The Art Of The Sea
Sapphires and diamonds represent the riches of the sea and the strength and power of waves.
Tiffany CEO Frédéric Cumenal hosted the intimate dinner for approximately 100 guests at ABC Kitchen, with cuisine by three-star Michelin chef Jean-Georges Vongerichten. Joining Cumenal were Tiffany design director Francesca Amfitheatrof, acclaimed actress and producer Reese Witherspoon and artist Jack Pierson, along with Amber Heard, Olivia Wilde, Victor Cruz, Misty Copeland, Angelica Cheung, Prabal Gurung, Yasmin Le Bon, Jason Wu and Indre Rockefeller.
When rays of light penetrate the sea, graduating hues are revealed. For this ring, Tiffany designers and stone setters arranged blue tourmalines and white diamonds to evoke the colors of water at various depths.
During cocktails, guests had the opportunity to explore the Blue Book Collection, Amfitheatrof’s first for Tiffany, inspired by the power and beauty of the sea. They selected jewels to wear as renowned photographer Jessica Craig-Martin captured the moment with her unique view of fashion and style that has been featured in Vogue and Vanity Fair.
Her individual and group portraits created a moving picture of Blue Book jewels that sparkled. Diamonds flowed along necklines and draped across wrists, and a ring of exceedingly rare blue diamonds swirled in ever-greater circles, like stones shaped by water over millennia.
