Why Tiffany’s Elsa Peretti Jewellery Is The Perfect Christmas Gift
Tiffany & Co. Focus
Former model Peretti began creating her own jewellery pieces for international fashion labels back in 1969, including legendary collaborations with designer Halston, before joining Tiffany & Co. in 1974–where her eponymous Elsa Peretti Collection heralded a new era of contemporary jewellery design for the iconic American brand.
Since then, Peretti’s award-winning designs have received acclaim from around the world; she was named Accessory Designer of the Year by the Council of Fashion Designers of America, has pieces showcased in the British Museum’s permanent collection, and Tiffany even established a jewellery professorship in her honour at the Fashion Institute of Technology.
Peretti’s designs are famed for their fluid shapes, clean lines, undulating forms and innovative vision, and she is particularly renowned for elevating sterling silver to new heights in jewellery.
Her distinctive approach sees her inspired by natural, organic objects like starfish, teardrops and beans–whilst subtly abstracting them in fresh, exciting and stylish new ways. “All my work comes out of my life,” she says, “I see lines and shapes where no one else does.”
All this is impeccably illustrated by her latest Diamond Hoop Collection, which perfectly balances graphic minimalism with the finest precious materials. A pioneer of delicate wire jewellery, these serenely linear pieces are simple but stunning, with flowing fluid curves brilliantly punctuated by dazzling diamonds.
Previously only available in 18-karat gold or platinum, the Diamond Hoop range of bangles, rings, earrings and necklaces are now also offered in platinum and 18-karat rose gold–meaning there is a hue to suit every taste or outfit.
Understated enough for the everyday but extraordinary enough to be eye-catching in the evening, these pieces look incredible either worn alone as a singular style statement or layered and stacked for show-stopping effect, and boast a classic timeless appeal that guarantees they will be gifts the wearer will treasure for many years to come.
And of course, each Diamond Hoop piece comes presented in a Tiffany’s signature little blue box–possibly the most iconic, beloved packaging the world has seen.
For Christmas 2018, these boxes come with a special twist, as customers can opt for striking ribboning in vibrant shades of orange or yellow (in addition to the house’s classic white colour). This packaging is available only at Tiffany stores in The Landmark, Times Square and 1881 Heritage for the holiday season, making this an even more unique gift.
Further festive inspiration can also be found at Harbour City’s “The Holidays Made by Tiffany”, which plays host to interactive installations, magnificent displays (including a 30-foot Christmas tree) and whimsical gifting ideas throughout the Christmas period.
So for fabulously flawless gifts this holiday season, Tiffany really does have things all wrapped up.
