Tiffany & Co.

View History

Tiffany & Co. was founded by Charles Lewis Tiffany in 1837, with their first boutique opening on the corner of Broadway and Warren Street in Lower Manhattan. Tiffany & Co. has always been known as an arbiter of taste and style, selling jewelry, watches, sterling silver and china. No doubt you have heard the term a "New York Minute," which founder Charles Tiffany is credited with establishing.
