HOLLY: The only thing that does any good is to jump in a cab and go to Tiffany's. It calms me down right away. The quietness and the proud look it. Nothing very bad would happen to you there. Not with those kind men in their nice suits, and all the solid sliver wedding presents waiting there so patiently for someone to propose. . . . . Isn't it wonderful? The above is an excerpt by Holly Golightly in Breakfast at Tiffany. First all, if you haven't seen Breakfast at Tiffany's, you have no business reading this review. Go back watch the movie, then we shall reconvene. No seriously, I mean it. Breakfast at Tiffany's puts Tiffany's on a pedestal where it belongs. Dreamers are remarkable people. How amazing is that the capital used to finance Tiffany and Co or Tiffany and Young as it was called in 1837 was a meagre $500. Charles Lewis Tiffany(founder) had a hardheaded New England business sense, true genius, an entrepreneurial spirit, yankee faith in America, and an iron clad integrity. He recognized his innate gift and teamed up with John Burnett Young. They started out at 259 Broadway in lower Manhattan on September 14, 1837. They called their shop stationery and “fancy things.” Their opening day sales was only $4.98, it wasn't until 15 years after they started out, that they really found their voice. John Loring has written and excellent memoir detailing the challenges these tenacious young men had to push through to bring their brand to where it is today. From sourcing out the finest crown jewels around the world, to opening other branches and moving their style in various directions. Also included are pictures of famous people in their luxury items.
Now Tiffany is 175 years old and so far very little is out of style. Gehry, Picasso, Schlumberger! Their designers aren't for the faint of heart, but as someone whose bought far more Tiffany jewelry than he's worn, I take comfort knowing that what I'm buying didn't just go out of style. The good old stuff is fabulous.
This book looks great on my coffee table with a few other style books. It's full of gorgeous photographs of Tiffany jewelry. A must have for fashion lovers!
This book is visually gorgeous and very informative. The history of Tiffany from 1837 to the present is well written. The jewels are glorious. TIFFANY STYLE is a good read for any Tiffany fan!!!!
This book is written with Tiffany's co-operation and it meant as a celebration/advertisement for Tiffany and its history. It uses high quality paper, features well-printed photos, many taken from past catalogues or magazine articles. There are 100s of photos, many full-page, as well as at least 100 pages of text.The focus is mostly on jewellery from 1990 and earlier. Pages are dedicated to other products made by Tiffany & Co. (lamps, tableware, etc.) but be warned that very little space is devoted to Tiffany & Co's diamond rings, so you'll be disappointed if you're buying this book looking for gorgeous photos of diamond rings.
I recently saw this book while visiting a friend. I still remembered it when I returned home. The images of jewelry and other Tiffany designs are more than beautiful. It is a joy just to glance at the photos. I am pleased to have this book on our coffee table, so I can share it with others. The book arrived as described by the seller. Thank you.
