The Vision & Virtuosity exhibition brings over 400 objects from the brand’s archives to London’s Saatchi Gallery
May 31, 2022: Opening in London on June 10, 2022, the Vision & Virtuosity exhibition by Tiffany & Co. takes visitors on a journey through the brand’s archival high jewelry designs, its famed window displays, its recently acquired Empire Diamond of over 80 carats, and even important relics such as the original script from Breakfast at Tiffany’s. It is an interesting showcase that not only sparkles with diamonds, but also intrigues with its stories.
The exhibition is organized into seven chapters that will explore separate themes that are central to Tiffany’s brand identity, heritage, and creative influence.
Held at Saatchi Gallery, guests can first explore founder Charles Lewis Tiffany’s legacy and, in the subsequent sections, experience the works of some of the Maison’s most creative forces, such as Jean Schlumberger and Elsa Peretti. The third chapter is devoted to the annual Blue Book high jewelry collection, while the fourth room is centered on Tiffany’s heritage in the world of love and commitment, having introduced the iconic Tiffany Setting engagement ring in 1886. The fifth space is devoted to Breakfast at Tiffany’s, while the penultimate chapter is a spectacle of diamonds, dedicated to Tiffany’s renowned diamond creations. At the culmination of the exhibition, guests will have an opportunity to view the legendary 128.54-carat Tiffany Diamond.
“Tiffany has always been synonymous with elegance, innovative design, fine craftsmanship and creative excellence and Vision & Virtuosity celebrates the House’s most defining moments, showcases the incredible collection of archives, and exemplifies why Tiffany & Co. is such an iconic brand,” said Alexandre Arnault, Executive Vice President, Product and Communications, Tiffany & Co.
An accompanying exhibition catalogue, with a foreword by the late André Leon Talley and text by Vivienne Becker, presents the exhibition’s highlights, showcasing creations by everyone from Louis Comfort Tiffany and Gene Moore to Jean Schlumberger, Elsa Peretti, Paloma Picasso, John Loring, and the House’s other influential visionaries.
Vision & Virtuosity debuts at Saatchi Gallery on June 10 and will run through August 19, 2022.
