With no clue about diamonds, you could be eyeing a complete engagement ring. But having learned of the 4Cs, all the focus diverts to the diamond and how you can get the best bang for the buck!
And after discovering more, you probably know by now that a superb ring setting can tremendously amplify an already-excellent diamond.
A superb diamond paired with a Tacori Designer Ring is like putting a star on a pedestal with the same outstanding caliber. We know both are revered just by the ring of their titles – the diamond as the ultimate symbol of love and commitment, and Tacori as an icon in the designer jewelry world.
The Origin Story – A True American Dream
In 1969, Haig Tacorian immigrated from dictator-ruled Armenia with his wife, Gilda. They found a new home in Glendale, California where Haig would start a groundbreaking company that would forever change the world of fine jewelry design.
After four decades of success, he still serves as Tacori’s CEO while his son Paul and daughter Nadine together with other family members uphold the tradition by going beyond modern shopper’s needs.
All Tacori jewelry is made in America – handcrafted in California by some of the finest jewelers in the world. The care and attention to detail evident in every Tacori ring is inspired by Haig’s original vision. An uncompromising passion for intricately crafted artisan jewelry truly reflects the family legacy.
To achieve utmost quality, the best jewelry designers partner with trusted retailers. So, they can focus on what they do best which is creation. By allowing Whiteflash to handle retail, Tacori is able to keep making one-of-a-kind heirlooms and reflect the Tacorian or Californian essence of anything is possible.
Design, Quality, and Environmental Footprint
Fusing the Edwardian and Art Deco eras, these engagement rings evoke a combination of grace and symmetry. They use elegant filigree and geometric shapes making every piece a masterful blend of the old and the new.
This exquisite artistry with precise science is known as the Tacori Touch. And since each piece is handcrafted by an artisan, you wouldn’t see two rings that look the same. They take pride in producing engagement rings that are individually shaped by a number of experts for innumerable hours!
The representation of old and new isn’t just seen in the design, but on the process as well, as the latest technology and human craftsmanship are equally incorporated to achieve their signature look.
As for the packaging, you can say that the same level of expertise is brought to life with their stunning patented ring box:
To further cement their aim for highest quality, they also participate in the Kimberley Process like most top brands that take the ethical road. This means that the diamonds they use in their rings are certified conflict-free and are legitimately mined, sourced, and polished.
Uniquely Handcrafted Collections
What I like about Tacori is that they have a number of collections with different designs and styles to choose from. So, you’ll see simple wedding rings to intricately-styled engagement rings. And even though the young brides are the inspiration, the Old-European feel also appeals to older shoppers.
Below are their 13 collections including the wedding rings and bands selection at Whiteflash. Click each one to know more!
The Tacori Blooming Beauties Collection features accent diamonds surrounding and embellishing the center stone like a flower unfolding.It’s Tacori’s ingenious take on the double halo design, perfected and presented in this splendid assortment. As the skilled Tacori artisans like to put it, they’ve given the centre diamond a “double dose of bloom”, making it visually unfurl into a full display of sparkling radiance.
Coupled with the sturdy foundation of a Classic Crescent, this meticulously engineered double bloom infuses each piece from these ‘Blooming Beauties’ with the quintessential Tacori charm, just as a lantern illuminates a dark night.
Imagine a sunflower unfolding its petals at dawn; two layers of accent diamonds encircle the central diamond, creating a magnified, dazzling impression. It’s almost as if you have your personal sunflower, shining just for you.
In this collection, you have the freedom to match your style. Opt for the ‘High to the Sky’ profile, reminiscent of a lone flower stretching towards the sun, or choose ‘Low with a lot of Show’ for a more grounded profile that doesn’t skimp on brilliance. Either way, you’ll have a Tacori masterpiece that sparkles as bright as your love.
Distinctively Tacori, the Classic Crescent Collection consists of designs that are timeless. The vintage style crescent design that Tacori is so famous for is on full display.

Whether nestled on ribbon bands or the classic straight ones, the sparkling diamonds just steal the show.

What I genuinely appreciate about this collection is its French-cut settings. They’ve intelligently reduced the metal quotient, allowing the spotlight to shine unabashedly on the diamonds. Because let’s be honest, who wouldn’t want more of those dazzling sparklers, right?
In essence, the Petite Crescent collection has brilliantly delivered a delicate balance of understated elegance and high-impact sparkle. Now that’s what I call a winning combination!

The Tacori Reverse Crescent design features a playful twist on the crescent motif. It’s Tacori’s masterpieces with the Classic Crescent flipped it on its head to whip up this wild collection.

The Tacori Ribbon Collection, as the name implies, features design elements that flow and merge in curving fluid forms creating a sumptuous and feminine look. We see it as an elegant testament to the beautiful fusion of two lives by Tacori.
The designs in this collection feature a duo of diamond-studded bands, artfully entwined in an eternal dance, much like your journey together. Imagine two ribbons pirouetting in a graceful ballet, their separate paths of diamond pave converging to pose the all-important question: “Will You?”
For those with a penchant for the glittering and grand, Tacori’s line of designer engagement rings is just the right blend of choice and taste. But let’s spill the tea on the crème de la crème of this dazzling array – the Royal T Collection.
Now, imagine Tacori rolling out a red carpet and assembling their entire “royal court” of designs. They then handpick the most adored ones and supercharge the intricate details, exclusively sculpting them for more substantial diamonds. We’re talking serious rock sizes here – from 2.0 to a whopping 6.0 carats (or more if you’re feeling particularly extra!).
Sadly, if you’re in the market for smaller sizes, this isn’t your stop. The RoyalT Collection is the grand, towering triple-decker sandwich in a world of bite-sized sliders. It’s designed to be the “best of the best”, or in the designer’s words, for the woman who desires to sport “The Only Ring in the Room”.
Available in platinum, yellow, and rose gold, this collection can also serve as an artful canvas for a fancy coloured centre diamond. It’s a show-stopper, aimed at the connoisseur who wouldn’t settle for anything less than top-tier quality and design. So, if you’re all about making your ring do the talking (and perhaps a bit of singing and dancing), look no further than the RoyalT Collection.
The Tacori Sculpted Crescent collection features models that have a bold profile view of the trademark crescent in solid, high polish form. Tacori is taking its signature crescent design for a joyride into the modern era. The result? A collection that features our beloved crescent, but this time, it’s donning a new avatar – forged in metal.
It’s a more structured take on the classic design, like giving the crescent a crash course in architecture. So, if you’ve ever wondered what happens when the quintessential Tacori touch takes a walk on the contemporary side, this collection is your ticket to find out!

Tacori 3995 – 4995 (Tacori Complete)
The Tacori 3995 – 4995 Collection is the ultimate answer to the shopper who wants to keep it simple! This collection features five great styles pre-set with a high-quality center diamond. With half carat center diamonds, they come complete for $3995, or step up to a three quarter carat diamond for $4995.
With so many variations to choose from, the main thing I noticed was how the makers have animated each design to best exhibit a diamond’s brilliance – no matter what size, shape, or color.
Tacori may not be for you if you’re on a tight budget and prefer a plain band to set your diamond. But let’s be honest, you can’t really put a price on the love for the craft!
If you live for custom masterpieces and all that jazz, then their intricate stylings and grandness are very well justified, in my opinion. This one is polarly far from a mass-produced ring! Tacori is a premium designer brand and is still a force to be reckoned with throughout the years.
