Tiffany Private Salon-By Invitation Only
Almost no one knows about it and you need a special invitation to see it. It’s the ultra Private Salon at Tiffany’s. It debuted ever so quietly last December and it’s the special home to 0ne-of-a-kind Tiffany pieces which are viewed in equally amazing surroundings. The Blonde and The Brunette had a special invitation to visit it when we were in New York last week and it was a unique glimpse into the special world of Tiffany.
Naturally, we asked about the origin of the Private Salon. “It’s not a selling room, per se”, says Tiffany & Co.’s Michael Kowalski of the new by-appointment-only Salon on the mezzanine of the Fifth Avenue flagship.
“We like to think of it more as a discreet space where the discerning collector can view the best we have to offer and can work with our artisans and archives on custom design.”
In a palette of soft silver and pale grays with mirrored cast glass, the salon is more like a living room “where people bring you diamonds instead of martinis”, according to the noted architects Robert A.M. Stern who designed the space. The neutral tones were selected so the diamonds, rubies and anything else a woman may wear won’t clash with her gown. There’s even a secret dressing room for celebrities and mere mortals to change before a big event.
If you are invited, The Salon, is just off Tiffany’s Patek Philippe watch suite, which consists of a series of rooms reached by a private elevator. Clients enter through two magnificent brass doors (which I suspect have been patterned after a 1956 Tiffany window display). The waiting room is done in a pale robin’s-egg blue—and then you enter the main salon. It’s a soothing experience that allows you to absorb each piece of jewelry displayed in very special bronze vitrines inspired by 17th-century French decorative stands. Even the lighting was specially commissioned.
Of course there are also some very special touches: a fully-stocked wet bar, the private dressing room, and the atelier right off the main salon, where clients can review sketches and their custom commissions on a bleached wood table. And, of course, we did see everything from unique, carefully selected colored diamonds to amazing necklaces. The Salon is by invitation only. At 727 Fifth Avenue, New York; tiffany.com.

I don’t understand the resaon why they would charge men more. I’m offended at the notion.I do know that women’s hanes white socks are marked up over men’s because women will pay more. I buy men’s socks. I also know that MANY dry cleaners charge more for women’s blouses. I’ve actually complained to a small town dry cleaners that they charged more for women’s garments, and they changed their policy. I’m a fucking inspiration, ey?It’s BS that they charge more for men. It doesn’t make sense. Totally other side story: My cousin only has one hand (she had to have one amputated) and she has to demand when she gets a manicure that they only charge her half price. They ALWAYS try to charge her full price, but when she brings the issue up, they always comply. Businesses are greedy. It’s the nature of the beast.
Simple, to the point.
Can you get me into the salon room by invitation only?
I own no Tiffany jewelry or gifts but I hold a large amount of TIFFANY Stock.
Perhaps I would be printed to perchase something .
