Botanica by Tiffany & Co. – Honoring the timeless beauty of flora, BOTANICA:Blue Book by Tiffany & Co revisits botanical motifs from Tiffany’s heritage. Everything from humble to exotic species -together with Jean Schlumberger’s celebrated floral themes – evolve into innovative and transformable designs.
One Masterpiece. Five Designs
The Dandelion Necklace
With a center round brilliant diamond of over 12 carats, and 549 diamonds of over 85 total carats, this versatile dandelion-inspired necklace transforms into five unique styles.
A Rare Garden
Jean Schlumberger’s diamond-encrusted Feuillage necklace is set with over 100 total carats of tanzanites—a legacy gemstone that Tiffany & Co. proudly introduced to the world in 1968—evoking raindrops on foliage.
Created for the first time ever from an archival sketch by Jean Schlumberger—a design that he once considered for the Tiffany Diamond – the Fleurage bracelet features diamond flowers that secure a cushion-cut aquamarine of over 48 carats.
Homage to Heritage
Inspired by an archival Louis Comfort Tiffany design, this innovative bracelet abstracts an element of the dandelion flower. Fragmenting the circular shape of the flower’s seeds to form semicircular diamond forms, it is imaginative, modern and elegant.
Suspending from this necklace’s diamond chains of over 47 total carats are a South Sea white pearl, over 58 carats, and custom-cut sapphire “thistle orbs,” over 51 total carats. The opulent pearl creates a wonderful juxtaposition against the spiky texture of the hand-set sapphires.
A Perennial Design
First created in the 1950s, Jean Schlumberger’s Flowers and Leaves necklace is a dynamic work of art. With floral elements comprised of over 63 total carats of diamonds and sculptural platinum and 18k yellow gold vines, it remains as contemporary today as it was when he first designed it.
Orchids have been a prominent design inspiration for Tiffany designers for generations. For this transformable brooch, which can also be worn as a pendant, artisans sculpted platinum to form petals and accented each with painterly “brushstrokes” of 18k yellow gold. Set with rose-cut and round brilliant diamonds, the petals come together to uplift a striking pear-shaped diamond of over 3 carats.
