Meet Yossi Harari, Designer

Today, Harari is one of the most famed, trendsetting craftsmen whose 24k gold pieces line the shelves of prestigious retailers, such as Bergdorf Goodman and Neiman Marcus, and adorn high-profile and celebrity clients. In 2007, 2009, and again in 2014, Harari was awarded with the Couture Design Award — ‘The Oscars' of the jewelry industry — that recognizes excellence in jewelry and timepiece design. He attributes the success of his nearly 26 year old business to “a Love for Art.” 

His Tel Aviv headquarters, including a stunning showroom used for private and by-appointment jewelry viewings, was his grandparent’s home. Built in 1971 as an exact replica of their winter home in Istanbul, the house features hand-painted and decorated ceilings in stucco and 24k Gold leaves, agate marble floors, Baccarat crystal chandeliers, gilded wood, elaborate doors, and 18th century French vitrage. 

Yossi Harari has endeavored to recover the ancient art of jewelry-making, magically imbuing each of his creations with inspiration drawn from the exotic and classically feminine designs of Byzantine and Etruscan jewelry and marrying it with his modern, chic, whimsical and out-of-the box style. To this day, Harari and his expert goldsmiths in Istanbul — his ancestor’s home — create ingenious organic shapes from pure 24-karat gold sheets, sculpting each toggle, bead, and bezel by hand, refusing to resort to wax molds or castings.
