Just the words, “Tiffany Blue” conjure up thoughts of a little, blue, box, with a white satin bow. Then your mind starts to dream up the beautiful things that little box can hold.
The color known as Tiffany Blue was selected by founder Charles Lewis Tiffany for the cover of Blue Book, Tiffany’s annual collection of exquisitely handcrafted jewels, first published in 1845. Also referred to as robin’s-egg blue or forget-me-not blue, this distinctive color may have been chosen because of the popularity of the turquoise gemstone in 19th-century jewelry. Turquoise was also a favorite of Victorian brides who gave their attendants a dove-shaped brooch of turquoise as a wedding day memento.
Tiffany Blue was later adopted for use on Tiffany shopping bags, as well as in advertising and other promotional materials. True to the founder’s vision, the Tiffany Blue Box became an icon of luxury and exclusivity.
Pantone (the company responsible for developing the standardized color reproduction system) developed, and closely guards, the formula for the Tiffany Blue color. No one else can legally use THE Tiffany Blue color.
