History of the company and color
It's been one hundred and seventy-eight years since the first store under the sign of Tiffany, Young and Ellis, was opened in New York, Manhattan. Three young people, taking $ 500 on credit, decided to start selling stylish and fashionable things. They were lucky, and in a few years the company, now called Tiffany \u0026 Co, began to trade in jewelry. The head of the company was Charles Lewis Tiffany. He was a skilful marketer and sensitively caught the moods of the masses and fashion trends. To make the production of his brand memorable, he from the first years of its activity came up with branded attributes. So, the ornaments bought in his shop, were packed in boxes of soft blue color with a white tape. Gradually, this complex multi-faceted turquoise tint acquired the name of a fashion house. Now the color of tiffany is registered as a trademark and is the official attribute of the company.
As you can see, the glorified company to the whole world gave the name to this shade. But why did Charles Tiffany choose the turquoise color to package his goods? Just a successful marketing move. In the mid-nineteenth century, this shade was very fashionable, like silver jewelry. The general enthusiasm for the sea, the freshness of the rain-washed foliage, the excellent combination of color with the moonlight of the precious metal - all this led Ch. Tiffany to the idea of using blue and white in finishing the branded boxes. And not only them. In 1845, the Blue Book, the catalog of the brand, was published. Judging by the name, it was also decorated in branded shades. Gradually, the color of tiffany became inextricably associated with the fashion house.

In 1851, the company introduced a standard in the use of 925 silver samples. And it was she who started the wedding rings with diamonds.
