Tiffany & Co Exhibition #VisionandVirtuosity

The Saatchi Gallery  in London are holding a Tiffany & Co exhibition.

Tiffany are a brand that really needs no introduction. But if you aren’t aware who Tiffany are, please let me tell you. Founded in 1837 by jeweler  Charles Lewis Tiffany. Starting out as a fine stationary and fine goods store. Developing into the jewelry house known the world over. From the average personal to royalty and celebrities. Everyone wants a piece of Tiffany jewelry. The iconic Tiffany blue box is a figure head of the company. The ethos is that no blue Tiffany & Co box leaves without something inside it.

Now if you follower Rose from Black Pink on Instagram like I do  you’ll have seen that she is the ambassador for Tiffany & Co. Rose recently uploaded a photo about the Tiffany exhibition and I had to go. The tickets are free your have to pre-book them and wait for your time slot.

Hayden and I caught the train into Waterloo then dashed over to the King’s Road  where the Saatchi Gallery is via the tube. As it was gloriously sunny the gallery was very warm.

But we spent out time moving from room to room exploring the world of Tiffany & Co. Using my Samsung Galaxy buds to listen to the audio tour via the Tiffany & Co app. Starting with store fronts that show some of the more iconic Tiffany & Co moments, to the history room then moving upstairs to the white room fitted like a Tiffany boutique. Cabinets upon cabinets of sparkly jewels every diamond lover would enjoy. The immersive rooms  designed around Tiffany & Co being the founders of the engagement ring.  In a soft blue hued room. Select rings were displayed in circular cases placed down the middle of the room. Above were delicate paper vines hanging and moving as people walked past. Along the first half of the walls were stations you could write the name of your loved ones and send them out across the walls. As though they were notes on paper being sent down a river.

The second half of the room the same vines that were on the ceilings were continued though. The screens along the walls were vines and branches  that moved away when you stepped closer to them, revealing Tiffany icons and little blue boxes tied with white ribbons.


Moving around the gallery you entered a vast room dedicated to Breakfast at Tiffany’s. A classic 1961 movie staring Audrey Hepburn. A movie adaptation from the novel of the same name by Truman Capote. The iconic moment when Holly Golightly is seen eating a pastry outside the Tiffany & Co flagship store in Manhattan NY. The movie was emortalised in the gallery with a facade of the Tiffany flagship store against one wall. Set photos in black and white of Miss Hepburn in her different costumes. The manuscript with Audrey Hepburns notes in. A New York Taxi.

A diamond room was next. A room that was darker then any other with cabinets and cabinets of the most sparkly pieces I’d ever seen. Necklaces, bracelets and headwear. A head piece worn by Daisy in the recent Great Gatsby adaptation.

A Tiffany &  Co exhibition wouldn’t be complete without a look at The Tiffany Diamond. Estemated to be worth around £30m in today’s money. Found in the Kimberley Mine of South Africa in 1877. The yellow diamond has only been worn by four women since its discovery. Socialite Mary Whitehouse, Audrey Hepburn for promotional photos for Breakfast at Tiffany’s, Lady Gaga at the 2019 Oscars. Most recently by Beyonce. The new ad campaign for Tiffany features Beyonce and Jay-Z. Using VR with the Tiffany app you can experience wearing the diamond yourself.

If you have the opportunity to visit the exhibition please do. It’s a lovely experience. A great way the spend the day looking at diamonds and dreaming about wearing them.
