Works made for Cartier and Bulgari were sold at auctions: Christie’s and Sotheby’s.
Being at the peak of his career Leonid Vilikhin opened his own design house LeVil.Co where he devotes all his time to creating timeless pieces of jewelry employing precious metals, rare gems and unique pearls. Leonid is a conceptual designer who derives his inspiration from all aspects of life; nature, music, literature, art, architecture and from his thoughts and dreams.
During our interview Leonid said: “l don’t have a favorite style…all styles are great! I believe that a piece of jewelry should attract attention to the one who is wearing it and not to itself.”
“Sophisticated women do not use accessories to show off, they use them to highlight something about themselves. Jewelry should always express something about its possessor.”
