“For more than 175 years, Tiffany & Co. has been synonymous with luxury and style. Few American companies have such an illustrious history. It begins with a founder’s vision of beauty that was brought to life through unassailable standards of excellence. As awards and accolades accrued, Mr. Tiffany led his company’s growth from a New York City legend to a jeweler of international renown.

In 2012 Tiffany marked its 175th anniversary. In honor of this milestone, the Tiffany Diamond was reset in a magnificent necklace of dazzling white diamonds. After traveling to gala celebrations in Tokyo, Beijing and Dubai, the diamond in its new setting will return to New York City and its permanent place of honor on the Main Floor of Tiffany’s Fifth Avenue store.

This priceless gem is symbolic of a heritage based on the highest standards of quality and design excellence. These standards have made Tiffany & Co. one of America’s great institutions, a world-renowned jeweler with over 300 stores worldwide, and something more: the trusted maker of gifts that will be treasured for a lifetime.
