Heritage Since 1892
Diamonds can reflect passion or they can ignite it. In the case of Abraham Jaffe, a determined 26 year old New Yorker, diamonds put a twinkle in his eye and they were the rock upon which a great American business was born. In 1892 Abraham Jaffe set up shop on Maiden Lane in downtown New York City. Later he was a pioneer in moving his business to West 47th Street, the area that eventually became an epicenter for the international jewelry world. No matter where he took his business, he initiated a forward thinking approach that carries on to this day.
An A.JAFFE ring is built with exceptional beauty and comfort in mind. It all begins with our master jewelers. Each one has at least ten years of experience and is the recipient of knowledge and skill that has been passed down for generations. Our signature design includes a subtle squaring of the shank to minimize twisting and maximize comfort. It takes up to 80 hours to create a single A.JAFFE ring. You can wear it with the same confidence that was put into its creation.
A.JAFFE uses diamonds mined only in those countries fully participating in the Kimberley Process Certification scheme, an international system enacted to eliminate the trade of "conflict diamonds."
Our heritage of more than 120 years stands as a promise of your jewelry's value now and for many years to come. The lifetime warranty that we include with every A.JAFFE ring is our way of saying that we put as much into creating your ring as you have put into making its selection.
An A.JAFFE ring is greater than the sum of its parts, but its parts are beyond exceptional. Only a small percentage of diamonds possess the level of quality required to be used in one of our creations. It takes an experienced jeweler to recognize an eligible contender. Our gold is 100% nickel free and our 18 karat gold is alloyed with 40% more palladium than that of other jewelers, ensuring that our rings stay bright white for years to come. And because our rings are hypo-allergenic, their fire might startle your eye but they will never irritate your finger.
We understand how personal the engagement ring selection process is. That's why we not only offer complimentary customization of your A.JAFFE ring, we encourage it. We'll refine any of our designs to accommodate the shape and size of your chosen center diamond, and in the precious metal of your choice. It's our way of saying thank you for choosing A.JAFFE.
