Tiffany Jewelry Gold Platinum Titanium Bracelets Review
Tiffany's department of gold and platinum bracelets retains the classic elegance of silver bracelets, and adds a branch of exotic, unusual, risky designs. These reveal various texture irregularities, asymmetry, and unorthodox material combinations – all of which, however, are accepted as norm in high-end and avant-guard fashion jewelry.
While yellow 18k gold is the most common metal used, Tiffany also employ white and rose gold, as well as platinum: some of the more colorful pieces combine these metals in various configurations, often enhanced with diamonds or other precious stones. Additional materials include titanium and stainless steel – uncommon alloys in jewelry making that produce a surprisingly rugged look.
Models include cuff, chain link, bangle, clasp, and stretch; the company clearly enjoys the range and variety of its assortment.
In a way, gold (yellow, white, rose) and platinum bracelets constitute the most straightforward, old school jewelry that's guaranteed to keep its value for ages. This is especially true about the strictly gold designs, where the metal takes different turns and twists, appearing in chains, braids, strips, sheets, or other forms or shapes. An unromantic reminder: gold is gold.
But sophistication rarely hurts, so Schlumberger's enamelled pieces, and Gehry's begemmed ones, provide an important aesthetic variety, proving that luxury can be not only chic, but also beautiful. Metro and Signature collections introduce slenderness by simply thinning the basic premise of gold basis plus diamonds.
Titanium, Stainless Steel
We rarely encounter these metals in jewelry (though often in watches), and exactly for that reason they deserve a special mention. Steel and titanium pieces are clearly not as “pretty” as golden or silver ones, if only because their main material doesn't reflect light in as rich a sheen as their precious brethren.
They aim to reflect a different glow: that of a powerful rebellious personality that's not entirely alien to decoration and the aesthetic – such as Tiffany jewelry and bracelets have to offer.
