Chanour Altu who designs the Chanour Collection is started his fashion jewelry journey in Istanbul, Turkey in 2005. He got inspired from his uncle who was a master designer and creator of hand made exclusive fashion jewelry that made a statement regardless of where and how it was worn. Whether a necklace was worn as a headpiece or a ring or earring as a pendant, it made a statement. Chanour started working in his uncles unique hand made jewelry studio and educated himself in making and designing fashion jewelry from different metals such as Silver, Pewter, Copper, Brass etc.. In 2010 he decided to move in to United States. At the beginning he sold his Artistic, unique jewelry in the streets of Soho, NYC. 2 years after he opened Chanour Jewelry and he only focused on designing and wholesale. Since then he never stopped creating new collections, designing hand made, high quality fashion jewelry and always taking his passion to the next level..
