The history of TACORI rings is rooted in the vision of Haig Tacorian, an immigrant from Europe, along with his wife, Gilda Bailian. They joined Gilda’s father to create B&T, a jewelry company specializing in vintage designs, in 1979. After getting married, Gilda and Haig started their own business in downtown Los Angeles.
