Tiffany delves into its archives for a fine jewellery interpretation of its 1950s padlocks
Every so often, a piece of jewellery surpasses trends and seasons to become a timeless fashion staple. Tiffany’s graduated link necklace is a case in point. Reimagined over the years, it’s part of the iconic HardWear collection, inspired by the stark energy and architecture of New York, a city the brand has called home since 1837. The latest iteration is bigger and bolder than ever, with the signature gauge links crafted in 18k yellow gold at a magnified scale.
Continuing in this vein is the launch of Tiffany Lock, a modern-minamlist collection of four all-gender bracelets, in 18k yellow and rose gold, with pavé diamonds and without. Inspired by the padlocks that were produced by the brand up until the ‘50s, and that have continued to inform design shapes ever since, the bracelet’s clasp features an innovative swiveling mechanism that echoes the functionality of a padlock. “It’s all about unity, belonging, the universal bonds that tie us together forever—and the open-minded spirit of today’s generation," says executive vice president of product and communication Alexandre Arnault.
