Grab your croissants and lattes, folks because we'll finally be able to eat our breakfast in front of Tiffany & Co as it is all set to make its grand re-debut in India.
As the iconic jewellery brand that defines luxury is all set to launch in India, here is everything you need to know about the heritage of the American-bred Tiffany & Co.
Tiffany & Co was established in 1837 as a 'stationery and fancy goods emporium'.
The 183-year-old brand was started by Charles Lewis Tiffany and John B. Young in Brooklyn. The store initially sold a variety of stationery items and operated as "Tiffany, Young and Ellis".
2. The signature teal shade of Tiffany's (populary known as the Tiffany Blue) is actually their copyright and is registered under the Pantone number 1837.
The iconic shade was inspired by Empress Eugenie De Moti Jio, the wife of Napolean III. She was the biggest fashion icon in the 19th century.
3. Their famous blue box that's symbolic of romantic gestures is actually recyclable and sustainable.
The little blue box is every diamond lover's dream come true. Fun fact: they never sell their signature boxes, it's probably the only thing in the entire store that can't be brought with money.
4. Breakfast at Tiffany's was the first movie that was shot inside the store and the store was safeguarded by 40 security guards.
5. Inspired by the Breakfast At Tiffany's, the store inaugurated its very own cafe-- The Blue Box Cafe.
6. The net worth of Tiffany & Co is over 10.76 billion dollars.
7. From stationery to engagement rings, Tiffany's has something for everyone.
Even the low-end products are made with the finest craftsmanship and live up to the reputation.
8. Priyanka Chopra's bridal shower jewellery from Tiffany's was over 9.8 crores. She celebrated her bridal shower in The Blue Box Cafe.
9. Tiffany's yellow diamond is one of the largest diamonds to be discovered after the Koh-i-Noor.
Its carat weight was originally 287.42 carats (57.484 g) in the rough. It was cut into a cushion shape of 128.54 carats. After Audrey Hepburn, Lady Gaga was the only person to wear it for the Oscars.
10. In the 1860s, during the civil war, Tiffany's also supplied swords, flags and surgical implements.
We can't wait to welcome Tiffany & Co.
