LUXURIATOR was founded and created in 2004 by Los Angeles based eye wear & jewelry designer Franco Vahe. Franco designed the first pair of diamond-studded Luxuriator sunglasses for a celebrity-friend in Los Angeles, where the brand has evolved into an exclusive and highly fashionable must-have jewelry accessory and trademark.
