Love of beauty is taste.  The creation of beauty is art. ~ Ralph Waldo Emerson

We delight in the beauty of the butterfly, but rarely admit the changes it has gone through to achieve that beauty. ~ Maya Angelou 

i did not have breakfast at tiffany’s, but i did have a rare afternoon treat.  while in new york city for the Tiffany & Co. Blue Book gala event, i had the pleasure to visit the Tiffany & Co. workshop atop the flagship store on fifth avenue.  there, above the selling floors, the tiffany craftsman are creating jewel pieces for art’s sake.  flawless and extraordinary one of a kind jewelry designs is what’s being created in this workshop.  charles lewis tiffany and john b. young, founded the company in 1837, but not until 1853 was precious jewels the focus of the company.  today, the company is a multinational business that has brought its founder’s vision well into fruition.  the labour and detail involved to craft the tiffany Blue Book pieces is quite extraordinary.  these exceptional pieces, some requiring years to complete, make the blue book fabulous creations.  i was delighted to learn that tiffany employs responsible and ethical sourcing of metals and gemstones to preserve the environment.  these exquisite pieces are works of art, exceptional in the inside as the outside.  observing the tiffany master craftsman at work was a rare treat.  true artistry is a rare treat.  an afternoon treat at tiffany is for thebestdressup now!

    🙂 How very beautiful! Would enjoy to see them in real life 🙂

    • ciao! thanks! you may see these pieces in the ny store and sometimes they do travel to one of the other tiffany stores. if you are near a store, stop in and ask about the ‘blue book’ pieces.
