New York based high-jewelry house, Taffin, has become recognized globally over the past 20 years for its boundary-breaking designs and use of unexpected materials. In 1996, James de Givenchy established Taffin's private Manhattan salon, creating one of a kind high-jewelry pieces.
Raised in Beauvais, a small town north of Paris, Givenchy was drawn to the energetic diversity of New York City. After noteworthy tenures at the most prestigious auction houses and jewelry companies, Taffin was established as a New York salon to work with private clients on special commissions in 1996. Givenchy later designed and opened the Madison Avenue headquarters of Taffin, located in the same building that houses his atelier, to showcase the now extensive couture collection.
