Diamonds and tourmalines of various blue hues along with South Sea pearls and turquoise have been interspersed with classic white diamonds and other colourful gems to create wonderous moving shapes in Tiffany & Co’s 2015 Blue Book, The Art of the Sea.
The Blue Book, Tiffany & Co’s annual catalogue, dates back to 1875 when the first catalogue of its kind was produced and distributed across America. From 1878 it has been recognised for its Tiffany Blue cover and debuts the company’s newest and most exquisite designs, featuring the worlds finest jewels.
This years version is the inaugural Blue Book for Francesca Amfitheatrof, Tiffany & Co’s (somewhat) new design director. At the helm since 2013, Amfitheatrof released the popular Tiffany T collection last year with The Art of the Sea being her latest creation.
“The Art of the Sea is really everything that is so inspiring, so mesmerising, when you look, when you dive down into the sea you really find the most beautiful objects, the most beautiful part of nature”
Amfitheatrof has done an incredible job translating that ideal into jewellery design including rings of blue sapphires and carbochon chrysocolla, and platinum bracelets of diamonds and blue sapphires.
