Tiffany & Co. presents a preview of the 2013 Blue Book. Collectors and connoisseurs worldwide eagerly await this annual presentation of exclusive jewels. The new collection is a tribute to the energy and optimism of the Jazz Age, the era that transformed fashion and culture and gave rise to American glamour.
Then as now, Tiffany designed the jewels for the sleek new silhouettes inspired by Art Deco and a shimmering nightlife at the summit of style. Housed in the Tiffany Archives, these legendary jewels are the basis of new creations that bring modern glamour brilliantly to life.
Tiffanyâ€™s legacy of Art Deco design favored brilliant white diamonds punctuated with colorful gemstones in settings of softer, more contoured lines. Necklaces and diamond drop earrings share the sublime grace of New York Cityâ€™s deco skyscrapers. Sparkling stones contrast with hand carved onyx and form dazzling fans on black lacquer. The collection also celebrates gemstones Tiffany brought to the forefront of fashion, as well as gems the company introduced to the world throughout its history.
