Tacori jewelry is synonymous with first rate custom jewelry design that combines time-honored tradition with cutting-edge, space-age materials and techniques. Whether you are seeking a set of tungsten carbide wedding rings, palladium wedding bands or men’s jewelry, there are none finer in terms of quality than Tacori rings – and the story of Tacori jewelry is almost as fascinating.
The Odyssey of Haig Tacorian
Armenia, a small Christian nation located in the middle of the Islamic world, has had a long and tragic history; like that of the Jews, the Armenian Diaspora has resulted in the migration of these remarkable people to nearly every place on Earth.
Some Armenians, fleeing the genocidal war waged upon them by the Ottoman Empire in 1915, wound up in Eastern European countries like Romania. Haig Tacorian, whose family is now famous for custom jewelry design, escaped from that country with his family when that country was under the boot heel of the murderous fascist dictator Nicolae Ceau_escu in the 1970s.
Young Tacorian enrolled in college in the U.S. 1975, working his way through as a part-time jewelry salesman. Before long, Haig Tacorian realized he was making more money each week than his father earned a month. The rest, as they say, is custom jewelry design history…
Tacori Jewelry Today
Tacori jewelry is perhaps the most coveted on the market today. Blending the old and the new with materials like tungsten-carbide and palladium and design based on the post-Victorian elegance of Edwardian England and the clean, industrial-inspired Art Deco movement of the 1920s and 30s, Tacori engagement rings and palladium wedding bands are among the finest bridal sets available.
Tacori engagement rings as well as bridal and wedding sets are sold as semi-mounts. Essentially, Tacori sets all the side stones and smaller accent gemstones, but does not mount a center stone (such as a diamond) until the ring has been purchased. This means that when you purchase (for example) a set of their fine tungsten carbide wedding rings, the choice of center stone is yours!
Men’s jewelry at Tacori is limited at present to wedding sets; traditional men’s jewelry such as cufflinks and shirt studs does not appear in the current Tacori jewelry catalogue. If you are planning a proposal and subsequent wedding however, consider Tacori jewelry for value, style and durability.
