trik­ing in­ter­pre­ta­tions of 19th-cen­tury de­signs from the Tif­fany Ar­chives fea­ture among the elab­o­rate cre­ations of de­sign direc­tor Francesca Am­fithe­atrof for the Blue Book col­lec­tion of high jew­ellery, which is built around the theme “The Art of the Sea” this year.

“Our jew­ellery honours the sea as the source of life and ac­knowl­edges the many ways we are in­ex­orably linked to the nat­u­ral world,” says Am­fithe­atrof. High­lights of the col­lec­tion in­clude a 21.04-carat round aqua­ma­rine bracelet in an ex­plo­sion of mixed­cut gem­stones, in­clud­ing tsa­vorites, sap­phires and di­a­monds, and a di­a­mond bracelet with a large, vi­brant opal at its cen­tre echo­ing the colours and flu­id­ity of the ocean.

Emma Stone made a splash on the red car­pet at this year’s Academy Awards with the help of the Blue Book, wear­ing wave­like bracelets in white and yel­low gold with rose-cut di­a­monds. She wasn’t the only celebrity to wear Tif­fany & Co to the Os­cars; Cate Blanchett sported a show­stop­ping aqua­ma­rine, di­a­mond and turquoise neck­lace in a fluid plat­inum set­ting, and Reese Wither­spoon showed off a plat­inum ring with a 3.03-carat fancy in­tense blue di­a­mond.

Tif­fany & Co took over celebrity chef Jean- Ge­orges Von­gerichten’s New York restau­rant ABC Kitchen for the of­fi­cial launch of the col­lec­tion. Wither­spoon and fel­low ac­tresses Olivia Wilde and Am­ber Heard were among the VIP guests who at­tended the in­ti­mate evening re­cep­tion.
