The American jewelry retailer Tiffany & Co. had already designed products for men before. This time, the gentlemen received a complete collection of their own at last, created in the spirit of playfulness and elegance. It contains jewelry, designer objects, watches, barware, tabletop games and board games, or accessories like sunglasses, watches and bags. And what about women? The women were left in the dust this time!
The collections of jewelry, accessories, designer objects, watches and other things, named Tiffany 1837 Makers and Diamond Point, reflect the rich history of the legend of American luxury goods design. They're direct, uncomplicated and were created for the modern man: bold and confident, casual yet refined, a style arbiter with a discerning eye for quality.
The Tiffany 1837 Makers collection is artisanal and utilitarian, as confirmed by the Chief Artistic Officer of Tiffany & Co., Reed Krakoff.
"Tiffany 1837 Makers is a nod to the workmanship and time-honored techniques used in creating jewelry—the idea that there's a person behind each object."
Designers of the collection experimented with concave and convex forms, flat edges and motifs evocative of utilitarian hardware. Tiffany 1837 Makers is stamped with symbols like “T & CO MAKERS,” “NY” and “AG925”, honoring the legacy of silversmithing.
The made-to-order Tiffany 1837 Makers trophy ring honors Tiffany's 160-year-long history of making sports trophies by hand.
Diamond Point represents luxurious classic style with a strong, graphic pattern. This motif appears as a subtle accent or a prominent overlay on jewelry and accessories pieces, such as the Diamond Point rectangle pendant in sterling silver, cuffs in sterling silver and cocktail mixer in lead crystal and sterling silver.
People say that men are playful. Tiffany probably thought of that too, which is why they included a handmade chess piece set in sterling silver and 18ct gold, a travel poker set, playing cards, table tennis bats, a pool set or a playful yo-yo.
