Designer Name: Tiffany & Co.
Born-Died: 1837 – Current
Style: Tiffany & Company is an iconic jewellery company that has provided a wealth of unique and lavish styles throughout its many years of existence. They are renowned for their stunning use of diamonds in settings of gold and silver.
Materials Used: Tiffany & Co. (sometimes known as Tiffany's) produces beautiful sterling silver and diamond jewelry, but are also known for their china, glass and stationery as well as a whole host of other household items and personal effects.
History: Tiffany & Co. was founded in 1837 by Charles Tiffany and John Young. Initially the store was a stationery and fancy goods store but in 1853 the company changed its focus to jewelry. Tiffany & Company was unique in that their prices were marked on all of their goods, thus reducing any haggling (which in turn elevated the status of their inventory). They also only accepted cash and no other form of payment.
In the past 150 years, Tiffany & Co. has cemented itself as a leading jewelry design house, known primarily for their highly sought-after engagement rings. Tiffany's is known for popularizing the technique of lifting the diamond in an engagement ring away from the band, which is widely known today as the Tiffany setting.
More recently, Tiffany & Co. has formed the Tiffany & Company Foundation in the year 2000. This foundation issues grants in the arts and tackles environmental issues. Tiffany & Co. continues to thrive as a standard in luxury jewelry sales and is now a publicly traded company on the New York Stock Exchange.
