The Tiffany & Co. Blue Book collection highlights the evolution of a 179-year legacy of glamour and style. Magnificent jewels are its symbol—and Blue Book its greatest showcase. For 2016, Tiffany turns this celebrated collection into an exploration of nature—and The Art of Transformation.

The jewelry is the vision of design director Francesca Amfitheatrof, who utilizes the finest diamonds and colorful gemstones to capture the brilliant world that unfolds in nature and in one breathtaking moment, bursts into an extraordinary beauty. “In this collection, we are taking you on a journey through nature. From the deep ocean, we float to the edge of the water where stillness reigns. In this world, cocooned in calm, transformation occurs. Life changes, and nature reaches to the surface and takes its first breath of air. It’s a story about evolution and all that is possible in silence and peace, where nature plays its magic and creates the mysteries of the world we live in.”

Tiffany diamonds are among the most sought-after of these treasures. They are even more alluring in virtually invisible settings that maximize movement and play of light. Master stonecutters and setters create a wide, flexible bracelet with streams of round diamonds that flow around square-cut and pear-shape stones. Beautifully matched for color and clarity, the diamonds release an electrifying sparkle.

Blue Book also features brilliant creatures that evolve in myriad and wondrous ways. Among these creations are a trio of starfish in a cuff of diamonds, sapphires and tsavorites; an Octopus of diamond tentacles surrounding an outsize baroque pearl; and earrings of emerald-cut tanzanites that anchor fanciful fish of green tourmalines.

Collected in the Tiffany & Co. 2016 Blue Book, these consummate jewels are in harmony both with nature and Tiffany’s unparalleled design heritage.
