Jewelry Highlight: Tiffany & Co
Few brands are as iconic and recognizable as Tiffany & Co and its little blue box. From its chic charm bracelets, to Paloma Picasso pins, to glassware, to diamond engagement rings and wedding bands, Tiffany is synonymous with impeccable taste and often worn by celebrities.
Tiffany’s Long and Storied History
Charles Lewis Tiffany first opened his high-end luxury shop in New York City in 1837. The Tiffany name gained buzz when he purchased the French crown jewels, as well as one of the rarest gemstones in the world, which was later coined the “Tiffany Diamond.” Cut from a 287-carat fancy yellow diamond, the 128.54-carat Tiffany Diamond was worn by Audrey Hepburn to the premiere of “Breakfast at Tiffany’s.” It remains on display at Tiffany’s flagship store in New York City today.
The Tiffany brand has been associated with New York’s most famous socialites, including the Vanderbilts, Astors, Huttons, and Morgans. Tiffany has also had a presence in Washington, D.C., with Presidents Lincoln, Johnson, and Kennedy calling on the brand to provide fine china to be used in White House, and also to provide gifts for visiting dignitaries and jewels for several First Ladies.
Today, Tiffany is valued by customers all over the world. The brand has also been featured in movies and TV shows such as “Sweet Home Alabama,” “Sex & the City” and “Glee.” A commemorative, sterling silver Tiffany necklace has been even the star bling at the Nike Women’s Half Marathon annually in San Francisco; it has been handed out to race participants at the finish line from gentlemen wearing tuxedos.
Caring For Your Tiffany Jewelry
Tiffany jewelry is a worthwhile investment and deserves care and attention to detail. If you decide to use your Tiffany jewelry as collateral for a pawn loan, make sure it is clean and all clasps, hinges, and settings are in good shape and working condition. Also, be sure to include the original box and paperwork. This can go a long way in both determining the legitimacy and overall value of your Tiffany & Co. piece.
