A lifelong passion for fine gems begins!
In 1963 the Tivon family began a journey of what would become a life-long passion for fine gems and jewellery.
Brought into the trade by a cousin, a diamond merchant working for one of the world’s most powerful diamond traders, Israel Tivon was taught the fine art and very arduous skill of cutting diamonds. After many years of successfully honing his skill, Israel began developing his passion for fine jewellery. He began trading with South African retailers and after falling in love with the beauty of South Africa, he made the decision to make South Africa his new home and base of operations.
A permanent move to South Africa!
In 1976 the home of Tivon Fine Jewellery became South Africa. Known for its beauty and second-to-none diamonds, South Africa proved a good move for TIVON as the business flourished. The company first specialised in bespoke and unique hand-crafted fine silverware, silver and gold jewellery. Then, using his experience in diamonds, Israel began steering the business towards his passion - fine crafted unique gold jewellery set with an array of diamonds and gemstones.
The United Kingdom becomes the new headquarters for TIVON.
In 2003 the next generation permanently entered the scene for what would become a watershed move for TIVON. Ariel Tivon, Israel’s youngest son, decided to join the business and expand it to the United Kingdom. Having had an excellent teacher, Ariel’s ambitions were to take and grow the Tivon legacy. The goal was precise and simple – take TIVON’s passion for gemstones and elevate it by producing the finest gemstone jewellery for an international audience.
With uncompromising standards and a flare for seeking out and finding the most stunning rare gems, Ariel began his work.
HM The Queen’s Diamond Jubilee!
In 2011 TIVON was honoured by being chosen as one of very few Official Partners to HM The Queen’s Diamond Jubilee celebrations in partnership with the Army & Navy Club’s 175th Anniversary. In order to highlight the relationship between royalty, excellence and global prestige, only organisations that had a direct complimentary association were selected to partner with this campaign.
Celebrity & Red Carpet!
In 2013, TIVON’s 50th Golden Anniversary in business, TIVON became a permanent feature in the UK. Supplying some of the most prestigious retailers and private collectors in the country, TIVON began turning its attention to an even more international platform. Gracing the red carpet with celebrities at several award shows, such as the Golden Globes and EMA’s, as well as being featured in some of America’s finest magazines, TIVON began building a client base in the United States and Asia.
First British member of the American Gem Society!
Tivon Fine Jewellery was honoured by being selected as the first ever British Member to the prestigious American Gem Society, a society recognising excellence in quality, high standards and high ethics.
