Very few American companies have such an illustrious history of Tiffany & Co.. For more than 180 years now, the jewellery brand has continuously defined and pushed the boundaries of luxury and global style.
To celebrate this milestone, Tiffany & Co. is launching a gigantic exhibition in Shanghai, China—the brand’s biggest global event of the year! Titled “Vision & Virtuosity” this extraordinary event will showcase the brand’s very best creative masterpieces.
“These two values—vision and virtuosity—lie at the heart of Tiffany & Co. and this exhibition represents the best of our brand,” said Alessandro Bogliolo, Chief Executive Officer of Tiffany & Co..
From their archives to the legendary pieces we see on award shows today, the exhibition will feature Tiffany & Co’s unparalleled artistry and iconic jewelleries. It is a rare, deep exploration of Tiffany & Co.’s history and DNA.
“With this exhibition, we honor the past and show how beauty and masterful craftsmanship are timeless and always relevant,” said Reed Krakoff, Tiffany & Co.’s Chief Artistic Officer.
“Vision & Virtuosity” is slated to open from September 23 to November 10 at the Fosun Foundation Shanghai, China. It will showcase 6 themes that have established Tiffany & Co. as the global leader and authority on luxury jewellery that it is today.
