This fall, Tiffany & Co. salutes the City That Never Sleeps with its Tiffany Masterpieces Collection – a mix of floral Victoriana, romantic flourishes and Jazz Age dreams.
Art Deco is a style that defines much of the Manhattan skyline. (At another typically elegant Tiffany press preview, it was ingeniously suggested in a few white dots and squares on black walls.) And Art Deco defines part of the Masterpieces collection (pictured above), with diamonds and onyxes zigging and zagging, evoking the bright lights of the big city, diamond-hard against the inky night.
But Art Deco tells only part of New York’s architectural story. The other dominant style in the cityscape is Beaux Arts, the curving, classical yin to Art Deco’s angular, Modernist yang. Tiffany Victoria offers a bouquet of diamond and platinum florets in necklaces, drop earrings and the signature Tiffany key pendant, fit for a queen.
Last but certainly not least are the classic Tiffany bows and infinity symbols, reimagined by design director Francesca Amfitheatrof in diamond form on 18-karat white or rose gold chokers, cuffs and earrings. They’re a romantic way to ring in – and ring out – the holiday season. – Georgette Gouveia
