Taline Arslanian is the founder and creative director of neptune. Born in Soho, New York, she is a byproduct of her historically artistic surroundings and a family legacy of diamond sourcing and manufacturing. Immersed in art and culture from infancy, Taline’s artistic upbringing and family history led her to practice sculpture. She attended the Gemological Institute of America, becoming double certified in diamond grading and production/design. To further inform her artistic practice, she studied goldsmithing at The Contemporary Jewelry school in Florence, Italy. 

She works closely with skilled artisans who fuse ancient and modern techniques to create one-of-a-kind and limited edition fine, hand-made jewelry.
