Bringing a bit of New York City wherever it goes, Tiffany & Co. HardWear is all about embracing joy and optimism, but most of all it’s about celebrating one’s individuality. With those signature gauge links inspired by the architecture and energy of the Big Apple—Tiffany & Co.’s home city—the pieces range from subtle to subversive depending on how they play with tension, proportions, and balance.
Think voluminous links fully paved with sparkling diamonds, elegant freshwater pearls juxtaposed with industrial-inspired motifs, ball bearings sliding along on micro-links, and you begin to get the idea. Yet no matter which of the latest Tiffany & Co. HardWear creations have caught your eye, don’t ever forget that you are the centre of it all because everything comes down to how you wear the pieces.
We at Vogue Singapore just love jewellery that amplifies one’s personality and that wears fluidly from day to night, sitting comfortably on the body all throughout. Gender neutral designs are a big plus as well, and Tiffany & Co. HardWear and Tiffany T collections definitely check all these boxes.
To illustrate the versatility of these creations, we’ve roped in creative multi-hyphenate Mae Tan to give us a styling masterclass based on three different looks. Accompanied by our very own editor-in-chief Desmond Lim, she shares a little more about her approach to everyday fine jewellery and her best tips on jewellery stacking.
Tan’s fashion looks are utilitarian, with a sexy edge to them, evoking slight Y2K vibes through slinky proportions on top against a wider, slouchy fit at the bottom. With her bright yellow long-sleeved top, she tries on a chic bracelet stack combining a pair of Tiffany T bracelets with a large link HardWear chain in the middle—an effortless mix as she describes.
Partial to chunky earrings, Tan wants to bring a little more texture to her present outfit dominated by earthy neutral colours. She decides to have a little fun go with mismatched earrings, putting on HardWear graduated link earring on one side, and a classic double-link earring on the other.
When it comes to necklaces, Tan loves the idea of self-expression, and the transformative ability of necklaces to dial up her outfits. She always stacks necklaces, never wearing just one. To go with a Tiffany T extra large smile pendant and a Tiffany T diamond circle pendant, Lim proposed to up the ante with statement piece like the Tiffany & Co. HardWear graduated link necklace with diamond pavé. On what is a good stack, Tan says the trick is to always play with different lengths and widths.
