"Charles Lewis Tiffany has one thing in stock that you cannot buy of him for as much money as you may offer; he will only give it to you. And that is one of his boxes. The rule of the establishment is ironclad, never to allow a box bearing the name of the firm to be taken out of the building except with an article which has been sold by them and for which they are responsible."
-The New York Sun,1906
There is nothing classier than a Little Blue Box, right?
I got my mum this little silver locket necklace from Tiffany's for her 60th birthday.
I wanted to get her something really special that meant a lot to both of us and also something that wouldn't date over time, a forever piece that she could wear over and over again.
She had said (after many, 'Oh no, don't get me anything' protests) that she would like a piece of jewellery and when we spotted this we knew it was the one.
Neither me nor my mum owned anything from Tiffany's (I still don't) so it made it extra special when we first laid eyes on the little blue box tied in the most wonderful white ribbon, seriously we both gasped, haha!
There is no Tiffany's concession in Scotland (That I could find anyway?) so I ordered it online and the customer service was great and it came really quickly too.
It is honestly way more beautiful than these photos can even show. It's tiny, like 'just bigger than a thumb-nail' type small. I tried to capture the shape in the pictures as it is curved at the front and the back which makes it sit beautifully on your skin.
I know £100 is expensive for a teeny tiny necklace but I must admit I had the illusion that everything in Tiffany's started at about £300 so I was blown away to find some necklaces and other beautiful pieces around the £100 mark, which i thought was amazing for what you are getting.
I am so happy I got this for my mum as she really loves it
I just have to work on getting my own Little Blue Box now....
