Christian Tse opened his own design house in 1996, launching his signature collection of platinum and gold mesh jewelry. Inspired by romance and delicate beauty, he set his sights with a single goal – to present the world with the finest jewelry and the most innovative designs to supplement a woman’s feminine beauty. Combining innovative artistry with a keen focus on perfection in design and manufacturing, the Christian Tse collection was immediately well received and merited the 2000, 2002, and 2015 Couture Award for Best Design in Platinum.
Christian is well recognized by editors, fashion stylists and celebrities who have worn his pieces to prestigious events and on the silver screen. Christian has since expanded his repertoire to include an exclusive collection of diamond jewelry in an intricate micro pave setting that integrates many rare colored diamonds and gemstones incorporating Christian’s unique artistic eye.
A third generation jeweler, Christian learned the art of jewelry design and manufacturing from his father, whose business was designing 24-karat gold jewelry for traditional Chinese weddings. Many of his designs today are inspired by the pieces he crafted with his father as a teenager. While working in the family business, Christian began designing his own jewelry and later attended the Gemological Institute of America (GIA) to further hone his skills.
Since launching his signature line, Christian’s designs have caught the eyes of key influencers in the fashion and entertainment industries. Prominent celebrities like Beyonce, Rhianna, Jennifer Lopez, Carrie Ann Inaba, Sarah Jessica Parker, Brooke Burke, Kim Cattral, Nick Cannon, Michael Yo, Edie Falco, Rachel Bilson , Sharon Osbourne and The Silversun Pickups have worn his pieces to prestigious events and pictorials. His designs have been featured in numerous magazines including Town & Country, Robb Report, Sotheby’s, In Style, W, Departures, Vogue, Elite Traveler, Harper’s Bazaar, Elle, Niche, Modern Jeweler, Veranda and Basel Magazine. Christian Tse pieces have also been featured in popular entertainment productions including American Idol, Dancing with the Stars, Sex and the City, The Sopranos, E! Entertainment and the video for Britney Spears’ smash hit “Overprotected.” Because of Christian’s distinctive collection, he has been chosen by many other notable people and companies as their main client for designs and manufacturing.
