 Never-Ending Story Of Jeweler’s Craftsmanship and Creativity

Since its inception, Tiffany’s Blue Book has pushed the boundaries of imagination. In  1867, Tiffany was the first U.S. firm to win an award for excellence in silverware at the Exposition Universelle in Paris, France. In 2018, within the winter theme, Tiffany’s jewelers introduced the never-before-seen ice motif. The ice “look” was achieved by  cutting each individual diamond into jagged shapes to mimic an iceberg adrift on a sea of platinum, which required the most skilled craftsmen to study the beauty of irregularity and render it in diamonds.

Vibrant Colors and Never-Before-Seen Gems

While every year the Blue Book brings new designs, textures, ideas--much like haute couture fashion shows--there is still some commonality in all the 150+ Tiffany’s annual catalogs. Namely, introduction of out-of-the-box color palette. Tiffany has introduced and popularised numerous never-before-seen gemstones, for example, tsavorite, Kunzite, and morganite. Tiffany’s color gradation has often ranged from intensely saturated colored gemstones to white diamonds, symbolizing Tiffany’s heritage of sourcing the world’s rarest diamonds and colored gemstones of unsurpassed quality.
