Tiffany & Co. Earrings
What began as a "stationery and fancy goods store" in lower Manhattan has evolved into an American luxury brand replete with fine jewelry designs that are recognized and sought after on a global scale.
In 1837, Charles Lewis Tiffany established Tiffany & Co., and later developed the iconic six-prong Tiffany engagement ring setting that remains a triumph today.
Long before designer collaborations were de rigueur, Tiffany & Co. further distinguished itself with special collections commissioned from the world’s most talented artists. Design Director Emeritus John Loring assembled a coterie of unabashed modernists, from Paloma Picasso and Elsa Peretti to Frank Gehry, whose pieces continue to be a favorite among collectors.
Over the last 175+ years, earrings have played a starring role in the house’s treasury of designs, from wear-everywhere pearl and diamond studs to opulent couture masterpieces by such luminaries as J. Paulding Farnham and Jean Schlumberger. Elizabeth Taylor owned a stunning pair of sapphire, diamond and pearl Fleur de Mer ear clips (a gift from her beloved Richard Burton) by the latter designer.
In 1975, a young Candice Bergen was photographed by Rico Puhlmann for "Harper’s Bazaar" wearing Elsa Peretti sterling hoops (and an Open Heart necklace)
Inspired by the graffiti she saw on the buildings of New York City, Paloma Picasso’s first collection for Tiffany & Co. debuted in 1980. Among its enduringly classic motifs: A stylized “X”
Modern enthusiasts include the Duchess of Cambridge, who has been photographed wearing Tiffany & Co. earrings on several occasions
