Tiffany Diamond Jewelry Review: Peretti, Picasso, Schlumberger, Gehry, Etoile

Updated on January 6, 2015

Tiffany Diamonds

Diamonds have a quintessential role in Tiffany jewelry, in nearly all its aspects and branches. Engagement rings and wedding bands carry diamonds as tokens of timeless (“diamonds are forever”) dedication and love; in bracelets, necklaces, earrings, and other jewelry they can be given the space to spread and scatter their unending sparkle for the enjoyment of all. Beyond their luxury value, diamonds serve as repositories of various skills of the highest order – it takes enormous investment, intellectual as well as artistic, to recognize, cut, and polish one stone.

Tiffany not only rely on the significance of this rare gem in Western culture, they also uphold it by creating their own unique diamond pieces. The company's creations, in particular engagement rings, engendered new classes and categories of jewelry, some of which can be found in museums across the globe.

Engagement Rings

Today, only few select brands possess as much authority on diamonds and engagement rings as do Tiffany. The design where the ring is almost completely exposed, yet safely locked within a metal cage, was invented by this company. When set above the band itself, the diamond increases its effect because the light falling on it from below also gets refracted and reflected, contributing to a much more vigorous sparkle.

Smaller diamonds act as ornamental pieces, decorating the band, complementing the main piece on top. Wedding bands designed like the ring, but without the crown, make for a matching set.

Designer

The four designers who collaborated with Tiffany all worked with diamonds, enlivening the precious gems with their artistic visions. Elsa Peretti's and Paloma Picasso's rings and pendants usually contain small inclusions that blend with each piece as a whole. Schlumberger and Gehry, especially the former, can be more extravagant, often allowing the stones to conduct the show.

All four consistently turn to various sizes, cuts and shapes to create a broad assortment of jewelry suitable for a range of occasions – Tiffany being both exclusive and inclusive in this respect.
