Taffin have just launched a new and bold collection – The phoenix Collection. James de Givenchy and Fonderie 47 have come together to help remove the presence of assault rifles in Africa. Using the steel of destroyed AK47’s from African war zones, conflict free diamonds and 18k rose gold James has created a unique capsule collection based on the idea of rebirth, captured in the form of an egg. His unique design coupled with this inspiring idea makes for a beautiful collection. Please support this vision, every piece of jewelry purchased destroys hundreds of rifles.
Please visit Taffin or the Fonderie 47 for further information about this collection.
