Kiss, kiss

Don’t be surprised if you’re bussed when you visit the Private Salon at Tiffany & Co. in The Westchester. The silver and jewelry emporium has selected a number of its stores to display a sculpted chandelier, based on a 19th-century Austrian design and accented with Tiffany Blue,  that mimics a sprig of mistletoe (with the pearls perhaps suggesting snow drops?).

This season, Tiffany is offering a piece of the plant that will last forever in the form of a brooch whose vibrant green Tsavorite leaves emerge from stems of 18-karat white gold caressed by snowy pearls.  The $53,000 pin ensures that you’ll never go a day without a kiss.

Of course, Tiffany is about a lot more than precious metals and stones, and that becomes apparent as we head deeper into the season and our thoughts turn to (can it come quickly enough after New Year’s?) spring.

The Spring Leather Collection of hobos, satchels, totes and clutches features leather as soft as a baby’s bottom and as textured as an alligator’s hide.  We particularly love the creaminess of the Tiffany Kensington Bucket Hobo (so nice that poppy continues its run as a spring color) and the rich textures of the Tiffany Riley totes while the Tiffany Quincy bag puts the spectator in the spectator purse.

They’re worthy additions to any girl’s pocketbook closet.
