12 Dazzling Contemporary Jewels by Tiffany & Co.

  • I Do!
    The name Tiffany has become synonymous with engagement rings with classic designs and superb quality. The ring featured here is set with a Lucida-cut diamond weighing 3.40 carats. Developed in 1999, this unique mixed-cut has a charming quality than can only be possessed by a Tiffany& Co. engagement ring.

  • March of the Penguins
    The world of flora and fauna has provided a consistent source of inspiration for Tiffany & Co. Here, this ‘Emperor Penguin’ brooch, decorated with diamonds, spessartite garnets and black lacquer, watches carefully over a cultured pearl cleverly disguised as an egg.

  • New Gems
    In the early twentieth century, American mineralogist George Kunz worked with Tiffany & Co. to discover a vibrant world of previously unearthed gems. In 1910, he uncovered a rose-hued beryl in Madagascar and proposed it be named morganite, in honour of his friend and Tiffany patron, J.P Morgan. In this floral bracelet, pink tourmalines and diamonds accompany morganite for a truly stunning combination of colours.

    Pink tourmaline, morganite and diamond bracelet, Tiffany & Co. Estimate $30,000–50,000. To be offered in Fine Jewels on 17 October in New York. 

  • The Schlumberger Legacy
    Jean Schlumberger joined Tiffany & Co. in 1956, and his fantastical jewels quickly gained an impressive following of legendary jewelry collectors such as Diana Vreeland, Mrs. Paul Mellon and Babe Paley. Much of his creations, such as the one seen here, transform phenomenon seen in the natural world into stunning works of art, always completed with a hint of whimsy and playfulness.

    Gem-set and enamel clip-brooch, Schlumberger for Tiffany & Co. Estimate HK$150,000–220,000 ($19,305–28,314). To be offered in Magnificent Jewels & Jadeite on 3 October in Hong Kong. 

  • Dripping in Diamonds
    From the time Charles Lewis Tiffany first opened his New York City shop in 1837, his name has always been synonymous with luxury. Upon the abdication of King Louise-Philippe of France in 1848, Tiffany purchased a collection of the French crown jewels, which created a frenzy amongst his American clientele. The press at the time dubbed Tiffany ‘The King of Diamonds,’ and his name remains associated with said gemstones today.

    Diamond bracelet, Tiffany & Co. Estimate $30,000–50,000. To be offered in Fine Jewels on 17 October in New York. 

  • The Blue Book
    Each year, Tiffany & Co. publishes its much anticipated Blue Book, which presents the most current, exquisite one-of-a-kind jewels on offer. This brooch, reminscent of earlier designs by Paulding Farnham, appeared in the 2008-2009 Tiffany & Co. Blue Book; it took more than five months to create this lifelike floral design.

  • Brighter Than The Sun
    Named after the Spanish word for sun, the Tiffany ‘Soleste’ Collection was created to highlight the vibrant array of gemstones and coloured diamonds the design house offers. Each jewel features gemstones circled by multiple rows of diamonds, evoking how the sun is the centre of our solar system.

  • First Sight on Tanzanite
