Tiffany & Co. created diamond engagement rings for men

In the world of opulent engagements, Tiffany & Co’s diamonds are undoubtedly among the most coveted. And while the leading luxury jeweler offers an extensive collection of wedding rings for both men and women, Tiffany’s engagement ring selection has never catered to men — until now.

New York-based jeweler Tiffany & Co has been the preeminent destination for diamond engagement rings for nearly two centuries, but the luxury retailer’s latest collection – a line of sleek diamond engagement rings for men – just may be its most groundbreaking concept to date.

Launching this spring, the renowend jeweler unveiled its foray into men engagement rings with The Charles Tiffany Setting, a collection named after founder Charles Lewis Tiffany. The debut collection features rings with a signet silhouette design, settings in platinum and titanium and a bold solitaire diamond at the head.

Founded in 1837 and recently acquired by LVMH, Tiffany & Co is known and loved for the solitaire diamond engagement that debuted in 1886 and the unmistakable Tiffany Blue Box®, a symbol of love and commitment for generations. The Charles Tiffany Setting collection marks the first time the 184-year-old iconic jewelry retailer has made a diamond engagement ring available for men, though the brand has long offered wedding bands for men.

Following in the footsteps of its iconic sister, The Charles Tiffany Setting honors the jeweler’s long-standing legacy in love and inclusivity, paving the way for new traditions to celebrate our unique love stories and honor our most cherished commitments to one another.

The diamond engagement rings will be available in black and gray titanium and platinum with emerald cut, square emerald cut, and round diamonds that can go up to five carats in size. The band, inspired by the band on the iconic Tiffany® Setting, features contemporary, architectural beveled edges. Departing from more traditional wedding bands and instead opting for a contemporary signet silhouette, powerful contouring accentuates the modern profile across each iteration — and of course, the striking center diamond harkens back to the brand’s legacy in fine jewelry creations.

The round brilliant arrivals boast a sleek, knife-edge – a sartorial reference to the label’s signature Tiffany Setting ring – while emerald-cut diamonds rest atop a streamlined construction with architecturally oblique sides.

The first official release from The Charles Tiffany Setting offers two different cuts, round brilliant and emerald, in up to five carats.

As part of Tiffany’s diamond traceability commitment, each diamond in the men’s engagement collection will arrive with full craftsmanship certification, which includes details regarding the diamond’s exact origin as well as the cut, polish, grade, and quality.

Both famous and everyday men alike have increasingly become more open about embracing diamond jewelry, with many brands like Boucheron dedicating entire collections to gender neutral diamond jewelry designs. And with an increase in demand for engagement rings for men, Tiffany’s new collection is just one way the brand aims to support inclusivity and expressions of love with fine jewelry.

What is your favorite? The Charles Tiffany Setting collection will be available to purchase in May 2021 at Tiffany & Co boutiques worldwide. For more information, come into the beautiful world of Tiffany & Co.

Mesmerizing Beauty: Jean Schlumberger’s Fantastical Designs

Big, bold and boundary breaking. These are the hallmarks of Jean Schlumberger’s unique creations. One of the most prolific designers of the 20th century, the visionary elevated the presentation of precious metals and gemstones to new heights.

Widely considered an artistic genius, Schlumberger’s innovative designs remain a cherished collection at Tiffany & Co.

More than 50 of his masterpieces are available for purchase at Tiffany & Co’s private Blue Book Collection preview in China this April. They will be included along with more than 500 high jewelry pieces in Shanghai before traveling to other cities across the globe.

Showcasing custom-cut diamonds and colorful paillonné enamel nestled in gold and platinum, Schlumberger’s fantastical expressions are love letters to his affinity for flora and fauna. “I try to make everything look as if it were growing, uneven, at random, organic, in motion”.

Tiffany & Co White, Yellow, and Red Gold Tiffany T1

American luxury jewelry giant Tiffany & Co has just launched its new T1 collection, which features some of the label’s most iconic designs that have been key to the house since the early 1980s. Fronted by none other than Adut Akech, the campaign highlights the signature pieces that are both luxury and timeless, arriving in 18k yellow gold as well as 18k white and rose gold styles.

Tiffany & Co launched its #TiffanyT1 collection earlier this year to much success, but fans were left wondering if there were ever going to be pieces that came in classic metals like white or yellow gold. Well, the good news is that the American luxury jeweller has finally unveiled all-new pieces, specifically bracelets and rings.

Now, before diving into what’s currently available in your favorite Tiffany & Co boutique, here’s a little background history of how the Tiffany T1 came to be. Designed by Reed Krakoff, the brand’s Chief Artistic Officer, the jewellery is known for its simple and minimalistic style, expounding on the iconic ‘T’ motif that forms a perfectly round circle to represent individual strength and self-empowerment.

The bevelled bar design also gives the ‘T’ added oomph, providing an extra level of visual interest as it encircles the fingers (ring) and wrists (bracelet). The collection comprises pieces that come in full 18K gold, but Tiffany & Co. has also included versions decked out in precious diamonds, perfect for ladies (and men!) who love T…..

The rings will come in two models, the Tiffany T1 Narrow Ring and Tiffany T1 Wide Ring. As for the bracelets, they will come in 3 sizes, small, medium and large for the Tiffany T1 Narrow Hinged Bangle and Tiffany T1 Wide Hinged Bangle.

Tiffany & Co, they Are Still In

As European, we have seen America very differently in recent years than before. Much has changed. And usually not positive. Ook wanneer het gaat om klimaat veranderingen. Although it is so obvious what is going on that it is still denied. We think its bizar. What happened to the country where so many innovations came from? Little is left of the iconic American auto industry, you cannot live on old successes, no matter how beautiful the V8 engines are.

