Gold, Diamond and Ruby Fan Motif Clip Earrings by Tiffany & Co
A pair of gold, diamond and ruby clip earrings by Tiffany & Co, of bombé design, in 18K yellow gold, each composed of three convex bands set with alternating panels of baguette-cut rubies and diamonds of gradated size, the outer bands pavé-set with brilliant-cut diamonds, weighing a total of approximately 5cts across the pair. For pierced ears. Signed T & CO and bearing assay mark for 18K gold. Circa 1980.
Founded in 1837, by Charles Lewis Tiffany and John B. Young, Tiffany’s began life as a small ‘stationary and fancy goods emporium’ in Brooklyn, Connecticut. The store was initially called ‘Tiffany, Young and Ellis’ after the founders.
Tiffany’s is now New York’s most iconic jewellery store, thanks in part to the 1961 cinematic interpretation of Truman Capote’s novel ‘Breakfast at Tiffany’s’. And it’s unique Robin’s Egg Blue packaging.
