Jewellery Showcase: The History of Tiffany & Co.

With Thanksgiving being celebrated this week we thought it prudent to give thanks and share our love of vintage jewellery by one of our favourite American brands: Tiffany & Co.

Whether you’re lucky enough to have inherited some dazzling gems or are already an avid collector of vintage jewellery, knowing how to display your jewels can be challenging.
