It’s been nearly 24 years since LV Luxury launched in Las Vegas. Led by founder Ezra Bekhor, who brought his penchant for luxury timepieces and jewelry to Nevada in 1976, the family-owned business now boasts more than eight branded watch and jewelry boutiques representing over 25 world-class brands throughout the Entertainment Capital of the World. Here, we reflect on LV’s sparkling history and look ahead to its bright future.
LV Luxury Jewelers CEO Ezra Bekhor, Vice President and Boutique Director Christine Sidoris, and President and COO Alan Bekhor are the talented team behind the Las Vegas-grown brand.

With the success of The Chainery, Bekhor sets his sights on the Strip, opening Ca’d’oro Jewelers at The Venetian Resort Las Vegas. The launch marks the birth of LV Luxury and the brand’s first venture into combining jewelry and timepieces under one roof. Omega joins the growing empire as its first watch partner, followed by TAG Heuer, Baume & Mercier, Ebel, Charriol and Damiani.
Ezra's son, Alan Bekhor, joins the family business as its president and chief operating officer.

In the same year, LV expands its fine jewelry offerings with the Las Vegas debut of the region’s first Van Cleef & Arpels boutique at The Palazzo.
