    Tateossian London: A Symphony of Craftsmanship and Global Elegance

Robert Tateossian, a dynamic figure in the world of luxury accessories, transformed from a City financier into a renowned jewellery designer. He established his namesake brand, Tateossian Ltd, in London in 1990 with a vision to offer distinctive and expressive style options for both men and women. Dubbed the ‘King of Cufflinks’ for his exquisite range, Robert’s creations are a fusion of his international background, passion for luxury, and extensive travels. Born in Kuwait to Lebanese-Palestinian-Armenian parents and educated in French schools in Rome, Robert is a polyglot fluent in seven languages. He pursued international finance at the esteemed Wharton School of Finance in Pennsylvania and carved a successful career in finance with Merrill Lynch, spanning Wall Street and the City of London. After seven years in banking, Robert’s innate creative spirit and an eye for luxury and detail steered him toward jewellery and accessory design. His designs break creative boundaries, blending traditional metals like silver and gold with an array of precious stones and unconventional materials such as carbon fibre and meteorites. His pieces often mirror his fascination with mechanisms, aesthetics, and the unusual. Tateossian has evolved beyond cufflinks; it now encompasses a wide range of men’s, women’s, and unisex accessories, including watches, money clips, rings, necklaces, earrings, and bracelets. Each item showcases the brand’s signature use of innovative materials and designs. Today, Robert Tateossian divides his time between London and New York, travelling the globe to source materials, meet clients and suppliers, and gather inspiration for his latest collections, continuing to redefine the boundaries of luxury jewellery and accessories.

 INNOVATION, DISCOVERY AND THE PURSUIT OF EXCELLENCE At Tateossian, the essence of innovation pulses through every design, blending the unconventional—meteorites, dinosaur bones, copper nuggets—with classic diamonds, gold, and gemstones to create extraordinary, contemporary pieces. Our designs often incorporate elements of movement and surprise, bringing a dynamic and interactive quality to each piece. Signature mechanical creations like the Square Gear Cufflinks and Skull Tourbillon Cufflinks, along with our unique “pop” clasps, are perfect examples of this, serving as testaments to our originality and ingenuity. Inspired by a global tapestry of cultures and materials, each design embarks on a journey of discovery, crafted to express individuality and narrate a story. Meticulous attention to detail is evident in every creation, from brass to gold, ensuring quality that meets our high standards. Committed to sustainability, we use 100% recycled 925 sterling silver, and our 2023 innovations feature eco-friendly materials like recycled glass beads and vegan leather. Tateossian London is more than a brand; it’s a narrative of craftsmanship and global exploration, crafting timeless elegance in each piece, resonating with the soul of the wearer and standing as a beacon of discovery and curiosity.
