and a serious reputation, ISKENDER is the place to find jewellery pieces, from the end of the XIXth Century to the 1970’s, and precious stones of exceptional quality and size.

ISKENDER devotes most of its efforts to seeking out jewels from the Belle Epoque, the geometric harmony of Art Deco, and Art Nouveau.

Most of the works are realized by jewellers such as Cartier, Van Cleef and Arpels, Boucheron and Chaumet or by designers such as Suzanne Belperron, René Boivin, Raymond Templier, Jean Després and Pierre Sterlé.
