When it comes to the word “goddess”, who will you remind of? The first one that comes to my mind is Audrey Hepburn. I adore her as my goddess. I appreciate her beauty, elegance and noble manner in front of film cameras, as well as I respect her contribution towards charity. I like one of her films-Breakfast at Tiffany’s which made a hit in the history of American films. So far, the film has been one of the most classic Love&Fashion films, and it had highest box office in Hepburn’s films. Audrey Hepburn wore The Tiffany Diamond to advertise her film-Breakfast at Tiffany’s. In fact, Tiffany&Co. didn’t invest the film, but Tiffany arise in the film, so we know Tiffany had been famous at that time.
Tiffany & Young was opened by Charles Lewis Tiffany and his partners in New York in 1837. The little stationery & accessory store had developed into a world-famous jewelry store. At that time, America was a new-born country, and America that started to be rich respected ancient European culture and desired to obtain affirmation from the world. As a member, Charles Lewis Tiffany collected European jewelries and studies jewelry designing. He aimed to build a top-grade jewelry brand in the world. One year later, Tiffany got famous in America. Accessories and tableware in silver made in Tiffany were accepted and used widely by American upper class.
To 1886, Tiffany launched The Tiffany setting collection, and the Tiffany Setting diamond ring became the most classic six-griffe diamond ring. Tiffany, the American jewelry brand was able to complete with European jewelry brands. Different from European styles, Tiffany symbolized American spirit-original beauty, simple style and pure love. Celebrities that wore Tiffany jewelries included Mrs Lincoln, Mrs. Roosevelt, Audrey Hepburn, Cate Blanchett and so on. To today, many celebrities and famous stars in Tiffany T, Tiffany Key or Tiffany Heart were spotted in the public. We often see Tiffany in many films and TV series at home and abroad.
The Tiffany Diamond
Tiffany started designing diamond jewelries in the middle of the 19th century. In 1848, Charles Lewis Tiffany brought diamonds back to New York from the Europe, and those diamonds broadened the outlook of the upper class. Therefore, he was called the ling of Diamonds. The birth of The Tiffany Diamond laid its foundation in the colored diamond field in 1878. As one of the most world-famous diamonds, the cushion-shaped yellow diamond that weights 128.54ct and has 82 cuts symbolizes supreme honor of Tiffany in the diamond field.
Audrey Hepburn wore The Tiffany Diamond set in a Ribbon Rosette necklace that designed by Jean Schlumberger to promote the film Breakfast at Tiffany’s. She quoted “A thing of beauty is a joy forever” of Keats to praise the diamond necklace. Jean Schlumberger set a vivid bird on the yellow diamond and called it Bird On a Rock which means canary yellow. In 2012, to pay homage to the 175th anniversary, Tiffany redesigned the yellow diamond. The diamond was set a diamond necklace with classical and modern style. The yellow diamond stands out in the white diamond necklace, representing the promise to the heritage and the originality.
