The year was 1837. Charles Lewis Tiffany and his schoolmate John Young traveled
from New England to New York City with an idea and a dream that were to become
Tiffany & Co. While the first day of business brought a mere four dollars and 98
cents, the world of jewelry and luxury goods would never again be the same.
Charles Tiffany’s tireless search for one-of-a-kind objects charmed and fascinated
the wealthy of New York. But when the store obtained some of the French crown
jewels in 1887, Tiffany’s fame spread far and wide.
Charles Lewis Tiffany went on to introduce the nation’s first retail catalogue. And,
his obsession with the simple elegance of classic silver design earned Tiffany & Co.
the highly coveted Award of Merit at the Paris Exposition Universelle in 1867. This
was the first time an American company had been recognized by a European jury.
Of the many individual achievements made under the leadership of Charles Lewis
Tiffany, the introduction of the celebrated engagement ring in the 6-prong Tiffany®
Setting is one of the most noteworthy. But, of course, Charles Lewis Tiffany’s
grandest accomplishment was to establish America’s preeminent house of design
and the world’s premier jeweler.
Gilda is a voyeuristic film noir treat starring Rita Hayworth and Glenn Ford, that engages the viewer in a complex web of sado-masochistic triangles. When, for example, Gilda performs her signature number, “Put the Blame on Mame,” she is not simply enraging both of her suitors with her open sexuality, she is also crying out in pain for the love she is being denied. Juicy!
