The photos are full page so the details are very clear, the pieces whether jewels or silverware are nothing short from being just spectacular.
There is a comprehensive historical background detailing the history of Tiffany and the sources of inspiration behind their beautiful creations.
This is a highly recommended coffee-table book and would make a great gift.
Excellent photos, divine designs for past 170 years... Lot of style & beauty.

The above is an excerpt by Holly Golightly in Breakfast at Tiffany. First all, if you haven't seen Breakfast at Tiffany's, you have no business reading this review. Go back watch the movie, then we shall reconvene. No seriously, I mean it. Breakfast at Tiffany's puts Tiffany's on a pedestal where it belongs.
Dreamers are remarkable people. How amazing is that the capital used to finance Tiffany and Co or Tiffany and Young as it was called in 1837 was a meagre $500. Charles Lewis Tiffany(founder) had a hardheaded New England business sense, true genius, an entrepreneurial spirit, yankee faith in America, and an iron clad integrity. He recognized his innate gift and teamed up with John Burnett Young. They started out at 259 Broadway in lower Manhattan on September 14, 1837. They called their shop stationery and “fancy things.” Their opening day sales was only $4.98, it wasn't until 15 years after they started out, that they really found their voice.
John Loring has written and excellent memoir detailing the challenges these tenacious young men had to push through to bring their brand to where it is today. From sourcing out the finest crown jewels around the world, to opening other branches and moving their style in various directions. Also included are pictures of famous people in their luxury items.
The focus is mostly on jewellery from 1990 and earlier. Pages are dedicated to other products made by Tiffany & Co. (lamps, tableware, etc.) but be warned that very little space is devoted to Tiffany & Co's diamond rings, so you'll be disappointed if you're buying this book looking for gorgeous photos of diamond rings.
