Tiffany & Co. has been abuzz with activities since its acquisition by LVMH at the start of the year. While the world watches on to see what exciting effects a top management change will cause at the beloved American luxury house in the upcoming months (not least the recent appointment of creative maverick Ruba Abu-Nimah as its Executive Creative Director to drive its vision), for now, it’s still business as usual with the unveil of its 2021 Blue Book Collection: Colors of Nature.
Comprising 128 designs that range from delicate diamond earrings to timepieces entirely cloaked in precious stones, this year’s collection sees Jean Schlumberger’s emblematic creations presented alongside Tiffany high jewellery designs in a riot of colours. From legacy gems like tanzanite and kunzite (which Tiffany & Co discovered), to coveted stones like Columbian emeralds and priced sapphires, the collection showcases an impressive 35 varieties of gems that have been used to paint nature across sky, land, sea and the earth. The collection will make its debut in Shanghai early this month and will be showcased alongside roughly 470 other high jewellery designs before making its way to other cities across the globe. Here’s a sneak preview of what to expect from the high jewellery collection.
