For many in the U.S., the word “Tiffany” has been synonamous with desirable jewelry for generations. Long a favorite among New Yorkers, the Tiffany & Co. flagship store on Fifth Avenue became a destination on par with Rockefeller Center in 1961 with the movie “Breakfast at Tiffany’s.”

In the opening scene, Audrey Hepburn, wearing an evening gown with several strands of chunky pearls draped down her back, stares into the jewel-box windows built into the store’s granite walls. Her character, Holly Golightly, based on a 1958 novella by Truman Capote, turns to Tiffany's whenever she felt anxious. It’s “the quietness and the proud look of it,” she says. “Nothing very bad could happen to you there.”

Jewelry produced by Tiffany is fairly easy to identify by its marks. Since the U.S. doesn’t have an assay system, the firm sends all its jewelry to London to be inspected and stamped by the British assay office. Though its jewelry and tableware date to the mid-19th century, Tiffany goods are fairly easy to identify, mainly because it’s one of the only U.S-based jewelry houses that produces hallmarked pieces.

Tiffany & Co.

Tiffany Beginnings

The company was founded in 1837, when Charles Lewis Tiffany and John P. Young opened a “fancy goods” store on Broadway, adding jewelry and silver soon after. In 1853, Tiffany took over and the newly-dubbed Tiffany & Co. showcased its jewels, to rave reviews, at the Exhibition of the Industry of All Nations in New York, the first world’s fair held in the U.S. “Surpases anything of the kind ever seen before in this country,” wrote one columnist.

From the beginning, Tiffany & Co. goods embodied three distinct characteristics, according to Tiffany & Co. archivist Annamarie V. Sandecki: “inspiration from either nature or the art of other cultures, innovative technique, and a reliance on unusual gemstones and metals.”

Edward C. Moore

Influenced by his own fascination with various foreign cultures, Tiffany’s first chief designer, Edward C. Moore set the design standard for the firm, touring silver-making workshops throughout Europe and pulling motifs from Islamic, Hindu, Persian, Japanese, Native American, and Celtic art. Moore left his mark most on tableware, such as this hammered silver pitcher with copper leaves, gold vines and mokume gourds in the “Japanesque” style, c. 1878, which sold for $50,000 at Sotheby’s New York in January 2013. Moore also became known for refining the firm’s use of enamelling on metals, something that would become a signature of Tiffany jewels.

G. Paulding Farnham

Encouraged by Moore, George Paulding Farnham became Tiffany’s first celebrity designer, establishing the firm’s signature floral designs with his enameled orchids, such as this one from 1890, with petals enameled in yellow and orange enamel, accented with rose-cut diamonds, which sold at Sotheby’s New York for $173,000 in December 2013.

George Frederick Kunz

A defining aspect of Tiffany jewelry by the turn of the 20th century was its unique gemstones. Under the direction of chief gemologist George Frederick Kunz, who traveled the world in search of unusual gems to design jewelry around, Tiffany moved beyond conventional diamonds, pearls and carved agate cameos, and began to incorporate Australian opal, aquamarine, an unusual colored stones – increasingly, gems mined Stateside, such as oblong pearls from the Mississippi River and Montana sapphires.

Paloma Picasso

Daughter of Pablo Picasso and Françoise Gilot, Paloma Picasso brings a bold Italian-style sense of color to Tiffany’s contemporary collections. She likes to combine shapes and colors such as pink tourmaline, citrine, amythest, and aquamarine, usually mounted in gold.

“Bird on a Rock” brooch of citrine of pavé diamonds with ruby eye mounted in gold, c. 1995, signed Tiffany & Co. Schlumberger, sold for $75,397 on estimate of $21,000-27,000 at Christie’s Paris, December 2013.

Elsa Peretti

In the ‘60s and ‘70s, Tiffany began to expand its reach to more affordable, fashion-forward jewelry. Central among its contemporary designers, Elsa Peretti specializes in sleek, modern forms crafted in sterling silver. Her Bone cuffs looked just right with a simple, form-fitting Halston frock in the 1970s and continue to sell well today.

Designed in the 1970s, Elsa Peretti’s Bone cuffs are still sold through Tiffany in a variety of metals, ranging from $495 for a small one in black-carbon over copper to $23,000 for a large 18k gold cuff. The British Museum added the Bone cuff to its permanent 20th century collection in 2009.
