Tiffany & Co.’s New Collection Gives a Nod to the Past
Many of Tiffany & Co.’s jewellery designs thoughtfully reflect the brand’s history, and its newest collection, the biggest this year, does that while achieving an effortless and modern aesthetic with collections such as the Tiffany Lock.
Founded in New York in 1837, the company has a long and rich history of iconic moments in American culture: designing the Great Seal of the United States, which is still on the dollar bill, being featured in movies like Breakfast at Tiffany’s and Sleepless in Seattle, and offering iconic designs from Elsa Peretti and Paloma Picasso.
Its latest collection, Tiffany Lock, launched online last week with availability in stores starting September 1 and additional styles in January 2023. Tiffany Lock features four all-gender bracelets that represent inclusivity. In 18-karat yellow, rose, and white gold, with all-metal, diamond accents, and full- or half-pavé diamond options, the collection’s mantra is “No rules. All welcome.”
The design uses a swinging padlock clasp, harkening back to the functioning padlocks Tiffany & Co. first sold in the late 1800s. Since then, the lock motif has appeared in several collections, including Return to Tiffany and Tiffany HardWear. The sleek silhouette of the new bangles brings the Tiffany lock firmly and stylishly into the present day.
