Tamsen Ann Ziff

Tamsen Ann Ziff’s jewelry represents a kind of sparkling travelogue—expressions of Ziff’s journeys fashioned from rare and unusual gems, mineral fragments, and assorted artifacts she’s acquired at various jewelry shows and exhibitions. She began incorporating these pieces into settings of her own design made by artisans in New York City. Ziff displays her vast collection at her own Tamsen Z boutique, which opened on Madison Avenue in 2010, featuring innovative pieces such as an oversized opal cast in lightweight titanium and a Bernd Munsteiner-cut electric-blue Paraíba tourmaline set in an asymmetrical ring and encircled with baguette diamonds.
