{Tiffany & Co.} Day 1- Picking Out The Jewels

posted by on 2013.04.22, under Collaboration

Chriselle_Lim_blue_Book_Ball_Tiffany&co_9 Last week I was invited to join Tiffany & Co’s Blue Book Gala in New York, and  it was one of those moments where my heart stopped. I’ve had a long history with Tiffany’s,  and it was the same feeling of anticipation & excitement when  my boyfriend, now my  husband, bought me a Tiffany’s ring in celebration for our first anniversary. The past few days have been nothing but more than a dream as I celebrated the new Blue Book Collection that was inspired by the  Jazz Age.

I had the pleasure in spending some time with Melvyn Kirtley, Tiffany & Co’s Chief Gemologist , as he immaculately explained the process that went into each piece. As he explained it’s a “Labor Of Love”.

Necklaces were crafted to resemble the sublime grace of New York’s skyscrapers such as the Rockefeller Center. The mixture of round and baguette diamonds were set in the rhythmic patterns of jazz composition.

Above are two of my favorite designs from the collection.  This oval hinged diamond bangle with black lacquer with strikingly clean lines recalls the Jazz Age exuberance mixed with the current of modern times.

As a little girl, I’ve always  dreamt of wearing a tiara, and today I got the chance to wear a tiara of white & yellow diamonds in platinum.

This headpiece was created for the movie The Great Gatsby- evoking the design of a Native American headpiece of diamonds and freshwater cultured pearls.

The Blue Book Collection also celebrates colored gemstones. This necklace & bracelet worn above are designs inspired by the creatures of the sea and also the motion of the waves.

Stay tuned to see what jewels I ended up choosing to wear to the  Great Gatsby Cocktail party, and of course The Blue Book Ball. I’m also ecstatic to announce that we will be releasing the official Tiffany’s video on our channel this Thursday!
