Our story begins in 1837 in New York City. In 1837, Charles Lewis Tiffany arrived in New York with a vision of spectacular beauty that went on to redefine glamour and style around the world.
Since its founding, Tiffany has been at the forefront of the world’s greatest design movements. Its Japanesque silver won Tiffany the highest honors at the 1878 Paris World Exposition and at the turn of the twentieth century, Louis Comfort Tiffany emerged as an Art Nouveau leader. From glamorous, geometric Art Deco pieces and bold cocktail-style creations to the nature-inspired works of Jean Schlumberger and Elsa Peretti, Tiffany has broken new ground time and again with exceptional designs that remain relevant today.
For over 170 years, Tiffany has been there for America’s important moments. During the Civil War, Tiffany produced ceremonial swords. Tiffany designs have graced both the Congressional Medal of Honor and the dollar bill. U.S. presidents have turned to Tiffany to create the White House china, gifts for visiting dignitaries or jewelry for the First Lady.
