Tiffany Unveils the Legendary Tiffany Diamond in a New Setting
In 2012, Tiffany marks 175 years of design excellence with the company’s iconâ€”the 128.54-carat Tiffany Diamondâ€”leading the celebration. Set in a spectacular diamond and platinum necklace, the legendary stone will take part in anniversary events in Tokyo, Beijing and Dubai, returning home to New York City, where Tiffany was founded in 1837. The Tiffany Diamond is one of the world’s largest and finest fancy yellow diamonds. The transcendent and mesmerizing beauty of this wondrous stone symbolizes Tiffany’s reputation as the quintessential jeweller for diamonds of the utmost quality.
Tiffany’s jewellery designers submitted innovative ideas and concepts for the new setting, and the result perfectly reflects their efforts. Over a year in the making, the elegant necklace of white diamonds totals over 120 carats and features 20 Lucida® diamonds and 58 brilliant-cut diamonds. The Diamond’s mounting, an openwork motif of sunrays, is designed with 481 sparkling stones.
After its 2012 anniversary tour, the Tiffany Diamond in its new setting will return to its place of honour on the Main Floor of Tiffany’s Fifth Avenue flagship store.
