Tiffany on display with Vision & Virtuosity




Vision & Virtuosity: can you define Tiffany’s work, which has lasted for almost two centuries, like this? The American Maison, now part of the LVMH group, thinks so and has organized an exhibition that arrives at the Saatchi Gallery in London. On display are over 400 items from the Maison’s archives: for lovers of the brand it is an opportunity to see pieces that have entered the history of jewelry up close.

The collection documents Tiffany’s work from its founding in New York City (in 1837) to today. High jewelery with historical pieces, the famous Tiffany shop windows and the recently acquired Empire Diamond of over 80 carats, up to important memorabilia of popular culture such as the original screenplay of the film Breakfast at Tiffany’s.

Vision & Virtuosity tells the extraordinary story of one of the oldest luxury jewelers, through its nearly 200-year history of pioneering creativity, legendary craftsmanship and sourcing of the world’s most extraordinary diamonds and precious stones. This exhibition perfectly captures our long heritage of combining tradition and modernity. We are thrilled to share the world of Tiffany & Co. and our unique style in fine jewelry with London.

The exhibition is divided into seven stages. Each explores different themes that have influenced the life of the Maison: from the work of the founder, Charles Lewis Tiffany, to the jewels of designers such as Jean Schlumberger and Elsa Peretti. There is also a section dedicated to the Blue Book high jewelery collection, a room centered on Tiffany’s legacy in the world of love, with the iconic solitaire ring featuring Tiffany Setting in 1886 (which has six thin prongs instead of four). Finally, space for the film that contributed to the myth, Breakfast at Tiffany’s, and great diamond-based creations, including the aforementioned 128.54-carat Tiffany Diamond.
