In 1994 another watchmaker handed Gurhan a sheet of pure 24-karat gold and, unknowingly, unlocked his life long passion which would come to define his vocation to pure gold. The energy he experienced touching this sheet was so moving and emotional that his immediate reaction was to discover the secrets hidden within this 24-karat gold sheet. Gurhan was fascinated by why metal smiths had stopped working in pure gold and the challenges presented by the limitations of the metal, especially its softness. It quickly became his mission to revive the use of the metal and conquer it as a medium for jewelry design. Interestingly, Gurhan still carries this sheet of gold in his wallet as a constant reminder of that moment.
