This luxurious volume, “Taffin,” showcases more than three hundred pieces designed by the imaginative French jeweler James Taffin de Givenchy. Meeling Wong, Managing Director of Jewellery for Georg Jensen shared that this is the book she can’t wait to to feast her eyes on and read.

However, I do really like Aerin’s Tangire Vanille.” The eau de parfum is made of  Madagascar Vanilla, Italian Bergamot, Bulgarian Rose, and notes of velvety amber, smooth sandalwood and soft musk.

Janet’s designs, including the above “Loved Right Down the Middle Cuff” was recently featured on NBC’s hit show, “This is Us,” which our Dr. Cecilia Ford recently lauded for how it artfully reflects reality.
