Tiffany Unveils a New Collection
The jeweler is celebrating it with a special artist collaboration.
American artist Daniel Arsham works across several disciplines, from sculpture and digital art to film, furniture and set design.
Arsham’s work often manipulates one’s perspective of time, interpreting recognizable objects—a telephone, a teddy bear, a Yankees hat, or even a Porsche—as degrading and eroding artifacts in the fashion of ancient Greek and Roman sculptures (which he also replicates and reinterprets).
This makes Arsham a fitting partner for Tiffany & Co., a company committed to preserving its heritage, even as it continues to evolve and modernize, now with its new “Tiffany Knot” collection.
The jeweler and artist collaborated on a series of sculptures in which Arsham gives the classic Tiffany & Co. box his “future relic” treatment.
Crafted in bronze, the hand-finished patina is reminiscent of the signature “Tiffany Blue” shade.
“I always gravitate towards items that are immediately culturally recognizable. The Tiffany Blue Box has that power,” said Arsham in a statement via Tiffany.
“I wanted to address it in a way different than how it was originally intended by giving it a distressed, aged quality which represents its history, how much of a fixture it is in our world today, and how it will continue to be relevant decades, even centuries from now.”
The sculptures are available in 49 limited editions.
There is also a limited-edition bracelet from Tiffany and Ashram that is part of the new Tiffany Knot range.
The Tiffany Knot x Arsham Studio bracelet is crafted in 18-karat white gold with tsavorite and white diamonds.
Tiffany has been previewing Tiffany Knot on social media for the last week in a campaign with actress Anya Taylor-Joy, model Alton Mason, and freestyle skier and model Eileen Gu that pays homage to New York City with the hashtag: #KnotYourTypicalCity
The appropriately named new range depicts a knot on bangles, earrings, rings, pendants, and a choker, but is more edgy than sweet, taking its inspiration from the city’s grittiness, specifically an industrial chain-link.
Curving 18-karat yellow and rose gold forms weave together and end in sharp, jagged ends, contrasting softness with hardness, both qualities that Tiffany said New Yorkers require to “make it” in the city.
The collection’s biggest showstopper is a double-wrap choker with more than 300 diamonds. Also impressive are the double-wrap bracelets that conceal the clasp as part of the knot motif.
Expected to earn up to $4.5 million, the “Jarretière” bracelet is the star of Christie’s “The Magnificent Jewels of Anne Eisenhower” sale.
