Lika Behar

In the heart of where East meets West, the ancient city of Istanbul, Lika Behar creates her beautiful masterpieces. The city is one of the true great romantic destinations of the world, where historical Anatolian and Byzantine architecture melds with a modern skyline.

Istanbul and its venerable history serves as a fundamental source of inspiration for Lika Behar. She has mastered the art of melding ancient inspiration into modern sensibility, resulting in exquisitely intimate works of art inspired by ancient civilizations, hand sculpted for modern women.

Lika’s collections feature combinations of hammered 24K gold, pure oxidized silver, diamonds, and gemstones: the same ingredients that have made up the best of jewelry in Turkey for centuries.

Her studio is a turret on the top floor of an old Istanbul building. In the sunlight and breathtaking views of a 14th century skyline, Lika sits there dreaming up shapes, looking into the souls of precious gems, and hammering pure gold and silver into delicate sculptures. Jewelry making is truly a love affair for Lika, it is her life’s passion. From beginning to end she puts her heart and soul into each piece.
