Published in 1845, Blue Book has evolved into an annual collection highlighting rare gemstones and unparalleled craftsmanship. The Tiffany & Co. 2019 Blue Book Collection is a study in virtuosity, showcasing the earth’s most unusual and exquisite gemstones. A cross-section of art and science—the new Tiffany Jewel Box high jewelry collection magnifies nature’s artistry. Drawing from Tiffany’s innovative craftsmanship, Tiffany Jewel Box encompasses a series of 11 brooches—each differentiated by design elements inspired by nature and unified by an accompanying bespoke vessel designed to house each brooch.
“Beauty and masterful craftsmanship are timeless and always relevant,” said Reed Krakoff, Chief Artistic Director at Tiffany & Co.
An homage to the traditional butterfly form, this collection features an evolution to capture the graceful movement of delicate wings. Featuring surreal blooms of untraditional silhouettes, sapphire petals are set in what appear to be gossamer layers—a stunning use of translucency.

Sculpture serves as a beautiful summary of Tiffany’s wide range of designs that tie together several iconic elements. Echoing the idea of reconstruction, this series is a fantastical representation of how true artisans are able to hide all traces of creation and reveal only beauty. Comprised of custom-cut diamonds, the mosaic motif features asymmetrical, intersecting elements paired with spectacular gemstones.
