Tiffany Earrings  Our diverse selection of Tiffany Style lamps and reproductions will both beautify and illuminate your home with all the warmth and charm of the originals. Louis Comfort Tiffany did not begin his career in stained glass lighting. Long before Tiffany lamps were gracing the homes of people throughout the world caught up in the ” Art Nouveau” craze, the genius first tackled art, interior design, and even helping his father with his world famous jewelry store. A profound and deep respect and admiration for Nature dominated Louis Comfort. It affected his art, his interior design, and ultimately helped influence all facets of Tiffany Lighting including lampshade design and layout.

We have a complete line of Dale and Meyda Tiffany lamps and reproductions that pay homage to the Naturalistic impulses of Louis and bring the beauty of the outside world into the comfort of your home. It is somewhat ironic that the stained glass lighting universe created by Louis Tiffany originated at a time when mass production and industrialization were reaching their peak. While Tiffany lamps were indeed mass produced, all of the lampshades still had unique lighting patterns and colors due to the nature of the process used to make Tiffany lighting fixtures. The “favrile” glass patented and used to make all Tiffany lamp shades was born of an industrial process but brought beauty into the home like no other lighting fixture could.

One must be familiar with the artist in order to understand works like the Hanginghead Dragonfly Tiffany lamp.

How to Tell the Difference of a Counterfeit Tiffany Jewelry

Standard

Tiffany & Co Many brand-name items are often counterfeited and sold at lower prices. This is true of many designer items, including pocketbooks, shoes and jewelry. It is especially true of Tiffany jewelry, perhaps one of the more popular types of jewelry that is available. If you are interested in purchasing Tiffany jewelry but want to ensure that you’re not getting a counterfeit, here are a few things for you to keep in mind that will allow you to tell the difference between what is real and what may be a fake.

One of the most important things for you to consider when purchasing jewelry from Tiffany & Co. or any brand-name item, is that you should never trust an unsolicited email or message from any service. Tiffany’s is never going to send out spam email offering to sell their expensive jewelry at lower prices. If you do get one of those emails or if somebody sends you a message through another service, simply ignore it, or better yet, report it as a scam. Not only will you be helping yourself to avoid the possibility of purchasing something that is counterfeit, you may also be helping somebody else to avoid the problem as well.

It is also important for you to understand that Tiffany’s is never going to sell their jewelry at a discounted price. They don’t run sales as do many of the other jewelry stores that are popular. Along the same lines, there are never outlet stores that are going to sell Tiffany jewelry at a discounted price and you will never find that any of their items are sold at a wholesale location. In most instances, when you see such an offer, it will make the statement that they are buying their jewelry from China and getting it at a discount. Tiffany’s makes all of their own jewelry in the United States, with a select few items being made in Mexico, Spain or Italy.

You should also be familiar with the way that Tiffany’s marks their jewelry. Each piece Tiffany Sale of Tiffany’s jewelry is going to be stamped with the Tiffany & Company mark, and in most cases it is also going to be stamped with the date that the item was trademarked. This is also true of many other high-quality pieces of jewelry. In some cases, the counterfeit jewelry is not going to be stamped in the same manner so it will be easy to identify as a counterfeit. If you are purchasing any piece of Tiffany jewelry online, including on eBay or any other auction website, make sure that the markings are clearly shown in the photograph. If there is any doubt, ask the seller to post additional pictures.

Tiffany Co Charms: The Perfect Gift For That Special Someone

Standard

Tiffany Jewellery Sale Having trouble coming up with the perfect gift for that special woman in your life? Whether its for your wife, your girlfriend or your sister, shopping for women can be a challenge. But one gift that never goes unappreciated and is considerably more personal than a gift card is a charm from Tiffany’s.

Tiffany’s hand crafted charms come in a huge variety of styles and mediums, although gold and silver are the most popular. They are sorted in groups and collections, such as “Love” which consists of hearts and the word love in many variations; “Tiffany Locks” which has little heart padlocks; and “Travel & Hobbies” which includes some of my favorites – a little silver and Tiffany blue convertible, an 18k gold and diamond camera, a sterling silver Eiffel tower, and a silver and blue enamel Scooter.

All in all there are close to three hundred different charms to choose from. Some of the high end charms even have moving parts, such as lids that open and close. The charms can also be engraved, either by machine or if for a little extra by the hands of a skilled engraver, with the recipient’s initials, to allow for even more customization. Charm prices range from $65 for Tiffany Sale basic sterling silver discs to over $8,000 for two of Jean Schlumberger’s designs.

If you do a Google search for Tiffany charms, you will get over 7 million hits. However, know that the vast majority of those sites do NOT sell authentic Tiffany charms. Tiffany’s do not have an outlet, nor do their charms ever go on sale, so stay away from sites that mention anything along those lines. Also watch for “Tiffany style” or “Tiffany inspired” – again, not the real thing. The safest places to shop is either at a Tiffany store or on their website. Sure, it’s tempting when you see one of the high end charms for half the price, but if you want a true Tiffany charm, or if you’re giving one as a gift, don’t fall for it.

Tiffany’s charms are admittedly on the pricey side, and few of us are able to stroll in and impulse buy an entire bracelet, but I think collecting them slowly over the years is part of the fun. And as your tastes and likes change, so will your bracelet. If you build it up over a period of 10 years, it will become a little memoir on your wrist. And a valuable one to boot!
