Exclusive: Avianne & Co., 2011 Holiday Party Recap



On December 22, 2011 Avianne & Co., threw their annual holiday bash at the exclusive Gold Bar in New York City. Celebrity guests included model Camille McDonald (America’s Next Top Model) and Carla Facciola (Mob Wives). AvianneĀ  & Co., clients including several from the television, music and fashion industries, and select media rounded out the group of well-dressed guests.


If the name Avianne & Co., sounds familiar perhaps you’ve seen the store frequented by rappers Jim Jones, Juelz Santana and Jones’ fiancee Chrissy Lampkin on the hit show “Love & Hip Hop.” In years past, Academy Award-winner Jamie Foxx and actress Jaime Pressly have been the face of the men’s and women’s lines, respectively.


Avianne & Co., is a family run diamond jewelry company with more than a decade of history in the Diamond District. Brothers Joseph and Izzy Aranbayev have built their business via a loyal customer base of athletes, musicians, actors, models and other connoisseurs of fine diamond jewelry and watches. They have crafted many bespoke pieces including a timepiece given to “Mission Impossible” star, Tom Cruise — which was gifted to the actor by his friend Jamie Foxx. From 2006-2008, Avianne & Co., presented watches to Oscar winners and nominees.


Altruism runs deep in the veins of the Aranbayev brothers. Avianne & Co., has participated in charity events for the Quincy Jones Foundation and Arthur Ashe Foundation.
