To celebrate The Tiffany & Co. Blue Book collection, last week in Beijing a special exhibition was held to showcase the historical revolution of Tiffany & Co. Close to 200 piece of limited edition jewelry are shown during the exhibition, about 70 new designs are being released for the first time.
The jewelry is the vision of design director Francesca Amfitheatrof, who utilizes the finest diamonds and colorful gemstones to capture the brilliant world that unfolds in nature and in one breathtaking moment, bursts into an extraordinary beauty. “In this collection, we are taking you on a journey through nature. From the deep ocean, we float to the edge of the water where stillness reigns. In this world, cocooned in calm, transformation occurs. Life changes, and nature reaches to the surface and takes its first breath of air. It’s a story about evolution and all that is possible in silence and peace, where nature plays its magic and creates the mysteries of the world we live in.”
Collectors and connoisseurs covet Blue Book for its fancy color diamonds, as well. Tiffany Yellow Diamonds radiate like the sun that renews all life. Its warmth and limitless energy are reflected in rings with a 2.16-carat Fancy Intense Yellowish Green diamond and a 4.13-carat Fancy Yellow Green diamond with white diamond baguettes.
Blue Book also features brilliant creatures that evolve in myriad and wondrous ways. Among these creations are a trio of starfish in a cuff of diamonds, sapphires and tsavorites; an Octopus of diamond tentacles surrounding an outsize baroque pearl; and earrings of emerald-cut tanzanites that anchor fanciful fish of green tourmalines. Collected in the 2016 Blue Book, these consummate jewels are in harmony both with nature and Tiffany’s unparalleled design heritage.
