Since its establishment in 1892 as a 19th century jewelry house in early New York, A. Jaffe remains one of the exclusive brands of bridal and luxury jewelry that are catered by the finest American jewelers. For 122 years, A. Jaffe is respected as a key contributor to the evolution of engagement rings in the country. The company created some of the first solitaire and multi-stone engagement rings that were sold in the United States. As remarkable as the designs are the materials themselves, which A. Jaffe continues to scrutinize and inspect with the greatest care to ensure the quality of each precious gem. The diamonds are rare, constituting only .5% of the diamond rocks mined every year. The shanks and mountings that hold these treasured stones are just as valuable. They are made from hypoallergenic nickel-free Palladium alloy, durable beyond lifetimes, perfect for precious family heirloom pieces. The A. Jaffe heritage lives on, just as the stories represented by each ring live on in unfading elegance.
Shreve & Co. in Palo Alto and San Francisco are authorized retailers for A. Jaffe.
