Tateossian London was founded by Robert Tateossian thirty years ago, in 1990, with the aspiration of offering men and women a distinctive way to express their personality and style through unique, refined and meticulously crafted jewellery. A sense of playfulness and free movement are intricately entwined in the brand’s DNA, and are often reflected in the designs, delivering unique yet wearable pieces. Twice a year, Tateossian launches a collection that features a wide range of accessories, from cufflinks to rings, bracelets and necklaces, that all reflect the brand’s core values of innovation, creativity and quality.
INNOVATION For thirty years Tateossian London has pushed the boundaries of jewellery design. Unconventional materials such as meteorites, lunar pieces and gold nuggets are skilfully paired with traditional elements, such as silver, gold and gemstones. The Company is globally celebrated as a Brand that continuously pushes the boundaries of jewellery design, and one of the few to succeed in marrying original designs and the idea of motion.
CREATIVITY The world is Tateossian’s source of inspiration, not only to discover new materials and stones, but more importantly to explore, turning these experiences into beautifully crafted pieces, influences from the world of art, architecture and fashion play a role in this process. It is the uniqueness of the designs that have positioned Tateossian as the brand of choice for those who prefer pieces that reflect and underscore their individual approach to style.
