Bejewelled by Tiffany

Orchid © Tiffany & Co
Tiffany & Co opened in New York in 1837 as a "fancy goods" store, but quickly established its reputation as one of the world's finest creators of jewellery. Bejewelled by Tiffany, 1837-1987, at the Gilbert Collection, Somerset House, London, UK, celebrates Tiffany's first 150 years with the most comprehensive collection of its jewellery ever assembled: 200 pieces for would-be social climbers to drool over. Some of the pieces are merely boringly rich, but others reveal a sparkling flare for design. Click the title link to see more of the exquisite craftsmanship that will be on display from 24 June to 26 November 2006.