Now, more than ever, it’s time to go all in. It’s time to invest in a 100% clean energy economy. We believe that our company and the global economy will be stronger in a low-carbon future, which is why we have pledged to reach net-zero greenhouse gas emissions and increase climate resilience by 2025. 

Tiffany & Co

How nice it is to find out that there are companies that do innovate, and do not put their heads in the sand. On the fifth anniversary of the Paris Agreement, American jeweler Tiffany & Co. is proud to join the call for a national mobilization on climate and recovery.

It is not the first time that Yakymour is proud of Tiffany & Co because they stand up for what is right, and do right. For that, we love Tiffany & Co.! Come into the beautiful world of Tiffany & Co.

Tiffany & Co Gives Its Iconic Bone Cuffs A Fresh Coat Of Colour

Tiffany-and-Co-Elsa-Peretti-Color-Bone-Cuff-Banner

Elsa Peretti’s designs for American jeweller Tiffany & Co. are rightfully iconic. But none, in this writer’s opinion, more so than the Bone cuff, first introduced in the early 70’s. This year, Tiffany & Co. is celebrating its 50th anniversary, the house’s Elsa Peretti Bone Cuffs – originally available in yellow gold, rose gold, and sterling silver – are now available in a special edition collection reimagined in vibrant red, blue and green finishes over copper, a nod towards the now 80-year-old designer’s love of colour.

The day Elsa Peretti became a part of Tiffany & Co was the day we entered a new era in our history of design innovation. describes

Michael J. Kowalski, former chairman and CEO of Tiffany & Co.

If you are not familiar with the Elsa and Tiffany story, here’s how it goes: in the ’70s, America’s leading fashion designer Roy Halston Frowick introduced his long-time friend and frequent collaborator Elsa Peretti to the jewellery house. She already had a number of accolades to her name, including the 1971 Coty American Fashion Critics’ Award for Jewellery. In 1974, the two began a formal working relationship, her debut collection sold out on the day it was launched, elevating sterling silver to luxury status overnight. The pieces Peretti designed for them, like the Bone, Bean, Mesh, Diamonds by the Yard, among many others, have since gone on to become iconic and legendary – not light words to be sure, but totally apt.

Tiffany-and-Co-Elsa-Peretti-Bone-Cuff-Halston-Show

Elsa Peretti modelling in a Halston fashion show in the 1970s, wearing her own jewellery designs.

The Bone cuff is perhaps chief among them. When it was first released, it completely bucked the convention of jewellery design. Instead of architectural lines and flashy gemstones, Peretti looked towards biomorphism and a sleek sensuality inspired by organic forms. Peretti credits the inspiration to a recurring childhood story of symptomatic curiosity. As a young girl, she would repeatedly pocket a human bone from the 17th-century Capuchin Crypt in Rome, only to be told off by her mother and told to return it.

Some designs are instant classics that will never age; others are provocative and positively ahead of their time. Elsa Peretti’s ergonomic Bone cuff, designed for Tiffany & Co. in the 1970s, manages to straddle both categories.

That’s perhaps indicative of Peretti’s penchant for being inspired by the curious, the unexamined and the unexpected. One of the earliest wearers of the Bone cuff was Liza Minelli, who was urged by Halston to try the style in place of flashy jewellery. Minelli describes her attraction to the cuff as immediate, being drawn almost innately to the feminine sensuality of the design.

Tiffany-Co-Iconic-Elsa-Peretti-Bone-Cuffs-3

The Bone cuff is also one of the finest examples of Elsa Peretti’s design philosophy. A believer in the purity of line, purpose and essential elegance, the cuff strips away the glitz and glamour for understated sculptural beauty. What might seem offhandedly simple is actually a carefully researched and designed piece of work – to wit, the cuffs are shaped and designed differently and specifically for the left and right wrists. They sit comfortably on the arm, almost an extension of the wearer’s own form – a hidden ergonomic element to the artfulness of the design.

Peretti also noted the influence that Casa Milà, Antoni Gaudí’s striking 1912 building in Barcelona with an undulating façade and surrealist sculptural roof, had on the design. Compare the two, and the curves seem synonymous.

There’s also, of course, all the attractive associations with Elsa Peretti that come with the Bone cuff. In times when creativity seems challenging, it’s comforting to recall an alleged Peretti quote: “If the work is not coming clearly and somewhat quickly, you must stop. You must rest so that you can fulfill the vision correctly”. Couple that with the artistry of her life’s work (her designs for Tiffany & Co. are in the permanent collections of numerous art museums), and you’ve got a totemic objet d’art with a dazzling history around it.

To celebrate the 50th anniversary of the Tiffany & Co. Bone cuff designed by Peretti, the jewel has been given a modern update through colour. In a nod to Peretti’s love of bright colours, these new editions of the copper Bone cuffs have been been lavished with electric reds, blues and greens. Each of these special edition cuffs features a celebratory inscription on the inside of the design. Worn on both wrists, of course.

Jewellery should be personal, dear and cherished, and these are the kinds of energies I want close to me. Worn on both wrists, of course.

Elsa Peretti

The 50th anniversary celebrations will continue throughout the year, with new additions to the Bone cuff collection being launched in the coming months. In September, Tiffany & Co will launch an 18ct yellow gold Bone cuff with green jade accents. Silver editions with black jade or turquoise details will follow in October.
