Tiffany & Co. extends elegance to eyeglasses
Tiffany & Co. eyewear
The name Tiffany & Co. might bring to mind a sparkling solitaire engagement ring, an iconic diamond tennis bracelet or a fleur-de-lis key pendant. But Tiffany & Co. is more than just platinum and diamonds. The designer brand also carries a line of chic eyeglasses in its classically elegant style.
Tiffany & Co. made its name in fine jewelry, carving out a niche as a retailer of diamonds and other sparkling wares. The company started in 1837 in New York City with a store that later became a famous shopping destination.
About the Tiffany & Co. brand
A few years after the first Tiffany store opened in New York, company founder Charles Lewis Tiffany put the company name on the map. He started making trips to Europe, where he bought eye-catching gems to sell in the United States.
The history of Tiffany & Co. is woven throughout the history of the United States. For example, President Abraham Lincoln bought a Tiffany & Co. pearl necklace and earrings for the new first lady to wear to the 1862 inaugural ball.
Tiffany also designed the seal of the United States (as seen on the back of a one dollar bill). And Tiffany & Co. created the iconic Tiffany setting, the six-prong setting for a solitaire diamond ring that has played a starring role in millions of engagements over the years.
In 2008, Tiffany & Co., for the first time, decided to partner with a global eyewear company. The company signed a deal with EssilorLuxottica to make and distribute Tiffany & Co. brand eyeglasses and sunglasses.
The Tiffany & Co. brand is known for:
These values, which have established Tiffany & Co. as a household name in fine jewelry, also extend to its eyewear collection.
Tiffany & Co. glasses
Tiffany & Co. designs women’s eyeglasses in a wide range of styles that easily elevate an outfit, just like the right piece of jewelry.
You can find Tiffany & Co. glasses online or through many optical shops. Some department stores even sell Tiffany glasses fitted with clear plastic “demo lenses.” You can buy these frames and take them to your eye doctor to have prescription lenses installed.
If you’ve got your eye on a specific pair of Tiffany glasses, you’ll need to find out whether the frame shape and size fit your face and work with your prescription. It’s best to consult with an eye care professional who can take measurements, such as your pupillary distance, and help you pick the right frames.
You’ll also need to choose lenses for your new Tiffany glasses. You might consider adding thinner, lighter lenses, such as polycarbonate or high-index lenses. You may also want to add lens extras, such as anti-reflective coating, blue light protection, scratch-resistant coating and UV protection.
Tiffany & Co. glasses frame styles
Tiffany & Co. frame styles reflect the “rich and storied heritage” of the brand.
Tiffany & Co. glasses frames are available in both acetate and metal materials. They offer classic and trendy frames shapes, including butterfly, cat-eye, irregular, oval, panthos, pilot, rectangle, round and square.
One unique detail of Tiffany & Co. frame designs: Many of the styles feature the iconic Tiffany blue — an eye-catching robin egg blue that has been synonymous with the brand since the store began packaging jewelry in its Tiffany blue boxes. Some frame styles feature just a touch of Tiffany blue at the temple tip. Tiffany blue is a prominent color in other frames.
Tiffany & Co. sunglasses reflect “a heritage of craftsmanship and a 180-year legacy of innovation.” Each pair of sunglasses is packaged in the trademark Tiffany blue box.
Like Tiffany jewelry, Tiffany & Co. sunglasses add a punch of panache to your style. Many styles of Tiffany sunglasses feature eye-catching details. For example, the new Tiffany Atlas Eyewear sunglasses were inspired by a “reimagined Roman numeral motif.” The modern, black and gray shades feature a modern cat-eye shape with a metallic roman numeral design at the temples.
