There are few things more iconic then the classic little blue box from Tiffany & Co. This venerable jewelry house has been creating stunning pieces since the 19th century and has come to be synonymous with glamour and beauty. Beloved by royalty, First Ladies, celebrities, tastemakers, and this writer, Tiffany & Co. has come to hold a special place in many a wearer’s and admirer’s heart. Before Leandra Medine so aptly gave the wrist full of bracelets that I and girls who came of age in the 2000s wore the “arm party” moniker, I was rocking a wrist full of Tiffany & Co. bracelets – a cross between little silver trophies and armor. I still remember the utter joy that came with receiving my first little blue box that officially kicked off my personal arm party. It contained the classic Heart Tag bracelet with my name engraved on it and to this day it still brings such a smile to my face. Tiffany & Co. has continued to mark special milestones in my life, my in-laws even gifted madam and I each a piece of jewelry from the house on the day of her birth.
Needless to say, when I was recently given the chance to style some pieces from the gorgeous new Tiffany HardWear collection, I jumped at the chance. The collection is inspired by a unisex bracelet from 1971 that can be found in the Tiffany & Co. archives and is done in sterling, white, yellow, and rose gold, with some pieces even being adorned with diamonds. Evoking a strong yet elegant image, the collection features rings, bracelets, earrings, and necklaces based on that original design. I love how the pieces lend themselves to being stacked and mixed but are still equally stunning on their own.
