    Donald Claflin: Donald Claflin was a designer with a spectacular mind for whimsical design. He honed his craft working for David Webb, prior to joining Tiffany & Co. Throughout the late 1960s and 1970s, Claflin’s fantasy based creations explored the Seven Wonders, character’s from children’s books, sea creatures and fairy tale imagery. He is well recognized for his strawberry jewel line and his signature criss cross ring design. After an eleven-year creative partnership, Claflin let Tiffany for Bvlgari where he worked until his death in 1979.
