Tiffany & Co. unveils a new pendant collection inspired by the ‘lock and key’ concept



Tiffany & Co. has launched a new ‘Lock’ pendant collection featuring an innovative clasp that echoes the functionality of a padlock, making it very lightweight and easily wearable for the customer. The design of the collection revolves around the concept of a ‘lock and key’, turning it into eye-catching pendants of 18k rose gold and round brilliant diamonds.

Tiffany has a long-standing legacy of discovery and exploration fuelled by Charles Lewis Tiffany’s passion for acquiring rare gemstones. He and his gemologists not only introduced the world to never-before-seen gemstones, but also played a major part in establishing Tiffany & Co. as a renowned jeweller.

Prior to the mid-19th century, coloured gemstones were seldom used in American jewellery. This changed in 1876, when gemologist Dr George Frederick Kunz joined Tiffany and embarked on a lifelong quest for the world’s most extraordinary gemstones. In fact, Kunz played a critical role in discovering new specimens including his eponymous stone kunzite in 1902, as well as morganite in 1910.

Extremely rare and highly coveted, it is challenging to find a single gemstone that meets Tiffany’s standards, let alone a matching suite. The company’s master jewellers bring these stones to life using time-honoured techniques and innovative design.

The Tiffany tradition of introducing exceptional stones continues to this day with its assortment of collectors’ gemstones. From cuprian elbaite tourmalines and Padparadscha sapphires to vivid demantoid garnets and alexandrites, these stones exemplify a vast range of colour, rarity and beauty presented by Tiffany & Co.
