#BelieveinLove: Valentine’s at Tiffany’s

2/9/2018

The perfect Valentine's gifts come in covetable Tiffany Blue wrapping from none other than Tiffany & Co.

In 1837 Charles Lewis Tiffany and John B. Young founded “Tiffany, Young and Ellis”, the initial store name of Tiffany & Co. When the two started the company selling stationary and fancy goods, it was unlikely that they had envisioned being one of the world’s legacy jeweller, offering the covetable gifts for all occasions, especially Valentine’s.

Tiffany & Co was first known for its silverware that won the 1867 International in Paris. The company once supplied swords, flags and surgical implements for the Union Army as well as medal of honours for the US Police and Navy Departments.

The silver and medal works led Tiffany's to evolve into a jewellery maker. Today, they are celebrated for their classic array of diamond and sterling silver accessories and most recently, their fancy stationeries and timeless silverware pieces that they released as part of their Everyday Objects.

Since Valentine's is a few days away, it's worth noting that many celebrate the day of love by gifting Tiffany to their significant other. The company has indeed designed many pieces to celebrate love. There are some gifts at Tiffany stores that might express our love best.

Tiffany has been expressing love through the famous key and padlock heart-shaped ornaments, like Tiffany Keys Wire Bracelet, Tiffany Key Fleur de Lis, Tiffany Charms Love Notes Lock and Key Earrings.

Its signature Valentine gifts also include the padlock pendant, like these Return to Tiffany pendants and earrings.

Tiffany designs vary – they can be playful, but they can also be very powerful and romantic. The Jean Schlumberger Sixteen Stone Diamond ring with platinum and 18k golden X's, for example, combines purity of the diamonds, which are strengthened with joints of yellow gold.

Express your love in different ways and let your lover wear your love anywhere they go. At last, we wish you a happy Valentine’s Day. Hope you are cherished with #TiffanyLove.
