I had the privilege of attending the media opening of Tiffany & Co before the general grand opening on Friday, October 11, and I was blown away the second I walked in. Greeted with champagne at the front entrance, hors d’ouevres handed out and finally little Tiffany blue box cheese cake with caramel to top off an amazing experience. That’s exactly what walking into the Tiffany’s store is, an experience.
I received a tour from one of the senior reps hosting the party, it was like a backstage pass to Tiffany’s! The first thing I noticed had to have been the hand painted wallpaper, with the finest details of Mother of Pearl and the classic touch of “Tiffany blue” swirled around the floral pattern, it was eye catching!
Our tour led us to a private room, where the doors weighed a tonne, the lights dimmed down to capture the stunning curves of the collections and for those high ticket items, you are left in complete privacy. There have been many proposals at the flagship store in New York as well, how romantic! From my previous post I had expressed my love for the Frank Gehry collection. After visiting the store I think I’ve added a new love to that list, the Atlas Collection. I fell in love with the classic round watch looking pendant on a beautiful thin silver chain. Designed in 1983, the Roman numerals represent the numbers on a watch, III VI IX XII, you can see below the diamond encrusted Atlas pendant.
To conclude my experience, after trying on numerous bracelets, rings and necklaces, I was treated to a cheesecake in the shape of a Tiffany’s box! And upon my exit I was handed the renowned little blue bag. To my surprise I received my very first Tiffany necklace from none other than the Atlas collection! Thank you Tiffany’s!
