Bright lights bounce off the sparkle of diamonds, and Tiffany blue awnings add a pop of color to the room. Touches of gold scatter about in the presence of white gold wall sconces. Looking up into the sky there lies a sparkling branch chandelier that dangles above the shoppers. With each step across the room one is further submerged into the world of luxury as they glide across marble floors. Tiffany is simply beautiful from head to toe. However, to see the true beauty that lies in Tiffany, all one must simply do is gaze through the crystal glass and admire the jewels that lay before them.
Breakfast at Tiffany: A Peek inside the Michigan Avenue Store
While peering through the jewelry counters, one will see the rarest forms of diamonds such as the golden hued Tiffany Yellow diamond. With a twist to tradition, one can see artfully structured rings and bracelets by Elsa Perretti, and a vibrant collection gushing with color by Paloma Picasso. Design director Francesca Amfitheatrof has reimagined Tiffany classics such as the Tiffany Bow, Tiffany Victoria, and Tiffany Infinity giving the classic designs a modern touch. Then there are the sparkling sapphires mirroring waves in the ocean from the Tiffany Blue Book collection. There is something for everyone behind the glass casings at Tiffany.
To enhance the shopping experience, private shopping salons are designed to mimic posh Upper East Side residences. One can run their fingers along the walls as they are outfitted in plush velvet. As one moves towards the back of the store there lies a touch of history with the first watch salon in the Americas. Franklin D. Roosevelt’s golden Tiffany watch lies in glass casing symbolizing the timelessness of the Tiffany watch.
After browsing the watches, then one can make their way up the grand marble staircase and be submerged in yet another world of wonder on the second floor. Who knew that Tiffany could get even more dazzling than before?
Whether you are searching for new jewels to dazzle your fingers, or living out your Holly Golightly fantasies, there is no place like Tiffany. Afterall Holly said it best “It calms me down right away, the quietness and the proud look of it; nothing very bad could happen to you there”
