Michael Bogosian was born in 1950 in Istanbul, Turkey, the former capitol of the Byzantine and Ottoman Empires and home to a tradition of fine jewelry spanning over two millennia. Connecting with a relative who had already emigrated to the U.S., Michael arrived in Studio City, California, centrally located near many of the hottest names in the entertainment industry. Within a few years, Michael developed a reputation as the finest jeweler in the area, and in 1972, he founded Matthew’s, a retail jewelry store named after his first son. Today, Matthew’s stands as one of the premier jewelry boutiques in all of Los Angeles. His beautiful wife Aida, Michael’s sons Matthew, Brian, Michael, Jr. and Arthur are poised to proudly carry on the Michael B. legacy for generations to come.
