For more than one-hundred and seventy-five years, Tiffany & Co. has set the standard for jewelry worldwide. Their rejection of overly ostentatious and self-important designs common in the 1850s led instead to a uniquely American style of jewelry focusing on natural forms and appreciation for the beauty of the materials at hand. Tiffany style has become so prevalent that almost every jeweler in the word imitates it in one way or another, and that’s really not all that surprising when you consider just how astounding their deliverance of the industry into elegance and away from excess really was. Tiffany style can best be described as timeless, and there is no collection in which that fact is more evident than the Metro Collection.
From white gold diamond studded horseshoe pendants to rose gold diamond heart earrings, the Metro Collection offers lovely choices that truly let the materials shine. There may be no other designer on earth who could cover a bangle with diamonds and sapphires and end up with something elegantly lovely instead of showy and over the top. Tiffany & Co. does, though. The Metro Collection rings, bracelets, pendants, and even sunglasses display natural style and elegant perfection. They should, they hold tightly to the core principles that built Tiffany & Co. from a “stationery and fancy goods” shop at its founding to the remarkable company it is today.
