Tiffany & Co. Is Now Selling Straws and Bone China Paper Cups
More and more fashion brands are entering the home scene. Interestingly enough, even infamous jewelry line Tiffany & Co. has joined in the major trend. Established in 1837, Tiffany & Co. is synonymous to the luxe life and is one of the best jewelers around. Come 2017, you don’t just wear Tiffany & Co., you adorn your home with it—if you have enough money to spare.
Tiffany & Co. just launched “Everyday Objects” their luxury Home & Accessories Collection. The collection has a variety of handmade sterling silver pieces from a protractor, ruler, drinking straw, and even a first aid box. In true Tiffany & Co. fashion, most of the pieces are ready to be engraved to make they truly yours. Two things are dominant in the Everyday Object collection: Silver and Tiffany & Co.’s signature blue. “These covetable accessories possess a whimsical wink that is quintessentially Tiffany,” shares the brand.
“I think what makes the collection unique is that it incorporates the best quality, craftsmanship and design with a level of functionality that allows you to use these things every day,” says Reed Krakoff, chief artistic officer at Tiffany & Co.
While it has received mixed reactions online, no one can deny that the pieces in the collection are nice looking pieces with VERY hefty price tags. Among the most talked about pieces is a set of bone china cups in Tiffany’s signature hue retailing for $95 for a set of two, a twisted silver straw retailing for $250, and a silver Tin Can worth $1000.
Whether you think it’s outrageous to pay $9,000 for a ball of silver yarn, or consider it an investment or even as an addition to the family heirloom pieces, Tiffany & Co. surely knows how to make everyday objects become more than they actually are.
