The story

The story of Tiffany & Co. began in 1837 on the streets of New York city, when two young gentleman, Charles Lewis Tiffany and John B Young, opened a small store, selling items such as trinkets and stationary.

Over the years they developed a name that has become renowned for dazzling jewellery. Particular milestones of note include the development of the Tiffany setting and the classic diamond solitaire ring, which we all recognise. There was also the famous on-screen debut of the flagship store in ‘Breakfast at Tiffany’s’, portraying the magnificence and desirability of the jewels.

Vintage designs by former designers such as Jean Schlumberger and Angela Cummings are now highly collectable. The company has had iconic collaborations with figures such as Elsa Peretti and Paloma Picasso – fashioning chic, modern jewellery for every occasion.
