Celebrating Tiffany & Co.'s 175th Anniversary

Last night to celebrate the 175th Anniversary of Tiffany & Co. I attended a lovely champagne soiree in their Bond Street London flagship store to check out their new collection. Imagine being able to wander around the store and be able to try on absolutely anything you wanted - that was my Monday night!

To celebrate Tiffany & Co.'s 175th Anniversary they have unveiled Rubedo, a beautiful new metal which is beautiful, warm and rich just like rose gold. Many of their classic designs have been wrought in this metal, and it looks amazing on any skin tone. I loved how it looked against my really pale skin! (The watch is my own, from Citizen).
My favourite piece in the entire store was this beautiful starfish pendant from the Elsa Peretti collection. I love how much shorter the chain is to any other necklace I own, and how quirky yet delicate the little starfish is - I think I need it in my life!

The canopies were absolutely delicious, my favourites have to be these adorable mini beef burgers and the little squares of red berry jelly topped fois gras.

In store for the evening they had a digital graffiti wall for us to all play around on, it was brilliant fun (even if it was actually harder to work than an actual graffiti paint can!). I decided to recreate my Tiffany key pendant I was wearing, an 18th birthday present from my parents.

Almost every day I wear my plain silver Tiffany key pendant, so just before I left the party I could not resist the opportunity to try one one of the super sparkly versions! This is the beautiful, delicate key Blair Waldorf is famous for wearing in Gossip Girl (the episode where Serena runs off on a polo pony, Blair pairs it with a mint green summer dress and a pink hat>) 

Do you own any Tiffany jewellery? If so, what (and what do you use your little blue box for, I store all my other jewellery in mine!), and if not if you could choose one piece from the Tiffany collection, what would it be? 


  1. Oh,that starfish pendant is so feminine and delicate! XX

  2. Such an amazing night I'm so jealous!

  3. Looks like a wonderfully fabulous event! The necklace is so pretty.

  4. I would love a piece of Tiffany jewellery. My friend recently had a lovely necklace from them for her 21st. So jealous. What an amazing way to spend your Monday night :) xx

    It looks like you had a brilliant time! I would love to own a Tiffany pendant one day to add to my collection :)
    Best wishes,

  6. Oh this looks like such an amazing event!
    I received some Tiffany's wine glasses for our wedding that make me feel like Audrey when I drink out of them;)

  7. This is one press day I wish I had gone to! I love Tiffany jewellery. In fact, it is all I used to wear when I was a few years younger. I still wear my heart and initial at least twice a week. And just like you, I use my little blue box to store other bits of jewellery.

  12. By promoting the so called "delicacy" of foie gras in your blog, you are undoubtedly and unashamedly furthering extreme and callous cruelty to other conscious beings. Awareness of this issue and acceptance of the undeniably horrific conditions through which this product is produced has led to California passing a law banning the sale and production of foie gras effective in 2012. Force-feeding has also been outlawed in the U.K., Austria, Germany, the Czech Republic, Finland, Italy, Luxembourg, the Netherlands, Norway, Poland, South Africa, Sweden, Switzerland, Denmark, and Israel. Perhaps you should educate yourself and refrain from endorsing something that I'm sure you do not want your blog or you as an individual to be associated with.
