It’s one of the most iconic opening sequences in film: Audrey Hepburn as Holly Golightly in Breakfast at Tiffany’s gazes into the Tiffany & Co. store on Fifth Avenue at the crack of dawn, barely taking her eyes off the diamonds while she bites into a pastry.
Who can deny the thrill and delight of real-world shopping? Sure, it’s utterly convenient to buy something online, but screens also strip away all the experiential pleasure of stepping into a boutique.
While the shops have reopened — albeit with a slew of safety measures including occupancy limits, contact tracing and health checks — it’s going to take some time before we’ll feel completely at ease shopping IRL with the kind of carefree insouciance that we have become accustomed to. Good thing then that Tiffany & Co. is bringing its top-notch service to your fingertips and doorsteps with its new personal shopping feature on the website.
This means you can do more than just browse, add to cart, check out, and wait for your jewellery to arrive in a blue box. Once you’ve decided on the pieces that stole your heart, you can place an order — or enquire about the products — with a dedicated Client Care Advisor via live chat on the website, telephone at 1800-TIFFANY (1800-843-3269), as well as email at ClientCare@tiffany.com. Delivery is, of course, complimentary, and payments can be easily made via email or internet banking.
