Cirque du Tacori!

October 20th, 2010

Wow, ya’ll.  I’ve had quite a special little treat this week. I spent several days out in LA with the nations top jewelers to celebrate the launch of Tacori’s new collection!  And as if that wasn’t enough, Tacori was kind enough to let me tag along on a tour of their design studios, and I was able to see just exactly how all those beautiful engagement rings and wedding bands are made!  It was truly an amazing tour.

It takes over 40 people to make one ring!  40 people!

It was fun to see how the production of jewelry in some ways is similar to clothing manufacturing too.

I even got to try a few things…this is me “polishing,” also known as trying really hard not to screw something up.

Tacori’s head designer in his studio.

If you aren’t familiar with Tacori, you should be.  A family owned company with a clear passion for what they do, the Tacorians create absolutely gorgeous pieces (that I think would complement my gowns quite perfectly!).  It’s also inspiring to see the culture of their company up close and how fantastically they treat their employees and partners.

The launch party for the new 18k925 collection of cocktail jewelry was held at the Viceroy in Los Angeles and had a festive Cirque de Tacori theme, with the collection presented on performers representing the different elements.  Incredible!  We even were treated to on the spot circus inspired airbrushing!

Fun to wear a little editorial piece that I made a few months ago for a project.  Love those feathers!  Thinking about doing this in white for the next collection…

My favorite 18k925 piece, for which I now have a new appreciation.

Boy, did we dance it up!  Aren’t those crazy eyes fun?  By the time the party was over, evvveryone had something airbrushed!


It’s safe to say that I thoroughly enjoyed this behind the scenes visit!

Happily Yours,

CH

    I have a Tocari ring and I love it so much. Neat to get a look at how they are made! It’s like a little work of art on my finger. Good stuff!
