On September 18 1837, Charles Lewis Tiffany founded a "stationery and fancy goods emporium" known as Tiffany, Young and Ellis and sold a wide variety of stationery items. The name evolved into Tiffany & Co. in 1853 when Charles Tiffany, "The King of Diamonds", took control and focused on jewelry. Today Tiffany & Co. celebrates their 175 anniversary! Whether it is the iconic Tiffany Setting, the Tiffany Diamond Audrey Hepburn wore for the 1961 film "Breakfast at Tiffany's", or the distinctive Tiffany Blue Box, this jewelry house has been a part of every girl's dream.
"The world has been enthralled with the distinctive Tiffany Blue Box since the very beginning. It was Charles Lewis Tiffany who mandated that the coveted boxes could only be acquired with a Tiffany purchase... Glimpsed on a busy street or resting in the palm of a hand, Tiffany Blue Boxes make hearts beat faster, and epitomize Tiffany's great heritage of elegance, exclusivity and flawless craftsmanship." - The Tiffany Story
"Since the early twentieth century, the world has been enchanted with Tiffany glamour. In the 1961 Hollywood classic "Breakfast at Tiffany's", Audrey Hepburn personified Tiffany style... Today, Tiffany's exquisite designs continue to exude sophistication and elegance in magazines, in films and on the red carpet, adorning luminaries of popular culture like Kate Winslet, Angelina Jolie, Anne Hathaway and countless others." - The Tiffany Story
"It was Tiffany & Co. that introduced the engagement ring as we knot it today. The celebrated six-prong 'Tiffany Setting' lifts the diamond above the band and into the light. The result is a ring whose beauty has never been equaled." - The Tiffany Story
