Transformation happens, as if by magic, in the quiet places that we so easily overlook, where all is still. But just below the surface, a new and brilliant world unfolds. Cocooned in silence, shapes shift and transform, slipping from one element into another. Intricate treasures are unveiled. Life unfurls, stretching, pushing vigorously up until stillness bursts into extraordinary beauty.
This year it looks like the legacy of Tiffany & Co. has come to another bright flash, bringing the annual collection out from behind the sheet glass of the Fifth Avenue store in New York. Prepare yourself for some unique jewellery specifically wrought to be treasured.
What makes this Blue Book even more exciting than the last is the return of the Design Director, Francesca Amfitheatrof, hence the continued art nouveau theme, rooted in the natural world and enriched by various underwater motifs.
When asked about the inspiration behind this theme, Amfitheatrof responded by saying:
‘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.’
A bracelet of interwoven diamond ribbons, offset by the subtle sea and sky shades of tanzanites, aquamarines and tourmalines. The Blue Book, first published in 1845, is an annual showcase of Tiffany & Co.’s finest craftsmanship and inspired artistry. A catalyst for wonder and dreaming, it introduces the world to the very best of everything Tiffany stands for and challenges the imagination with fantastical couture jewels that push the limits of possibility and creativity.
