Celebrating its foundations in New York City from 1837 all the way up to now, the house of the world’s finest diamonds aims to tell its story in a unique way.

Anthony Ledru, President and Chief Executive Officer of Tiffany & Co. shared, “Vision & Virtuosity tells the extraordinary story of one of the oldest luxury jewelers, through its nearly 200-year history of pioneering creativity, legendary craftsmanship and sourcing of the world’s most extraordinary diamonds and gemstones.” He added, “This exhibition perfectly captures our long-standing heritage in bridging tradition and modernity. We are thrilled to share the world of Tiffany & Co. and our unique high jewelry style with London.”

From high jewelry designs to the brand’s recently acquired Empire Diamond nearing over 80 carats, the exhibition takes guests on a journey of 185 years of its vision and virtuosity that is central to its values. The brand exhibition will also feature Tiffany’s famed window displays and important odes to popular culture, such as the original script from Breakfast at Tiffany’s, the 1961 romance comedy film which centers around the character Holly, who loves the brand store very much.
