Tiffany's Blue Color - The Story Behind

The Empress Eugenie of France, who is referred as the "Grace Kelly of the 19th century" had a favorite color: Robin's Egg Blue. Charles Tiffany adopted this color in 1853 and today, the famous "Tiffany Blue Color" is produced by Pantone and trademarked as color number 1837 (which is what we now see in the iconic "Tiffany's Blue Box®", one of the most desired jewelry gifts in the world).

From "Breakfast at Tiffany's" To "Sex & the City"

There is no denial that Audrey Hepburn immortalized Tiffany in the movie "Breakfast at Tiffany's" as Holly Golightly. The magnificent story showed the magic of owning a piece of Tiffany's jewelry, played beautifully by Audrey. This was the first and only time a movie crew was ever allowed to film inside the store (along with 40 security guards).

During the filming of the HBO TV Series "Sex & the City" they payed homage to the movie by filming a scene outside of their Manhattan location (Watch the scene here).


Own A Piece Of Picasso With Tiffany

One of the most sought-after designers to collaborate with the brand for many years is Paloma Picasso, daughter of the one and only Pablo Picasso. As an art lover and Picasso fanatic myself, I had to own a piece of Paloma's collections. Several of her pieces evoke and pay tribute to her father's art and icons. Truly fascinating that the brand has started and keeps these kind of collaborations which are history in the making.
