The Tif­fany T bracelet, a chain of 38 sparkling rose­and princess- cut di­a­monds, is in­spired by sketches from the 1920s that de­sign di­rec­tor Francesca Am­fithe­atrof found in the com­pany’s archives. The sim­ple strand pairs as eas­ily with a white T- shirt and jeans as it does with an even­ing dress. “It’s for the girl who has a han­dle on what’s hap­pen­ing, what’s now,” Am­fithe­atrof says. “It’s an at­ti­tude, not an age.” Be­fore join­ing Tif­fany in 2013 as the first fe­male de­signer to helm the 179-year- old com­pany, the Lon­don na­tive and trained sil­ver­smith was a well-known jew­eler for Chanel and Fendi. The T col­lec­tion is in­flu­enced by her trav­els, as well as by el­e­gant women such as Jac­que­line Kennedy and, nat­u­rally, Au­drey Hep­burn. If you pre­fer to stack, Am­fithe­atrof says the bracelet is nim­ble enough to work with other pieces in the group. But as a gift for a loved one— or a splurge for your­self—it’s sweet enough to stand on its own. $20,000; tif­fany.com
