Taffin's ceramics

Ceramics have become the signature material of James Taffin de Givenchy (the couturier’s nephew), a French jeweler based on Madison Avenue in New York. “The execution, which is reminiscent of enamel, gives a modern look to the wearing of large stones, which American women love”, he explains. He works with ceramic touches as with these black stainless steel hoop earrings, whose undulating edge is highlighted in bright red or orange. He also boldly goes for a total ceramic look: on a ring, the white diamond is set in a khaki striped bezel, while on bracelet three Mandarin garnets are set in a camouflage print. A magnificent work that’s one of a kind.
