Marking Tiffany & Co.’s 150th anniversary in London, “Vision & Virtuosity” brings over 400 objects from the House’s archives. A visual chronicle of the storied jeweller since its founding in New York City in 1837, the exhibition takes visitors on a journey through everything from archival high jewellery designs, Tiffany’s famed window displays and its recently acquired Empire Diamond of over 80 carats to important relics of popular culture such as the original script from Breakfast at Tiffany’s. It is a celebration of Tiffany’s authority as the purveyor of the world’s finest diamonds and a showcase of how two core values—vision and virtuosity—have guided the House for 185 years.
Each of the exhibition’s seven chapters will explore separate themes that are central to Tiffany’s brand identity, heritage, and creative influence. Upon entering Saatchi Gallery, guests will explore founder Charles Lewis Tiffany’s legacy and, in the subsequent sections, experience the works of some of the House’s most creative forces such as Jean Schlumberger and Elsa Peretti. The third chapter is devoted to the annual Blue Book high jewellery collection, while the fourth room is centred on Tiffany’s heritage in the world of love and commitment, having introduced the iconic Tiffany® Setting engagement ring in 1886. The fifth space is devoted to Breakfast at Tiffany’s, while the penultimate chapter is a spectacle of diamonds, dedicated to Tiffany’s renowned diamond creations. At the culmination of the exhibition, guests will have an opportunity to view the legendary 128.54-carat Tiffany Diamond.
