Tiffany & Co.
Since 1837 when founded in New York City by Charles Lewis Tiffany, Tiffany & Co. has been the world's premier jeweller and America's house of design. It has a rich heritage filled with celebrated events, artists and milestones that live on today in legendary style.
Throughout its history, Tiffany has set standards that have since been adopted by the United States. For example in 1851, Tiffany was the first company to institute the 925/1000 silver standard and also was instrumental in the international adoption of the metric carat as a weight standard for gems. In 1926 the United States also adopted Tiffany's criterion of purity (95 percent) as the country's official standard for platinum.
From film stars to first ladies, Tiffany jewels have adorned the world's most stylish women. From Elizabeth Taylor to Jacqueline Kennedy and of course, Audrey Hepburn, the star of "Breakfast at Tiffany's, wore Tiffany jewels.
