Tiffany & Co. has unraveled its new Blue Book jewelry collection, Colors of Nature, incorporating bold historical references. Celebrating the enchanting beauty of the natural world, with an unexpected palette of rare gemstones, Tiffany & Co.’s new collection is a must-have for those looking for luxury and exclusive high jewelry.
The new jewelry collection includes new rings, necklaces, and brooches in a vibrant prism of color, alongside classic designs from Jean Schlumberger, rethought for a modern age. The French designer’s creations for Tiffany & Co. in the twentieth century reflected his love of natural symbols!
Attempting outside of the more traditional language of high jewelry, this new collection of 128 creations takes spectators on a colorful journey through nature’s vibrant chromatic displays. Besides the technical innovation and masterful craftsmanship, Tiffany & Co.’s spectacular pieces shine a spotlight on the house’s prestige in diamonds and its pedigree as a purveyor of colored gemstones.
Nature is deeply rooted in Tiffany’s heritage and has always been a source of inspiration. The connection to nature in high jewelry is quite timeless and it is a theme that has inspired jewelry from ancient times to today. The overarching concept for this year’s collection, Colors of Nature, is a celebration of the colors of our world—whether deep within it to those that pervade and extend far beyond it — whereby magnificent colored gems and diamonds become breath-taking symbols of the vivid hues and beauty all around us.Victoria Reynolds, chief gemologist and vice president of global merchandising for Tiffany & Co.
Showcasing strong, clean lines and contemporary designs, the jewelry collection covers four overarching themes – Land, Sea, Sky, and Earth. Verdant green tourmalines and rare Colombian emeralds are evocative of rich landscapes, while blue seas and the electric color swatches of underwater fauna are realized in aquamarines, sapphires. Rare gems, including spinels as well as yellow and orange sapphires, depict abstract hues that light up the sky in designs inspired by the world above or the vibrant colors of Earth’s molten core.
This is the first time Tiffany & Co. incorporates colored gemstones in an incredible range of shades and colors not often seen in a high jewelry collection. The jewels draw natural symbols – flowers, butterflies, starfish, sea turtles – in precious stones. Impressive, don’t you think?
