forever 180-years-old at Tiffany & Co., the jewellers world-famous for their elegant engagement rings. If you’ve ever been curious about what makes a Tiffany & Co. piece tick, you can learn about them for yourself — maybe even try on a few pieces.
The brand was founded specifically in New York, 1837 and today, has expanded to 300 stores worldwide with nearly 5,000 artisans. That’s just one fact you’ll learn at “Diamonds of Tiffany”; an immersive journey through the brand’s heritage in craftsmanship and design. Held at the Tiffany & Co. boutique in Suria KLCC, the installation runs for 10 weeks.
Pay special attention to the process artisans undertake to meticulously cut each diamond to maximise its beauty and brilliance, perhaps the core pillar that earned founder Charles Lewis Tiffany the unofficial title of “King of Diamonds”. So serious is the brand to upholding its values, that is thrives with only 0.04% of gem-grade diamonds that meet Tiffany & Co’s quality requirements for being environmental and social responsible. Through its industry-first Diamond Craftsmanship Journey program, Tiffany sources for and individually registers every single diamond — down to its origin, where it was cut, polished, graded, quality assured, and set into jewellery.
Then, ooh and ahh over two very notable pieces on display: the Square Emerald Cut Diamond 16.55 carat ring (Botswana sort) and the diamond earrings worn by Anya Taylor-Joy at the recent Golden Globe Awards. Maybe you’ll even find some sparkly jewellery to buy for yourself — it happens often at a wondrous place like Tiffany & Co.
“Diamonds of Tiffany” at Tiffany & Co. in Suria KLCC takes place now until May 31 2021.
