Tiffany & Co created diamond engagement rings for men

In the world of opulent engagements, Tiffany & Co’s diamonds are undoubtedly among the most coveted. And while the leading luxury jeweler offers an extensive collection of wedding rings for both men and women, Tiffany’s engagement ring selection has never catered to men — until now.

New York-based jeweler Tiffany & Co has been the preeminent destination for diamond engagement rings for nearly two centuries, but the luxury retailer’s latest collection – a line of sleek diamond engagement rings for men – just may be its most groundbreaking concept to date.

Launching this spring, the renowend jeweler unveiled its foray into men engagement rings with The Charles Tiffany Setting, a collection named after founder Charles Lewis Tiffany. The debut collection features rings with a signet silhouette design, settings in platinum and titanium and a bold solitaire diamond at the head.

Founded in 1837 and recently acquired by LVMH, Tiffany & Co is known and loved for the solitaire diamond engagement that debuted in 1886 and the unmistakable Tiffany Blue Box®, a symbol of love and commitment for generations. The Charles Tiffany Setting collection marks the first time the 184-year-old iconic jewelry retailer has made a diamond engagement ring available for men, though the brand has long offered wedding bands for men.

Following in the footsteps of its iconic sister, The Charles Tiffany Setting honors the jeweler’s long-standing legacy in love and inclusivity, paving the way for new traditions to celebrate our unique love stories and honor our most cherished commitments to one another.

The diamond engagement rings will be available in black and gray titanium and platinum with emerald cut, square emerald cut, and round diamonds that can go up to five carats in size. The band, inspired by the band on the iconic Tiffany® Setting, features contemporary, architectural beveled edges. Departing from more traditional wedding bands and instead opting for a contemporary signet silhouette, powerful contouring accentuates the modern profile across each iteration — and of course, the striking center diamond harkens back to the brand’s legacy in fine jewelry creations.

The first official release from The Charles Tiffany Setting offers two different cuts, round brilliant and emerald, in up to five carats. The round brilliant arrivals boast a sleek, knife-edge – a sartorial reference to the label’s signature Tiffany Setting ring – while emerald-cut diamonds rest atop a streamlined construction with architecturally oblique sides.

As part of Tiffany’s diamond traceability commitment, each diamond in the men’s engagement collection will arrive with full craftsmanship certification, which includes details regarding the diamond’s exact origin as well as the cut, polish, grade, and quality.

Both famous and everyday men alike have increasingly become more open about embracing diamond jewelry, with many brands like Boucheron dedicating entire collections to gender neutral diamond jewelry designs. And with an increase in demand for engagement rings for men, Tiffany’s new collection is just one way the brand aims to support inclusivity and expressions of love with fine jewelry.

What is your favorite? The Charles Tiffany Setting collection will be available to purchase in May 2021 at Tiffany & Co boutiques worldwide. For more information, come into the beautiful world of Tiffany & Co.

Tiffany & Co, They Are Still In

As European, we have seen America very differently in recent years than before. Much has changed. And usually not positive. Ook wanneer het gaat om klimaat veranderingen. Although it is so obvious what is going on that it is still denied. We think its bizar. What happened to the country where so many innovations came from? Little is left of the iconic American auto industry, you cannot live on old successes, no matter how beautiful the V8 engines are.

Now, more than ever, it’s time to go all in. It’s time to invest in a 100% clean energy economy. We believe that our company and the global economy will be stronger in a low-carbon future, which is why we have pledged to reach net-zero greenhouse gas emissions and increase climate resilience by 2025. 

Tiffany & Co

How nice it is to find out that there are companies that do innovate, and do not put their heads in the sand. On the fifth anniversary of the Paris Agreement, American jeweler Tiffany & Co. is proud to join the call for a national mobilization on climate and recovery.

It is not the first time that Yakymour is proud of Tiffany & Co because they stand up for what is right, and do right. For that, we love Tiffany & Co.! Come into the beautiful world of Tiffany & Co.

Sold! LVMH buys Tiffany & Co in $16.2 billion deal

Tiffany-Co

The luxury French conglomerate and the American jeweller reach an agreement and it’s a big deal… In one of its biggest moves of the year – after Bvlgari, Chaumet, Fred, Hublot, and many others – LVMH (Louis Vuitton Moët Hennessy) acquired fabled American jeweller Tiffany & Co. for $16.2 billion, solidifying its place as the world’s biggest luxury group.

The deal, which saw LVMH initially bid $120 per share back in October before both parties settled on $135, will help re-energise the jewellery brand and its business which has seen a substantial drop in interest in America as well as abroad. The blockbuster move will strengthen LVMH’s position in jewellery, creating heady competition for Swiss conglomerate Richemont, which owns both the French Maison’s Cartier and Van Cleef & Arpels, and has dominated the hard luxury category in the past few years.

We are delighted to have the opportunity to welcome Tiffany & Co, a company with an unparalleled heritage and unique position in the global jewellery world, to the LVMH family. We have an immense respect and admiration for Tiffany and intend to develop this jewel with the same dedication and commitment that we have applied to each and every one of our Maisons. We will be proud to have Tiffany sit alongside our iconic brands and look forward to ensuring that Tiffany continues to thrive for centuries to come.

Bernard Arnaul, LVMH chairman and chief executive officer

With 75 distinguished Houses, Tiffany & Co now joins LVMH’s massive stable of luxury brands which include fashion houses Louis Vuitton, Christian Dior, and Celine, as well as beauty retail giant Sephora. “As part of the LVMH group, Tiffany will reach new heights, capitalising on its remarkable internal expertise, unparalleled craftsmanship and strong cultural values”, Alessandro Bogliolo, chief executive officer of Tiffany.

The café is open regular store hours, which means customers can stop by after browsing for engagement rings (’tis the season) or just to live out their Audrey Hepburn fantasies (don’t forget your – Givenchy – black dress). But, with reports of lines out the door, it seems there’s already much ado about Tiffany!
