The exhibition is described as a “visual history” of the legendary jeweler. Seven chapters will be featured in the exhibition, which will explore themes that are central to Tiffany’s brand identity and heritage as well as a creative influence.
Sections will explore Charles Lewis Tiffany’s legacy as well the work of some of the House’s most creative force such as Jean Schlumberger, Elsa Peretti and Tiffany’s Blue Book high-jewellery collection.
A special area will be dedicated to Breakfast at Tiffany’s. There will also be sections dedicated to Tiffany’s famous diamond creations. The Tiffany Setting engagement ring was created in 1886. Finally, there will be a room that houses the 128.54-carat Tiffany Diamond.

It also exemplifies why Tiffany & Co. is an iconic brand.”
