The famous jewelry manufacturing company Carvin French also know as the iconic Jewelers' Jeweler, was created in New York in 1954 by two french bench jewelers, André Chervin and Serge Carponcy. The partners had come to the United States after having trained and apprenticed by the careful supervision of Parisian Master Jewelers.
The name ''Carvin'' is the combination of the first letters of ''Carponcy'' and ''Chervin''.
The combination of their French ''savoir-faire'' with American vitality, inspiration and creation was an immediate success!
The workshop, established as Carvin French Jewelers started creating magnificent jewels for the most prestigious jewelry houses in the world starting with Raymond Yard, Verdura and Donald Claflin then with giants such as Cartier, Van Cleef & Arpels, Harry Winston, Bvlgari, Tiffany & Co. and Asprey among others.
Serge Carponcy retired in 1983, and André continued as the sole CEO. Today Mr. Chervin directs Carvin French along with his nephew, Sylvain Chervin, and his daughter, Carole Chervin.
The top quality Fine Jewelry of Carvin French is designed and handmade - mainly in 18 karat gold and platinum, using precious, semi precious stones and enameling as well as unusual materials like precious wood - from start to finish in New York City.
Carvin French Hallmark is the ''Maxi Cat'', a cat seated with its long tail wrapped around the front.
This hallmark helps identifying Carvin French jewels and the firm top quality work in the world.
