The store sells rings, bracelets and necklaces just like most any store but this store is known to generations for its fine quality of gem stones and impeccable style that never goes out of style. Most items in the store you can’t afford to buy but that is part of the charm of the place. Michael Kowalski is the Chairman and CEO of Tiffany & Co. that began 175 years ago.
Tiffany proved to be a marketing genius by hiring designers and the best American silversmiths whose designs on the silver and jewelry pieces started winning international awards for style and design. Many of the early works can be found today in New York’s Metropolitan Museum of Art as well as in the company's private collection. By the mid 1800’s Tiffany jewelry was already the rage. All women wanted to flaunt a Tiffany brooch on a scarf.
The famous aqua blue used in all the packaging with the signature soft white bow, well it was chosen because it was the favorite color of Empress Eugenie the wife of Napoleon III. She was considered the most stylish woman in the world. After she died in 1870, Charles Tiffany who by then was known as The King of Diamonds, bought some of her jewels which made him world known.
Now Tiffany makes trophies for the Super Bowl, NASCAR and horse racing. Lady Bird Johnson ordered china for the White House and back in 1885 the company created the design for the great seal of the United States. You can see the eagle holding leaves in his feet on the back of every dollar bill. So, tell your friends you got something from Tiffany's in your pocket and show them your last dollar.
