Tiffany Garden




Tiffany & Co. have done it again... We have fallen head over heels for the new Tiffany Garden Collection. The soft, subtle colours and sweetly whimsical designs are just gorgeous, highlighting Spring's ritual of renewal in a garden blooming with fresh buds, dragonflies, butterflies and bees...




Tiffany Garden is based on diamond floral brooches created by legendary jewelry designer Paulding Farnham (1859-1927), whose vision of American design was shaped by the landscape’s untamed beauty. Trained in botanic illustration Farnham was chief designer of Tiffany’s exhibits that won gold medals at the great world expositions in the late 19th and early 20th centuries. These awards established Tiffany & Co. as the undisputed leader in the world of jewels.



Tiffany Garden reflects this legacy with pear-shaped colored gemstones such as amethysts and diamonds in the traditional rose cut, an early faceting style that resembles the petals of a budding rose, and round brilliant cut. Together the brilliant stones capture spring’s fresh exuberance in dazzling blossoms, in a garden path’s sparkling cobblestones, and in the fluttering wings of a butterfly, bee and dragonfly. 


These delicate garden scenes, set in platinum and 18 karat rose and yellow gold, highlight the fragility not only of flowers and wildlife, but also the nonrenewable materials that form Tiffany Garden.
