Stone Set

June 30, 2015

The beauty of Taffin jewellery is in the materials –– diamonds strung on silk, a sparkling marquise set within a simple pebble or a four-carat African ruby set into ceramic. And the colour combinations –– mandarin garnets with pink ivory wood, a pink kunzite on rose gold and an orange sapphire on lilac ceramic –– are electric. When Architectural Digest asked designer James Taffin de Givenchy (nephew of the fashion legend Hubert) to describe his trademark colour, he said, “tomato-coral.” It’s hard to choose a favourite piece, but a 10-carat Golkonda diamond set on a ceramic band in that signature red, is high on my wishlist. Who else combines stones that extraordinary with ceramic, stainless steel and pebbles picked up at the Home Depot? It’s where the magical meets the mundane. The result is simple, unpretentious and wildly imaginative.
