Precious Posts is proud to bring you a world renowned jewelry designer each month. For January, we’re pleased to introduce you to A.JAFFE. Read on to learn what makes A.JAFFE jewelry so special.

A stunning ring designed by A.JAFFE sits atop many a new bride’s hand, sparkling at her friends and family. A.JAFFE was founded in 1892 by Abraham Jaffe who set up shop on Maiden Lane in downtown New York City. Today, centered in the heart of the diamond district, the company is known worldwide for its distinctive engagement rings styles.

Sam Sandberg, Chairman and chief inspiration behind the brand today explains what makes an A.JAFFE ring distinctive. “Our quality in all our jewelry is unparalleled; every stone is precisely handset and we use the finest diamonds. All our diamonds are carefully selected, perfectly matched and conflict-free. Our Signature collection features our European shaped shank and trademarked ‘a’ signature, guaranteeing authenticity. The subtle, square shape promises no twisting or turning on your finger.”

The A.JAFFE design team is made of up master jewelers, all with at least a decade of experience. Sandberg and A.JAFFE have worked with the best and most creative designers in the world. Remarkably, it can take up to 80 hours to create a single A.JAFFE ring. “Our goal is to have our brand always boast heritage, quality and innovation.”

Engagement rings are the mainstay of A.JAFFE’s business. “We are the oldest jewelry manufacturer and one of two 19th century jewelers still active in the city,” says Sandberg. “Jaffe has evolved through the years and has stayed at the forefront of bridal jewelry.”

While bridal is a focus, it’s one of many facets of the A.JAFFE collection. The company creates earrings, necklaces, stackable rings and one of a kind creations. Their newest collection is Maps, by A.JAFFE. Each piece is custom made and can be engraved with any mapped location all over the world; a carefully placed diamond marks the spot of a favorite memory.
