Gold Standard: RUBEDO from Tiffany’s
Oh hi guys!
Recently, I had a note from the reps for Tiffany’s saying that the company has launched a new style in an alloy called “Rubedo”. I’ve been seeing this line all over the place – especially on campus (where I should be documenting all the fun style I’m seeing…)
But the thing that intrigued me about Rubedo wasn’t the new styles (though… OH WOW. I love some of the larger pieces) or the color (it’s really pretty) but the makers marks they’ve included on all the pieces. I’m a sucker for detail – especially vintage detail – and this year, for their 175th anniversary they’ve included Tiffany’s signature on their 1837 designs. How cool, right?!
The bangles are beautiful… and they have the locks that have been super popular in the last couple years. The piece I’ve been seeing the most is this 1837 ring – both in this large width and in a standard width. And I don’t know what it is about this rosy colored metal, but I like it (and I’m usually such a silver/platinum girl).
But this piece – the large cluster necklace was a showstopper!
And of course – I tried them on. The rep that I talked to mentioned that generally, bangles don’t fit every girl. However, if you’re like me, and your hands are pretty slim, you’ll probably be able to wear the Tiffany’s bangles, since they come in Small, Medium and Large. As a girl with slimmer hands, I found that these bangles don’t slide down over your hand (which can really hurt!). I like that they stay mostly on my wrist instead of creeping down my arm…
I really love the amazing detail – especially with the signature, since makers marks have always been fascinating to me.

Disclosure: Nope! No gifts from Tiffany’s here – but I did get to go try on fancy jewelry, and I DO really like this collection.
