    Taffin: Taffin is a New York based, high-end jewelry company, established in 1996 by the designer James de Givenchy. First established as a salon to work on jewelry commissions with private clients, and then expanded to open the Madison Avenue headquarters and atelier, which showcase the couture collection. His designs are sculptural, individual, and inventive in the pairing of unexpected materials. James delights in creating works of art for daily wear, finding gemstones with personality and fashioning unique pieces. As he states on his website, “Jewelry is an object that projects who you are. It takes artistry, intellect and logic to make it.”
