Faith, Hope, and Love: The Lori Collection

Our newest collection of captivating, handcrafted creations is named after and inspired by the enchanting Armenian province, Lori. Imagine a lush, endless green landscape edged with breathtaking mountains and dotted with ancient monasteries. The insides of these old-world structures are embellished with stunning architectural details and decorated with highly detailed carvings and paintings.


It’s no wonder that Kirk was so inspired by Lori that he created an entire collection named for its awe-inspiring landscape rolling hills and magnificent mountain ranges. Lori has inspired Armenian art for thousands of years, and the influence of intricate Byzantine artwork, the masterful architecture and ancient traditional carvings are interpreted into unique, breathtaking designs in this collection.


Each piece in the Lori Collection captures the essence of the province’s old-world charm and incorporates striking Art-Deco-inspired details to create truly vintage-inspired yet modern designs. For example, the sophisticated, Deco-esque detail of three leaves on each side of the Lori Collection’s center stones invoke the Armenian tradition of symbolism in artwork and the greenery of the gorgeous province. The three leaves represent faith, hope, and love, and this symbolism unifies the Lori Collection’s design influences while nodding to the compelling landscape of its namesake province. Faith, hope, and love are the three pillars of the Kara family values, and in this, our 125th year of expertly handcrafted heritage-inspired rings, we invite you to fall in love with Lori: a love letter to Kirk’s Armenian roots.
