Founded in 1837 by Charles Lewis Tiffany, Tiffany & Co. is known for their luxury goods, particularly their diamond and sterling silver jewelry. Jewelry was not always Tiffany & Co.’s emphasis. In fact, the original store sold primarily fine stationary, and during the Civil War, Tiffany supplied the Union Army with ceremonial swords and surgical instruments. The Tiffany Artistic Jewelry department wasn’t officially established until 1902 when Charles Lewis Tiffany died and his son, Louis Comfort Tiffany, became the company’s artistic director.
Louis Comfort Tiffany would also become known for his fine stained-glass lamps and windows, as well as establish the company’s flagship store on 5th Avenue in New York in 1910. Tiffany & Co. jewelry has been featured in a number of iconic films, including Gentlemen Prefer Blondes, while Marilyn Monroe sings “Diamonds Are a Girl’s Best Friend,” and Breakfast at Tiffany’s.
