When it comes to brand name jewelry, traveling to the store that sells it isn’t always an option. But because pawn shops in Northern Virginia source our estate pieces from so many places, finding a Tiffany piece right here at Vienna Jewelry isn’t unusual. Rings, pin, earrings—we get it all, and you never know from one day to the next what exquisite Tiffany piece might come into our hands and be available to you.
Tiffany is world recognized for its luxury, style, and, particularly, its diamond jewelry. The company was founded by Charles Lewis Tiffany and John B. Young in 1837 as Tiffany, Young, and Ellis, but didn’t begin to focus on jewelry until 1853 when Tiffany bought out his partners and renamed it Tiffany and Co. Twenty-four years later, he would purchase the 287-carat fancy yellow diamond that became known as the Tiffany diamond; today, the diamond occasionally tours but holds a place of honor at Tiffany’s flagship store on New York’s Fifth Avenue. This discovery put Tiffany on the map and, today, there are 167 stores around the world. Tiffany even makes the Vince Lombardi Trophy for each year’s Super Bowl!
Today, the name is as recognizable as the distinctive Tiffany blue—that’s actually Pantone color 1837, but don’t bother looking for it, because the company owns it—packaging as denoting luxury, exquisite craftsmanship, and high-end standards of purity and quality. Owning Tiffany jewelry is like owning a bit of a legacy, and you can find unique pieces here at Vienna Jewelry on Maple Ave.
