What’s the Buzz this Summer at Argo? The “B” Collection by Gumuchian
It’s arrived and just in time for the summer! Love at first sight, we fell head over heels for this exquisitely crafted bee inspired line by the high-end designer, Gumuchian. And of course, we couldn’t resist when we found that a portion of the sale goes back to the bees!
Being in the industry for years, we know fine jewelry when we see it. Gumuchian is just that. Their name has earned a well-established reputation in the diamond and jewelry industry due to their superior craftsmanship and spectacular design. Just holding a Gumuchian piece is a delight, you immediately notice the high quality the moment you interact with the jewelry.
This bee-inspired collection is available in 18 karat yellow, white and rose gold as well as platinum. Many of the shapes are hexagonal to reflect the bee’s hive. The way the diamonds contrast with the beautiful metals and the negative hex space is just striking! Below is just a sample of the rich and bold designs of the “B” collection.

“Inspired by our surroundings we thrive to not only bring beauty into the world with our designs but also promise to help keep the world beautiful by giving back. Bees have captured the attention of the world since their decline was chronicled in the news and their aesthetic and attractive patterns have captured Gumuchian’s heart. The Gumuchian ladies have been as busy as worker bees to produce the “B” collection as an homage to the fuzzy little endangered fly. Since Gumuchian cannot produce honey, they will contribute a share of its profits to the expansion of their colonies. A portion of the proceeds from the sale of the collection will be donated to the University of Minnesota Bee Squad non-profit research program.” – from the designer, Gumuchian.
More About the Designers
It’s always a pleasure to partner with a company that is like-minded in ethics and customer service. Gumuchian has been manufacturing high-quality jewelry in the US with a commitment to beauty, quality, and style for over 30 years. The family came to the US in 1979 from Antwerp, Belgium where they had manufactured diamonds and colored stones. After the family moved to New York, the matriarch of the family decided there was a great need for fine European style jewelry. She began her line of luxury jewelry. After her two daughters graduated from college they too became a part of the family business. Today, the daughters still design the jewelry: “designed by women for women”. The pieces reflect a sophisticated line that can be worn from day to night made from the very best materials. Their diamonds still come from a family in Belgium. Their flawless molds are from the Carrera Casting Corporation in New York. The pieces are meant to be worn. With high quality like this, they will last a lifetime and will be handed down to future generations: a timeless collection. To view Gumuchian’s other collections visit gumuchian.com.
