Robert Tateossian

From City financier to “King of Cufflinks,” it’s a mighty leap for anyone to make. Not for Robert Tateossian, a man whose international upbringing and love of traveling the world over have provided inspiration in making this a natural progression.

Born in Kuwait and educated at French schools in Rome, Tateossian (who is fluent in seven languages) studied international finance at the prestigious Wharton School of Finance in Pennsylvania, before embarking on a successful career with Merrill Lynch on Wall Street and in the City of London.

After seven years of investment banking, Tateossian was ready to fulfill his ambition to start his own business. His creative flair, love of luxury and keen eye for detail have led him into jewelry and accessory design, setting up offices in London and a workshop in Birmingham—the heart of England’s silversmith industry. His goal has always been to create a line of jewelry and accessories for men and women that reflected his own ethos: stylish, unique, and uncompromising quality.
