When it comes to engagement rings, Tacori has become a household name. There isn’t a girl who doesn’t immediately envision a sparkly diamond ring, when you say Tacori. Through passion, customization, and attention to detail, the Tacorian family has forged its place as an industry leader. After leaving Europe to start a new life in the Unites States in 1969, patriarch Haig Tacorian and his wife Gilda settled in California, where they started creating fine jewellery with European panache. Today, four decades later, Haig, Gilda, their son Paul and daughter Nadine, along with a few other Tacorian family members, continue to carry on the family tradition of beautiful designs that fuse classic elegance with modern inspiration. We recently had a chance to chat with Paul Tacorian and he spilled all about Tacori’s inspiration, designs, and even offered a few tips and secrets.
