In prime position on 5th Avenue, the New York central Tiffany’s store has become somewhat iconic and recognizable by its exterior. It featured briefly in the film “Breakfast at Tiffany’s”, and has enjoyed countless references within movies, rom-coms and soaps – to the extent it is modernly regarded as America’s “ Best House of Jewelry Design”. If you’ve ever been to visit the Crown Jewels at the Tower of London, U.K, you’ll get that same feeling walking into a Tiffany’s store. However much you stress you won’t have your head turned, you’ll swallow your words as soon as your eyes meet with row upon row of glass-fronted display cabinets that drip with ice, diamonds and glamor. Interestingly, Tiffany prices aren’t all the equivalent of two years’ salary, and the Elsa Peretti Collection has some fabulous modern gifts well under the $200 mark. Phone up in advance if you want to catch one of the popular “What Makes A Tiffany Diamond” workshops, or one-to-one tutorials on how to choose the perfect wedding/ engagement ring.
