American jeweller Tiffany & Co’s most recent attempt to draw inspiration from its home of New York City has resulted in a collection that truly encapsulates the sleek style of The Big Apple: the Tiffany Knot.
Inspired by an architectural symbol taken from the streets of the city, the chain-link, this collection transforms a familiar industrial shape into something modern and elegant. From its timeless style to its refined proportions, it is pure New York chic.
An interplay of opposites, the Tiffany Knot contrasts smooth organic forms with striking jagged angles on bracelets, rings, necklaces, pendants and earrings. All featuring the signature graphic knot motif, the 18-carat yellow and rose gold styles and pavé diamond iterations come together with sleek curves of precious metal and pointed edges that add sharp dimensionality.
The collection’s hero piece is a double-wrap choker that is hand set with more than 300 diamonds, instilling the design with movement and scale. On bracelets with a double-wrap effect, the gold knot conceals the clasp, making it appear as one continuous, connected design.
Now available at Tiffany & Co stores worldwide, the Knot collection reflects the exacting standards that drive the house’s constant search for innovation in craftsmanship, rigour of form and precision of proportions.
