After HardWear and the rejuvenated Atlas collections, the sights and sensations of New York City continue to inspire Tiffany & Co. This time though the American jeweller drew creative input from something decidedly nondescript and yet is completely ubiquitous throughout the city: the humble chain-link. But instead of replicating the familiar industrial shape in its raw form, Tiffany & Co. took the abstract route. Honing the jewellery pieces with a clean, modern and refined aesthetic that has just the right amount of edge, so it is strength meets elegance in the Tiffany Knot.
Smooth, rounded curves lend a soft, organic quality to 18K gold in the Tiffany Knot collection of rings, bracelets, earrings, and necklace. Even the diamonds sparkle with an exceptional quality, as the gemstones perfectly complement the goldsmithing—which was no cakewalk considering how the pieces are practically devoid of flat surfaces.
Just as an example, the Tiffany Knot pavé diamond hinged bracelet took a master craftsman over 22 hours to set completely with 400 gemstones all set at precise angles for maximum brilliance. Meanwhile, the knot motif isn’t merely decorative as it cleverly functions as the clasp, thereby allowing the rest of the bracelet to flow continuously around the wrist.
Currently available in large and small sizes, and crafted in rose and yellow gold (with the exception of a limited edition white gold bracelet set with tsavorites co-created with American artist Daniel Arsham), the Tiffany Knot collection makes stacking a breeze—and a pleasure—thanks to its double-row aesthetic.
Those looking for a more understated piece might also consider the single-row ring, with or without diamonds, although it would be the double-wrap choker that ultimately has our hearts tangled in a firm grip.
More than 300 diamonds were set by hand on this magnificent piece expertly handcrafted to flow harmoniously with the contours of the body for that perfect balance between statement and wearability.
