If you reg­u­larly fol­low blog­gers Aimee Song of Song of Style or Chiara Fer­ragni of The Blonde Salad on ei­ther their blogs or In­sta­gram ac­counts, you would have no­ticed the bold At­las ban­gle in gold from Tif­fany & Co., or thin­ner ver­sions of it in dif­fer­ent ma­te­ri­als, stacked on their wrists. Slim­mer and more re­fined than its pre­de­ces­sors yet un­de­ni­ably a state­ment piece, the new At­las ban­gle is an in­stant eye-catcher. The up­dated col­lec­tion was un­veiled dur­ing the re­cent New York Fash­ion Week, where blog­gers joined Karen El­son, the face of the At­las col­lec­tion, at Tif­fany & Co.’s flag­ship store on 727 Fifth Av­enue for the launch.

With sleek Ro­man nu­mer­als as its key de­sign fea­ture, the At­las is one of the brand’s most iconic de­signs. First launched in 1995, the At­las col­lec­tion, named af­ter the Greek god of as­tron­omy and nav­i­ga­tion, takes inspiration from the his­toric clock that hangs out­side the New York City flag­ship store. The nine-foot bronzed statue of the mytho­log­i­cal fig­ure car­ries the clock that mea­sures ap­prox­i­mately four feet in di­am­e­ter on its shoul­ders. First mounted in 1853 above the Tif­fany store at 550 Broad­way, the clock is an en­dur­ing sym­bol of the brand’s rich his­tory.

Half­way across the world at the Tif­fany & Co. press pre­sen­ta­tion in Hong Kong, I try on the At­las ban­gle in 18-karat yel­low gold for size. It sits beau­ti­fully on my wrist and even matches my sunny yel­low dress. The thin­ner ver­sion in pink gold, bor­dered with daz­zling di­a­monds, was another stun­ning piece that caught my eye.
