The 130th Anniversary Diamond Pavé Tiffany® Setting in Platinum with the Diamond Pavé Tiffany® Setting Band Ring, $3,118,000 and $16,900
In celebration of the 130th anniversary of the Tiffany setting, 130 (and only 130, worldwide) limited edition diamond pavé rings with Tiffany setting are available this year. Featuring the signature six prongs that not only secure but elevate the diamond, this setting revolutionised diamond rings and became the origin story for engagement rings as we know them today.
If historical patterns prevail, this holiday season will be another winter replete with wedding proposals. This ring is patiently waiting to become the origin story for another new couple. When they look back, tell their story about when their union began, their story will start with this ring.
Pictured above, the 130th anniversary diamond pavé Tiffany® setting in platinum and the diamond pavé Tiffany® setting band ring.
Deceptively simple, this design thoughtfully alternates marquise and pear-shaped diamonds in perfect proportion to beautifully frame the face.
Pictured above are the size large Tiffany Victoria® mixed cluster earrings in platinum with mixed-cut diamonds. Marquise diamonds, carat total weight 0.93; pear-shaped diamonds, carat total weight 0.84.
Tiffany & Co. has long had an association with brilliant yellow diamonds ever since Charles Lewis Tiffany purchased the 287.42 carat Tiffany Diamond back in 1878. Cut into a perfect 128.54-carats cushion, this remains one of the world's most priceless gems and attracts thousands of visitors to the New York flagship each year.
Pictured above, the earrings feature square emerald-cut yellow diamonds with a diamond setting in platinum and 18 karat gold.
Paloma Picasso was always struck by how masculine the exterior of the New York flagship Tiffany & Co. is, while its interior is filled with so many unapologetically feminine baubles. Perhaps it was this juxtaposition that helped inspire the Groove series. Marketed as a men's collection, it's really a series for anyone who appreciates style with undertones of reflective intellect. With its graphic lines and eight gentle grooves, this piece is both about strength as much as it is about agility. Equally at home on any gender, the Groove ring was inspired by Paloma's own wedding band.
Pictured above is the wide (9 mm) Groove ring in 18k gold.
When Elsa Peretti first debuted her Diamonds by the Yard design in 1976, she completely revolutionised the traditional idea of a diamond necklace. This understated necklace features enchanting bezel-set round diamonds that look like drops of light surrounding the face and décolleté. A runaway success instantly, Diamonds by the Yard continues to look as fresh and modern today as it did decades ago. Like Elsa herself, this is destined to be a classic.
Pictured above is the Diamonds by the Yard necklace in 18k gold with 15 round brilliant diamonds. 16" long. Carat total weight is 2.70.
Men's Tiffany CT60™ Dual Time 40 mm Watch, $20,100
Based on an archived watch gifted to Franklin Delano Roosevelt in 1945, this Tiffany CT60 watch has both a timeless and vintage feel. While it's entirely Swiss-made, the look and feel is all-American: large open face, subtle use of materials, clean lines.
Pictured above in 18k rose gold with white dial features, gold poudré Arabic numerals, on a black alligator strap. 40 mm case. Self-winding mechanical movement with a power reserve of 40 hours and water resistance to 100 meters/330 feet/10 ATM.
Tiffany T Square Bracelets, $13,600 and CDN $61,000
Created by Tiffany & Co's first female design director, Francesca Amfitheatrof, the Tiffany 'T' series has already entrenched itself in Tiffany's mythology alongside other timeless classics. The strong, clean lines and graphic profile assert a beautiful, quiet clarity to this whole collection.
Pictured above are the Tiffany T square bracelet in 18K white gold with 60 round brilliant pavé diamonds (carat total weight is 0.74) and the Tiffany T square bracelet in 18K white gold with 12 princess-cut diamonds.
The bracelets are available in three sizes; pictured above is size medium (fits wrists up to 6.25").
Tiffany & Co. Schlumberger® narrow bracelet in gold with enamel and diamonds, $74,500
Jean Schlumberger was a visionary designer for Tiffany & Co. whose witty, effervescent creations helped solidify Tiffany's position as a global leader in design and style. He was actually the first Tiffany & Co. designer to be granted the privilege of stamping his own name on his pieces. His highly sculptural and energetic designs were in direct defiance of the flat, geometric lines of the Art Deco, favouring instead a restrained rococo aesthetic influenced heavily by nature especially by the sea.
He and his jewellery were adored by the likes of Elizabeth Taylor and Jacqueline Kennedy, the latter of whom favoured his enamalled bangles, like the one pictured above: 18k gold with red enamel and round brilliant diamonds (carat total weight of 3.00).
This is joy in necklace form. Snug, interlocking daffodil petals, aligned in an undulating singularity drape the neck in brilliant light. Pictured above is the Victoria Mixed Cluster Necklace in platinum with mixed-cut diamonds, 17" long. There are three different cut styles featured, amplifying the faceted details to dazzling effect. The pear-shaped diamonds have a carat total weight of 7.46; the round brilliant diamonds have a carat total weight of 5.85; and the marquise diamonds have a carat total weight 2.52.
