Tiffany Diamond Gets A New Setting For 175th Anniversary


The official, brilliant yellow Tiffany Diamond–128.54 carats–was procured from South Africa by Charles Lewis Tiffany in 1878. In honor of the jeweler’s 175th anniversary, the gem will be set on a necklace of white diamonds and welcomed back to its permanent home, at Tiffany & Co. Fifth Avenue in N.Y.C.

Adding to the allure of this stone, only two women have ever worn the Tiffany Diamond. Mrs. Mary Whitehouse wore a lavish necklace set with the diamond for the 1957 Tiffany Ball in Newport, Rhode Island and of course Audrey Hepburn® wore the Jean Schlumberger necklace, cigarette holder in hand and a kitten smile, for the publicity photographs for the 1961 filmBreakfast at Tiffany’s.
